Chef server 0.11 on Debian Wheezy


#1

Hello!

Is there any known issues with running latest Chef server on the Debian
Wheezy?
It looks like only Ubuntu is officially supported at the moment.

Hi,

Is there any known issues with running latest Chef server on the Debian
Wheezy?

Not even chef-client is available for wheezy :frowning:

I’m running the ubuntu 11.04 version of chef-server on wheezy - not in
production, yet, because of CHEF-4339 [1], but this is not a wheezy-only
problem.

So I can say that it runs on wheezy and I haven’t encountered other
trouble until now.

Yours
Steffen

I am very happy running chef from gems on wheezy. Adopted my bootstrap
(and pxe_dust) scripts for that and it works like a charm.

But yes, one of the points stopping me from upgrading our chef-oss
server to 11 is because of missing debs for wheezy…

Have fun,

Arnold

Have you tried uploading data from the 0.10 chef server of creating
items, like roles or clients, manually?

I have installed chef 0.11.4 on fresh wheezy system, but i’m not able
to upload config, nor edit anything manually. For example:

root@chef:~/transfer# knife role list
[nothing here]

root@chef:~/transfer# knife role create test

Created role[test]
root@chef:~/transfer# knife role list

[nothing here]

Hi Denis,

Yes, I’ve followed the 10->11 guide [1].
Uploading things one by one looks okay, only knife upload fails at
random places.

I have installed chef 0.11.4 on fresh wheezy system, but i’m not able
to upload config, nor edit anything manually. For example:

so what’s the error?

Yep, it acts same here. The only problem is that nothing is created even
when knife reports that everything went ok.

So, the error is: i’m not able to create any object in chef server.
knife reports that everything is okay, but i do not see kreated objects
via ‘list’ commands. Even more - i can create same objects with same
name again and again.
