Empty run list when bootstrapping windows nodes


#1

Hi there,

i want to bootstrap some Windows 7 nodes using knife-windows.
The bootstrap process goes all well but the recipe never gets executed. I
am doing the bootstrapping like this:

knife bootstrap windows winrm 172.16.36.130 -x user -P user -r
"recipe[windows_extras::java]"

I also tried the ssh way but there was no difference:
knife bootstrap windows ssh 172.16.36.130 -x user -P pass -r
"recipe[windows_extras::java]"

Creating a role with the recipe was also not a solution. In the chef
directory on the client node i have only four files: client.pem, client.rb,
validation.pem and wget.vbs. Where is my json with the run list!?

I am running ubuntu 12.04 with ruby installed via rvm (ruby 1.9.3p194
(2012-04-20 revision 35410) [x86_64-linux]), Chef 10.12.0 and i am using
hosted chef.
Does anyone else encounter the similar problem, do i miss something? I
would be very grateful for any clues :slight_smile:

Greetings,
Stoyan

p.s here the log from the bootstrapping:
