       The  knife  configure  subcommand  is  used  to create the knife.rb and

       nodes.

       Syntax

       This subcommand has the following syntax	when creating a	knife.rb file:

	  $ knife configure (options)

       and the following syntax	when creating a	client.rb file:

	  $ knife configure client DIRECTORY

       Options

       This subcommand has the following options:

       --admin-client-key PATH

	      to provide one.

	      The $EDITOR that is used for all interactive commands.

       -E ENVIRONMENT, --environment ENVIRONMENT

	      mand, the	command	will run only against the named	environment.

	      client to	the Chef server. Authentication	will fail if the  user
	      name does	not match the private key.

       -v, --version
	      The version of the chef-client.

       -V, --verbose

	      mands that work against the Chef server to also work against the
	      local chef-repo.
