How Do You Fix “404 not found” Errors When You Run Knife Commands?

Problem scenario
You try to run a knife command but you get 404 not found.  What should you do?

Run this command: knife client list

If you get a 404 error with this command, then look at your client.rb file.  Is the chef_server_url correct?  Is the hostname actually the Chef server or is it something else?  Is the "organizations/companynickname" present and correctly typed?

You may want to back up your knife.rb file then recreate it by running this command: knife configure

This command will prompt you to overwrite your existing one.  It helps you recreate the file step-by-step. If this posting has not helped you, you may also want to see this posting.
