CLIs: chef-manage-ctl & opscode-manage-ctl


I am confused about the two CLIs

  • chef-manage-ctl
  • opscode-manage-ctl

what are the differences? Thanks

opscode-manage became chef-manage after the first few releases because it was just legacy config in the build system that needed to be fixed. This was done around the same time as Manage itself got the new logo and whatnot if I remember correctly.

opscode-manage-ctl became chef-manage-ctl starting with Chef Manage 2.0. An alias to opscode-manage-ctl still exists in the current version. This command lets you control the services and configuration of Chef Manage.

chef-server-ctl is used for managing the services and configuration of the Chef Server.
