Chef Server Crashes on Cookbook Upload


#1

Hi Chefs,

I had recently provisioned a new chef-server using 10.14.4 and was in the
process of moving all of our cookbooks onto the new chef-server when I get this
error client side,

Chef-Server had died and needed to be restarted. Most of the cookbooks made it
but a few did not, re-running the upload process kills it again.

#2

Looks like the Tempfile code that chef-server uses to temporarily store uploaded files is failing to create tempfiles, and this is causing a secondary error when it attempts to clean up after itself.

Is /tmp full on your chef-server box? Are you able to create files and directories there by hand?

Ahh, that was it. My /tmp file system was nearly full. Removing some junk
fixed the issue. Thanks!
