I have been hitting a wall on this one for over a week now. I used the "Starter Chef Workstation" package from the Chef hosting server ( [https://api.chef.io). I have everything working properly, but when I bootstrap (from windows PowerShell) to my Chef-Client, I noticed it is installing the newest version of Chef-Client, which the software I am working, can't use. I am trying to find which config/rb file in my chef-repo or opscode folder, I would need to edit to stop the "chef-client-latest.msi". The below syntax is what PowerShell is spitting out if it is of any help (NODEMACHINE = my Chef-Client hostname:
NODEMACHINE Checking for existing downloaded package at "C:\Users\trev9414\AppData\Local\Temp\chef-client-latest.msi"
NODEMACHINE Found existing downloaded package, deleting.
NODEMACHINE Attempting to download client package using PowerShell if available...
NODEMACHINE powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -InputFormat None -NoProfile -NonInteractive -File C:\chef\wget.ps1 "https://www.chef.io/chef/download?p=windows&pv=2016&m=x86_64&DownloadContext=PowerShell&v=14" "C:\Users\trev9414\AppData\Local\Temp\chef-client-latest.msi"
NODEMACHINE Download via PowerShell succeeded.
Please let me know if your have any further questions or need more info.
Thanks for any help!
