I am working on an isolated lab to learn to use Chef. Currently trying to bootstrap a node. I have a copy of the chef client .msi file. Now I just need a place to put it where it can be accessed from a URL. I am a Windows SA. I could build an IIS server in my lab, but for simplicity and learning I would prefer to put it on my (Ubuntu) Chef Server.
I have installed Chef-Manage on the Chef server and connected to that via a web browser, so I know I have a working web server. Where is the content for this web server in the Chef server file system? I have been searching the file system for things like my organization name which appears to be a folder in the URL used to admin Chef via the Manage console, but I can’t find it.
My immediate goal is to copy the client to a location on Chef server and use the --msi-url in the knife bootstrap windows command to download this file in the bootstrap process. My secondary goal is just to understand more about how Chef Server works.
