Opscode Chef installing Eclipse with Plugins on Windows 2012



I am install Eclipse on a Windows 2012 using Chef remotely. I am able to
accomplish this with no issue. The problem I am running into is installing

It seems that I need the “windows_batch” to run as administrator. I am using
the knife-windows plugin. The recipe I am using is below:

windows_batch “install_maven” do
code <<-EOH
C:\eclipse\eclipsec.exe -nosplash -application
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director -repository
-installIU org.maven.ide.eclipse.feature.feature.group

The issue I see is it just hangs when it reaches this recipe remotely.

The recipe works when I run chef-client locally from a powershell prompt ran as
administrator and I change “windows_batch” to “batch”. How can I make this
work when I run this remotely?

Please let me know if you need more details.

Thank you for the help!
