How to stop chef client installation


#1

Hi,

I am new to Chef. I am currently used Chef to provision a vSphere VM using chef-provisioning-vsphere tool and I would like to ask how do I stop chef client from being installed into the VM?

It seem to me it will install automatically onto the Chef node.
I am asking this is because I want to download chef client and install into a VM before making it into a VM template and use that template to spin new VM.

Thanks. :slight_smile:

I have managed to solve it by putting
install_msi_url: โ€œfile:///path_to_url_to_chef_client_version.msiโ€ in convergence
