When the Chef client starts, finishes or performs any task, it used to be logged in the application log in Windows with meaningful descriptions. Although a log for the event is still showing, it doesn’t give any description of what is happening.

Chef Version

>= 15.0.320

Platform Version

Windows Server 2016 and 2012R2

Replication Case

  1. Run chef-client either manually or via scheduled task to perform converge action.
  2. View the Windows Event Logs for Chef Infra Client
