How to self-bootstrap a windows node?


#1

We are provisioning windows VMs using Power Shell, is there a way we can make the windows node self-bootstrap itself? can I use a generic service account for all the nodes when it self-bootstrap itself?


#2

You can put a script on these systems and have it run the script during/after the build.


#3

Yes, self bootstrapping is possible. See this here for some explanation https://docs.chef.io/install_bootstrap.html#unattended-installs. The process is quite simple. Just have your organizations validator ready and everything will work out by itself.
