Hi Maven,

Thank you for catching that and letting us know! 

We wrote the directions assuming users were following our new documentation on installing Chef Server, which will obviously not always be the case. We added a note to these directions as well as the ones for Linux and Mac with an explanation on how to create the admin user. The webui is also an admin user, so you can feel free to use that if you'd prefer. Please let us know if you run into any issues with the directions now that they've been updated.

Hi guys -

I'm not sure if/when this changed, but when I follow your instructions for creating a new knife client (http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Workstation+Setup+for+Windows), it winds up NOT creating a client.

The first time through, you need to do "knife configure -i" which also means you need to have a copy of the webui.pem file available as well (locally).

Am I missing something?
