Hi all,
  Maybe a dumb question :) I did this:

1) Bootstrap node, setting run list
2) knife node run_list add 'role[provider]'
3) ssh into the node, 'sudo chef-client'

It complained that the recipe for 'provider' didn't exist on the node.

What's the right way to do this? I can run bootstrap again (with the complete run list) but that seems heavy-handed: reinstalling Chef etc. What am I missing?
