Book Description

This book begins with an introduction to the functionality and benefits of using Chef to manage Windows systems. From there, you are shown an overview of the Chef architecture and how to prepare a Windows host so that it can be managed by Chef, followed by an example of writing code to install a popular .NET application with Chef.

This book looks at how Windows system administrators can effectively leverage Chef as an automated system management tool to simplify their lives through managed infrastructure. Included are practical examples that will help you to understand how to take advantage of Chef when managing your infrastructure.

By the end of the book, you will be able to deploy software, provision hosts (including cloud servers), develop and test recipes for multiple platforms, and manage Windows hosts using the powerful tools that Chef provides.

What You Will Learn

  • Integrate Windows systems with Linux-based systems in a heterogeneous network
  • Automate the configuration of new Windows servers to provide various network services such as a web application
  • Scale your Windows infrastructure in a consistent and automated manner with cloud providers such as AWS, Rackspace Cloud, and Azure
  • Deploy new hosts into your infrastructure in minutes instead of hours
  • Develop cookbooks and recipes for your custom Windows configuration
  • Deploy and configure a complete .NET / IIS application to a Windows server using Chef
