I’m trying to run a chef-server on a vagrant VM for local development. Not
very worried about SSL working properly as long as I can use it.
Still, apart from receiving a warning of a name mismatch, what else will
break in that case?

You need to have a CN that matches the FQDN of your chef-server for
SSL to work properly.

that is what happens for me, yes.
if i connect to http://chef-app01.ops.sub.domain (default port 80), it
redirects me to https://chef-app01.ops (default port 443), which doesn’t
exist… but if i connect directly to https://chef-app01.ops.sub.domain, it
it would be great if it didn’t break on redirect, but I don’t know where the
code is to fix that…

Are you saying that the redirection only occurs if I hit http, not https?
That would be helpful.

A more normal redirect pattern I have seen is to save the host name from
the request parameter and simply change the scheme from http to https…
here’s how we do it on an F5:
I’m not sure off hand what the proper syntax is for nginx or apache, but
it should be straightforward

Out of curiosity, why redirect in the first place?

It’s a reasonable default for most situations – the alternative is to use
the IP Address, which is actively icky as well.

Subject: [chef] chef-server on a VM
Why does the omnibus chef-server deb not work by default on a VM?
I’m following http://docs.opscode.com/chef/install_server_scenario_vm.html
but at the end, if I hit the webserver on port 80 it redirects me to the
VM’s hostname, which is obviously not accessible from outside of the VM
unless I edit my hostsfile.
I’m wondering why it’s set like that by default; it seems like an
anti-pattern. Also, how do I change this behaviour?
Other than that, the omnibus package is a breeze to install. Fantastic
