Chef exec rake allinone Fails

Hi all,

I’m having an issue running the chef exec rake allinone command to install openstack. I’m using vagrant and virtualbox. Below is the output I get when I run it. I’m very new to this, so sorry if this is a simple thing but any guidance on getting this working would be greatly appreciated!

courtney@CTPCourtney:~/openstack-chef-repo$ chef exec rake allinone
chef exec chef-client --force-formatter --no-color -z --config /home/courtney/openstack-chef-repo/.chef/knife.rb vagrant_linux.rb allinone.rb

I suggest coming to #openstack-chef on freenode to aks there, there’s a couple questions we should walk through first to figure out what’s happening for you.


Sure thing! I didn’t want to go dumping a load of stuff in the IRC so thought I’d post here :slight_smile:

Unfortunately no one answered.

What release of ChefDK are you using? 0.9.0 is the most recent that is known to work without Weird Things happening.

I’m using 0.12.0

Try downgrading to 0.9.0, as that one is known working. I’ll do some
testing with newer releases of chefdk to see what works for functional
