Install specific version of client


#1

How do I install a specific version of the chef-client? I can’t find this
documented anywhere. The install.sh script takes a -v input to specify the
version number, but how do I get a list of version numbers? The S3 bucket
isn’t listable, so I can’t look through that.

I have to go back to an older version of the client than 12.0.0. The
decision to make the client wait interval + splay for it’s first run makes
it unusable.

Choose your OS, version, and arch then you can see a list of valid version under the Downloads section:

You could also check out the releases on the Chef github page here:

This is one method:
$ knife bootstrap --bootstrap-version --…
I can’t help you with the list of version numbers, though.

Also, the S3 bucket is listable, go to https://opscode-omnibus-packages.s3.amazonaws.com You might have to page through, though.
