Chef-client -j option


I have created below json as input. i updated runlist of my node with sqlserver.


I ran below command to install sql server.

chef-client -j input.json

Sadly, it installed 2014 version which is declared in cookbook with default scope.:frowning: Please help me here.


Do you have the output from the run? That would probably help diagnose what has happened.

Unfortunately, i did not save the output. But version or attribute values which i passed in json is not updated in chef server
