Custom bootstrap script with custom client.rb


#1

Hi,

I am having an issue where I am creating a custom bootstrapping script, and I
would like to pass it a custom client.rb file. In the documentation it looks
like this is possible, I assume I am just missing something.

Thank you!

What’s the real problem? Can you give an example?
Have you looked at knife bootstrap scripts?

You can take required script and customize it as required. Place it in “.chef/bootstrap/my_bootstrap.rb” and call via “knife bootstrap -d my_bootstrap …”

For a better idea of what some of the method calls in the template map
to, take a look at the bootstrap context:
