ChefDK 0.6.0 Released


#1

Hi Chefs,

ChefDK 0.6.0 is now released. You can read the announcement here: https://www.chef.io/blog/2015/05/15/chefdk-0-6-0-released/

The changes in this release are:

  • New chef provision command.
  • Berkshelf is upgraded to 3.2.4
  • Kitchen Vagrant is upgraded to 0.18.0

If you use Chef Provisioning (or if you don’t but want to!), I’d really appreciate if you could give chef provision a try and let us know what you think about it. Once we think we’ve got the APIs right, we’ll add a generator and docs, so any feedback you can offer will help us reach that goal.

Thanks,


Daniel DeLeo

Hi,

With the new chef provision command, how do I pass in bootstrap options
(like target IP, user/password)? I’m trying to figure out how to use it
instead of knife bootstrap.

Regards,
Christine

Hi Daniel,

Cool stuff! Unfortunately I’m not able to test it as the RPM for
RHEL-family is still showing 0.5.1; was there some problem with the RPM
omnibus build?

Look forward to taking it for a spin!

Cheers,

Nathan W

This is an oversight, I only used it to provision VMs in a way that they got self-assigned IPs and totally didn’t think about the case where a machine is provisioned in some other way. I’ll add these options for the next version. If you want to work around the issue, you can set environment variables and then read them with ENV in the cookbook.
