Chef 11.6 Windows, error with templates?


#1

I tried booting up a new Windows Server instance today. Since the
knife-windows plugin always installs the latest version of Chef, I got 11.6.

My chef run blew up pretty quickly at the first cookbook_file I hit:

I read the release notes about the file changes, but I didn’t think I was

I rolled back to 11.4.4 on the instance and everything ran as expected.

This is weird. I ran a bunch of cookbooks on windows when testing 11.6 and never saw anything like this. Can you post the contents of your chef-stacktrace.out file?

I had a similar problem with the sensu cookbook last night. Basically, its having problems with paths that start with /,

For me, it didn’t happen on the first run, but only on subsequent runs, basically because it seems to only happen if the target file already exists, but having looked into it, it could happen in a number of circumstances.

Problem seems to boil down to the fact that /something is being interpreted as an absolute path in some instances, where really its relative to the current drive, but the windows file api wrappers are prepending \?\ to the path names to support long path names, unfortunately in order for that to work, the path name must be absolute.

To work around it in my case for now, I overrode the default sensu directory from /etc/sensu to c:\etc\sensu, which stops the error occurring.

Here’s an example in chef\win32\file.rb ( method self.symlink? ) where its failing.

    path = encode_path(file_name)
    if ::File.exists?(file_name)
      if ((GetFileAttributesW(path) & FILE_ATTRIBUTE_REPARSE_POINT) > 0)
        file_search_handle(file_name) do |handle, find_data|

Basically, the file_name contains /etc/sensu, which encode_path turns into \?\etc\sensu<file:///\%3f\etc\sensu>, which isn’t a valid path, as it doesn’t include a drive specifier ( \?\ format paths must be fully qualified ),
GetFileAttributesW then returns -1 because the file doesn’t exist, ( but the File.exists? call succeeds as it uses the un-encoded path name. ) the -1 passes the & FILE_ATTRIBUTE_REPARSE_POINT check as -1 has all bits set, and so it goes into the file_search_handle method, which in turn does its own encode on the file_name, and finally that’s where the actual file not found error is raised.

Unfortunately I’m a total ruby & chef noob, so for now I’m avoiding the issue for now by changing my path to include the drive specifier. I’m posting the details in the hope that someone more familiar with the code can suggest a proper solution.

Thanks

I’ll have to boot up another one and try it again… these are AWS
instances and I terminated them on error.

I’ll run through it today and post up the results.

I disabled that recipe and got a similar error the first time it hit a
template.

I read the release notes about the file changes, but I didn’t think I was
doing anything that should cause trouble. Is there anything in that
compiled resource that looks wrong?

I rolled back to 11.4.4 on the instance and everything ran as expected.

Brian

This is weird. I ran a bunch of cookbooks on windows when testing 11.6 and
never saw anything like this. Can you post the contents of your
chef-stacktrace.out file?

Weird is right…

I just launched an instance using our standard AMI (Windows server 2008 r2,
latest updates as of maybe 4-6 weeks ago)

Running along, processing templates just fine, then breaks with a

The template definitions are identical for worker-batch and
worker-interactive:

This worked:

template “/etc/sensu/conf.d/worker-interactive.json” do
source "sensu-confd/worker-interactive.json.erb"
owner node[‘sensu’][‘user’]
group node[‘sensu’][‘group’]
mode "0644"
notifies :restart, “service[sensu-client]“
only_if {File.exists?(”/etc/sensu/conf.d”)}
end

This failed:

template “/etc/sensu/conf.d/worker-batch.json” do
source "sensu-confd/worker-batch.json.erb"
owner node[‘sensu’][‘user’]
group node[‘sensu’][‘group’]
mode "0644"
notifies :restart, “service[sensu-client]“
only_if {File.exists?(”/etc/sensu/conf.d”)}
end

/etc/sensu/conf.d/worker-batch.json was created but has no content.
/etc/sensu/conf.d/worker-interactive.json is correct as one would expect
based on the output.

And the stacktrace:

I disabled that recipe and got a similar error the first time it hit a
template.

I read the release notes about the file changes, but I didn’t think I was
doing anything that should cause trouble. Is there anything in that
compiled resource that looks wrong?

I rolled back to 11.4.4 on the instance and everything ran as expected.

Brian

This is weird. I ran a bunch of cookbooks on windows when testing 11.6 and
never saw anything like this. Can you post the contents of your
chef-stacktrace.out file?

And more. Re-running the same recipe now gives me an error on a file that
was created by Chef on the last run.

/etc/sensu/conf.d/worker-batch.json was created but has no content.
/etc/sensu/conf.d/worker-interactive.json is correct as one would expect
based on the output.

My chef run blew up pretty quickly at the first cookbook_file I hit:

I disabled that recipe and got a similar error the first time it hit a
template.

I read the release notes about the file changes, but I didn’t think I was
doing anything that should cause trouble. Is there anything in that
compiled resource that looks wrong?

I rolled back to 11.4.4 on the instance and everything ran as expected.

Brian

This is weird. I ran a bunch of cookbooks on windows when testing 11.6
and never saw anything like this. Can you post the contents of your
chef-stacktrace.out file?

As Andrew said before, this is a bug that’s triggered when you use paths without drive letters on Windows:

https://tickets.opscode.com/browse/CHEF-4419

For now, the best thing to do is add the drive letter to the paths, or else you can specify --bootstrap-version 11.4.4 when installing.

Hm… I must have missed something. I don’t know what you are referring to
when you say “As Andrew said”. But, that bug does make perfect sense.

For now I’m installing 11.4.4 and that is keeping things happy. I’ll have
to think about whether or not we want to go through and do conditional
paths on all of our code (Our infrastructure is about an 80/20 mix of
Linux/Windows, so having /etc/ is correct for most use cases).

Thanks!

A probably-minor thing, but Windows uses the drive of the CWD for ambiguous paths like that, so /etc can mean c:\etc or n:\etc (for example) depending on your CWD. We plan to standardize this to system drive in the future:
