A knife plugin to move a node, or all nodes in a role, to a specific environment

knife-flip is available on rubygems.org - if you have that source in your gemrc, you can simply use:

What it does
knife node flip mynode.foo.com myenv [--preview]
will move the node mynode.foo.com into the environment myenv. Passing in the --preview option it will dry-run the flip and show you what cookbooks and versions would be applied if it were actually flipped.
