I have a query regarding CHEF; please suggest if have any thought about this.
As part of tech remediation, we are migrating all RHEL5 machines to RHEL7.
This activity needs to be performed on thousands of servers.
Migration activity will commonly have; package install, folder create, mount create, user access, etc.
My requirement is to check whether the recipe performed the action correctly.
For e.g. if we have a folder creation recipe, once it gets converged to the target node; how can we programmatically confirm that the folder was created with the correct name, location, owner, group, permission.
I want to check this for all types of resources on the target node.
PS: As per my understanding chefSpec, Kitchen, InSpec does not exactly fit my requirement as i need to check on the actual target host.
