I am very new to chef / DevOps
I have installed chef DK & knife plugin.
chef gem install knife-vsphere
gem install knife-vsphere
Now I am able to access vmware vsphere, I can get list of VMs, create VMs, etc.
knife vsphere vm list
knife vsphere vm clone Windows10
Also I am able to access VMs remotely using execute command & run executables/commands remotely.
knife vsphere vm execute Windows10 C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\test.bat
I have not connected to chef server/cookbooks/routines. Will I be able to automate installation of an application ? Is chef server necessary? How can I start the process to automate the process of creating an VM & installing required applications in it? Could you please guide me in this regard. THANKS in Advance.
