Chef "iis_config" resource not working with "notifies"


#1

I have been writing a sample cookbook to evaluate new IIS LWRP and I notice that “iis_config” resource does not seem to execute notifies statement in it.

Here is how iis_config resource looks like in my cookbook:

[cid:image001.png@01CF0C71.40531C20]

Following are the resources it notifies:

[cid:image002.png@01CF0C71.40531C20]

On running chef-client on node, I expect to see “I have been called” in output but I don’t see it. Can someone confirm the behavior?

Thanks

I seem to remember “puts” not working.

Try “Chef::Log.info ‘foo here’” to write ‘foo here’ to your chef client
logs…

It does not seem to have made any difference? Also, is IIS LWRP idempotent?

Some resources are not idempotent. I discovered this the hard way with his_config for example

It will be great if Chef documentation on IIS LWRP mentions which resources are idempotent and which ones are not.

Did anyone get a chance to confirm the behavior I mentioned in this thread?

Thanks
