Bootstrap for CentOS6 client


#1

Is it possible to use the bootstrap method on the client if the last one is
CentOS6 ? According to the chef’s docs this scenario supports CentOS5 and
Ubuntu versions only .

Like : #knife bootstrap IP_ADDR -d centos6 ?

/Vlad.


#2

Yes, it’s possible, but centos6 bootstrap script is not available.
You can create your own bootstrap script, or modify exiting one.

At the same time, RBEL provides ready-to-use RPMS, although Chef is quite old(0.10.6): http://blog.frameos.org/2011/05/19/installing-chef-server-0-10-in-rhel-6-scientificlinux-6/

I strongly recommend using the omnibus installer for centos 6 clients. You
get ruby 1.9 and an up-to-date chef version w/out much effort

w/ in the newer versions of chef there is a also a nice bootstrap template
for centos 6

Yes – that’ll get you a Chef installation via the Omnibus installer.
I believe not specifying -d uses chef-full by default in recent
versions of Chef.

Contents of the chef-full template:
