Chef- server setup -not working properly


#1

Hi,

     I am using open source chef server,for a past few days my server setup is not working it shows error when i use knife commnand like this:

ERROR: Server returned error for https://mychefserver.example.com/cookbooks?num_versions=all, retrying 1/5 in 4s
ERROR: Server returned error for https://mychefserver.example.com/cookbooks?num_versions=all, retrying 2/5 in 6s
ERROR: Server returned error for https://mychefserver.example.com/cookbooks?num_versions=all, retrying 3/5 in 10s
ERROR: Server returned error for https://mychefserver.example.com/cookbooks?num_versions=all, retrying 4/5 in 17s
ERROR: Server returned error for https://mychefserver.example.com/cookbooks?num_versions=all, retrying 5/5 in 62s
ERROR: bad gateway
Response:

502 Bad Gateway

502 Bad Gateway


nginx/1.4.4

As i ve checked it shows some of a chef-server-ctl services are down so again i up that and use it again services goes down also beam and epmd files are deleting automatically .So i change a instance and put a new server setup ,it works first but after one day again showing a same error,but all services are up only.

So where is the problem,instance or server setup ?anybody ve ideas?

Thanks,
Indra

It looks like there is something wrong with the configuration. Do you have
a domain example.com in your local network ? If not then you need to check
if you have given a right FDQN [1] for your chef server.

run chef-server-ctl tail to view the server error logs which should have more information. Are you running any automated processes (like chef-client) on the server that could be modifying the server configuration?
