Daily Notes – Chef Infra Lesson 6

Notes taken from my personal attempts to automate the client joining process. The useful stuff is on page 2. Page 1 is a lot of me stumbling around and flailing madly trying to make something… anything work. Once again, when you are stuck, the best thing to do is go to the manual. I used the two wikis linked below extensively in this process to get myself unstuck:

Chef Authentication Process
Chef Client Executable

I kept the first page up, because I think seeing failure is important. Everyone wants to show off their highlights. but that is disingenuous, and I don’t like that in other people, so I wont give that to you either. But seriously, if you want to know how to efficiently and securely join a chef node to an infra server, skip to page 2 of the PDF.
