Hi guys,

Is there a way to bootstrap windows node and initially set up chef-client to be run as a service?
Without running "chef-service-manager -a install" and "chef-service-manager -a start" on node side afterwards.

Thank you in advance for your responses.

After a few release candidates and appreciated testing, we've released
knife-windows 0.8.4. This release adds the flags and support necessary
to configure your chef-client ssl settings when bootstrapping a new
Windows node, including copying the contents of your
trusted_certs_dir. Some of these flags can be set on the command line
as well as in your knife configuration file. For example:

knife bootstrap windows winrm -x Administrator -P
 ' --node-verify-api-cert --node-ssl-verify-mode peer

For more information on configuring SSL for your chef-client
communications, see these resources:
