    OK so after a two days rest from the subject for our next session please perform the following:
    1. git clone [masked]:tikalk-cookbooks/chef_workshop.git
    2. cd chef_workshop/chef_server_route/chef-server
    3. vagrant up
    4. wait ~10-12 minuets you should have a chef-server
    we will use this chef server next session
    In addition (in order to save time) you can instantiate 1/2 chef clients like so

    1. cd chef_workshop/chef_server_route/ubutnu_node
    2. vagrant up

    In both cases once they are "up" you can vagrant halt which will stop the instances, so in the next session you will "vagrant up" and it will just start the machine.

    Are there any prer-required installations on our laptops (besides the IDE)?

    • Haggai Philip Z.

      Personally I do not use an IDE for chef.

      If you want to prepare you can install chef, vagrant, virtualbox, Git and on windows cwsync. But we will have time during the workshop for that.
