About two weeks ago I got interested in Chef and decided to follow the steps shown here: https://learn.chef.io/manage-a… Everything went smoothly until I began bootstrapping my Windows 2012R2 Instance in AWS. I have RDPed into my instance and have done everything you stated in your article above, yet each time I type:
knife bootstrap windows winrm “IP” --winrm-user “Administrator” --winrm-password “XXXX” --node-name ‘MyNode’ --run-list ‘recipe[learn_chef_iis]’
I get the following error:
ERROR: Exception: HTTPClient::KeepAliveDisconnected: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. @ io_fillbuf - fd :4
Note: I get the same error with : knife wsman test
This has been ongoing for over a week now. Any help will be appreciated.
