Core Chef Resource Checklist

Before suggesting a resource for inclusion please make sure your suggestion meets these criteria for resources built into Chef:

  • Automates an operating system component that ships by default on systems such as authentication, raid, disk partitions, firewalls, containers, or virtualization systems.
  • Does not attempt automate 3rd party applications such as database, web, or application servers, which are best suited for cookbooks due to their fast moving nature.

Describe the resource:

Applies a windows license. This is a routine operation which normally involves running slmgr.vbs.

Why should this be included out of the box?:

Applying a license to windows server installations is a routine operation.

What operating systems would it run on?


Current cookbook implementation:

None as of yet.
