Is bootstrap recommended?


#1

Hi,

I have Ubuntu 10.04 for node, and 12.04 for master. Should I install 0.9 or
0.10?
Also, is it better to install via boostrap?

Thanks.

You should definitely start at the latest, which is 10.12.0 (we shifted the version numbers to the left). 0.9 is past EOL now.

The preferred installation method is dependent on your environment. If you build new servers a few at a time, bootstrapping works great. If you’re bringing up 100s at a time, you will want to invest more time into integrating Chef with whatever PXE setup you have.

For getting started with Chef, I’d recommend using the omnibus installer.

Thanks.
