NAME

The knife configure subcommand is used to create the knife.rb and client.rb files so that they can be distributed to workstations and nodes.

Syntax

This subcommand has the following syntax when creating a knife.rb file:


$ knife configure (options)


and the following syntax when creating a client.rb file:


$ knife configure client DIRECTORY


Options

This subcommand has the following options:
--admin-client-key PATH
  The path to the private key used by the client, typically a file named admin.pem.
--admin-client-name NAME

-c CONFIG_FILE, --config CONFIG_FILE
  The configuration file to use.
--chef-zero-port PORT
  The port on which chef-zero will listen.
--[no-]color
  Use to view colored output.
-d, --disable-editing
  Use to prevent the $EDITOR from being opened and to accept data as-is.
--defaults
  Use to have Knife use the default value instead of asking a user to provide one.
-e EDITOR, --editor EDITOR
  The $EDITOR that is used for all interactive commands.
-E ENVIRONMENT, --environment ENVIRONMENT
  The name of the environment. When this option is added to a command, the command will run only against the named environment.
-F FORMAT, --format FORMAT
  The output format: summary (default), text, json, yaml, and pp.
-h, --help Shows help for the command.
-i, --initial
  Use to create a API client, typically an administrator client on a freshly-installed Chef server.

  The path to the chef-repo.
-s URL, --server-url URL
  The URL for the Chef server.
-u USER, --user USER
  The user name used by Knife to sign requests made by the API client to the Chef server. Authentication will fail if the user name does not match the private key.
-v, --version
  The version of the chef-client.
-V, --verbose
  Set for more verbose outputs. Use -VV for maximum verbosity.
--validation-client-name NAME
  The name of the validation client.
--validation-key PATH
  The path to the validation key used by the client, typically a file named validation.pem.
-y, --yes Use to respond to all confirmation prompts with "Yes". Knife will not ask for confirmation.
