CHEF SERVER and client installation guide on linux


#1

Hi,

i am very new to Chef and eager to know more about it. i need to install
packged on some servers and edit bachrc file with some entries. i’ve written
recipe for it like this.

package “rpm_package” do
version "11.1.0.7.0"
action :install
source "/tmp/oracle-instantclient11.1-basic-11.1.0.7.0-1.x86_64.rpm"
provider Chef::Provider::package::Rpm
end

package “rpm_package” do
version "11.1.0.7.0"
action :install
source "/tmp/oracle-instantclient11.1-sqlplus-11.1.0.7.0-1.x86_64.rpm"
provider Chef::Provider::package::Rpm
end

cookbook_file "/opt/browsersoft/.bashrc " do
source “.bashrc” # This will check chksum and if not matched replace the
content
mode "0644"
end

however, i’m not sure how to test these recipe. what i am assuming is you need
to cookbook created for and chef server and client installed on nodes.

so, please send me steps how to configure chef server and client and linux
nodes and how chef server will communicate with chef client as well with
detailed steps

please give me details which files i need to cofigure to have these recipe run.

your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Goutam
