I have been struggling with speeding up bootstrapping nodes and it seems quite difficult to find an easy way.
First, I tried using Squid proxy but chef bootstrap uses https communication to download packages and my squid proxy doesn’t cache the contents with https communication. I have tried Squid to cache for https communication but it seems pretty complicating and not recommended by its design purpose.
So second, I have tried making local apt repo(since I usually work with Ubuntu) to speed up downloading the packages but it seems there is no option for ‘chef bootstrap’ to download chef packages from a specific URL.
Can anybody help me to solve this problem? Am I doing wrong or misunderstanding?
