Chef Server manage installed but get Are You Looking For the Chef Server?


#1

Hi All,

I am installing Chef Server on my lab environment for learning purposes. The lab environment is primarily Windows Server-based.

I’ve setup a Windows Server to host the dev kit.

I ran the commands to setup Chef Server, namely install the .deb file and reconfigure/start the server, as well as install the chef-manage solution (which I hear is deprecated???).

But when I go to the server over the web, I see;

Are You Looking For the Chef Server?

And no web ui?

Please advise :slight_smile:


#2

Did your run opscode-manage-ctl reconfigure on you Chef server after you installed manage?

Also, as far as deprecation, a lot of the node data is moving to the automate space, but I don’t think it is officially deprecated. Leveraging the APIs and knife should be the way you want to manage the chef server though, versus leveraging the GUI.


#3

I’ve just run this and it comes up with some terms to agree. I’m a Linux newbie (running the Chef Server on Ubuntu), how can I agree to all of this and run this command?


#4

Hitting space should continue down the agreement and get you to a prompt to
answer yes/no.


#5

I get to the bottom, which says END. What would I then do?
