Knife windows, what am I missing?


#1

This is on a RHEL workstation running chef-client v11.12.8

[chef-repos]# gem list | grep windows
knife-windows (0.8.2)
[chef-repos]# knife winrm help
FATAL: Cannot find sub command for: ‘winrm help’

Of course the following command breaks

Knife bootstrap windows winrm …

Chris,

Are you using chefdk? If so, try chef gem list instead to see if
knife-Windows is installed into chef’s ruby.

If you just try “knife” does that return a list of knife winrm commands?

Not chefdk, but rather chef-client package itself. “knife” command does not show any winrm sub-commands of course.

Thanks!

Then basically, the knife you’re using doesn’t know about knife Windows.

Check your system for multiple knifes (knives?) and figure out which knife
has knife Windows installed and make sure you use that one.

Personally, I prefer to ensure I only have chefdk on my workstation. Really
helps clean up these problems.

Thanks. I’m trying to install chefdk from here http://downloads.getchef.com/chef-dk/redhat/#/0.3.0

Which version works for RHEL 5.x? It’s not clear from the page. I know the latest version (v0.3.2 is for RH6.)

Not for ChefDK

RHEL 7.x being omitted is most likely a mistake and the RHEL 6.x
artifact should work fine there, but RHEL 5.x being omitted was
deliberate.
