Chef-server 12.5 install failing at user-configure step


#1

I have been following the instructions for installing 12.5 at:

https://docs.chef.io/install_server_ha_drbd.html

When I get to the point of installing the front end primary server, I am seeing the following in the /var/log/opscode/opscode-erchef/crash.log:

==============================

It repeats many many times…

if I try the chef-server-ctl user-create I get the following:

[root@wil-vct01 opscode-erchef]# chef-server-ctl user-create c Randall V*** r******@.com ‘pass123’ --filename /home/c/c*****.pem

Response: 503 - Service Unavailable: Sorry, we are unavailable right now. Please try again later.

I have tried repeatedly uninstalling and reinstalling from the backend forward and this is where i get blocked.

Thanks!!
