I am using Windows 8.1. Which Chef do I need to install to cover all Chef modes like workstation, node, and chef-server?
I want all three of these in my Windows 8.1.
A node in chef terminology is a machine managed with chef-client.
Chef-client is available for various OS, windows, Linux, Aix, Mac etc.
However the chef-server is only available for linux.
For node, you need to install chefclient
For chef server, you need to install chefserver - not available for windows
Note: Always use the stable and latest version of the above-mentioned components.Hope this helps.
