I have a local chef git repository with several node files in it. If I
run ‘knife status’, then the (opscode) chef server shows that there is a
server for which we do not have a node file. (The server exists, is up
and running, and is running ‘chef-client’ locally with no problems.)
My question is this, since the chef server must have had a copy of the
node file at some time - either through ‘knife node create’ or from a
local file using ‘knife node from file’ - is it possible to ask the chef
server for a copy of that file?
I have looked at the ‘knife download’ command but it doesn’t seem to do
anything in this case. That is, if I run 'knife download '
nothing happens, it just returns to the command prompt. Nothing is
downloaded. I have also looked at the git logs, and can see no
indication of the node file ever being seen by git.
Knife version is 11.12.8.
