Error in mysql cookbook


#1

Hi all,

I am trying to deploy openstack using openstack-chef-repo (https://github.com/stackforge/openstack-chef-repo). I am using fedora 19 and here is the error I am getting:

================================================================================
Recipe Compile Error in /var/chef/cache/cookbooks/openstack-ops-database/recipes/server.rb

ArgumentError

Bad string format template[], you must have a string like resource_type[name]!

Cookbook Trace:

/var/chef/cache/cookbooks/openstack-ops-database/recipes/mysql-server.rb:50:in from_file' /var/chef/cache/cookbooks/openstack-ops-database/recipes/server.rb:22:infrom_file’

Relevant File Content:

/var/chef/cache/cookbooks/openstack-ops-database/recipes/mysql-server.rb:

43: case node[‘platform_family’]
44: when 'debian’
45: mycnf_template = '/etc/mysql/my.cnf’
46: when 'rhel’
47: mycnf_template = 'final-my.cnf’
48: end
49:
50>> r = resources(“template[#{mycnf_template}]”)
51: r.notifies_immediately(:restart, ‘service[mysql]’)
52:
53: mysql_connection_info = {
54: host: ‘localhost’,
55: username: ‘root’,
56: password: node[‘mysql’][‘server_root_password’]
57: }
58:
59: mysql_database ‘FLUSH PRIVILEGES’ do

Now, I talked to people on IRC and apparently not all cookbooks work with Fedora. I don’t plan to put Fedora in production, we would be using RHEL there, I tried it only for testing purposes. But I am still interested to know, what is causing this error? I mean I have template defined, the why isn’t the cookbook able to find it? Isn’t Fedora a part of RHEL family anymore?

Thanks,

As I said on IRC, the issue is just that the code in the OpenStack recipe only has conditions for ‘debian’ and ‘rhel’ families. This means on Fedora that variable ends up being nil, which when interpolated as a string is ‘’.

I’m interested in understanding why is Fedora not a part of the ‘rhel’ os family.

Fedora has made numerous policy decisions over the past few years to make them highly incompatible with RHEL-ish OSes. As a shining topical example, Fedora no longer ships “real” MySQL, they ship MariaDB instead.

The “rhel” platform_family was initially supposed to be recompiled
redhat enterprise linux clones (hence ‘rhel’ and not ‘redhat’) that are
mostly compatible in all their versions of things and use the same
platform_version numbering scheme – so RHEL, CentOS, Scientific Linux
and Oracle. Later ‘amazon’ snuck in there even though they upgrade
all kinds of RPMs and use version numbers like “2013.09”, which wasn’t
the original intent since ‘amazon’ is not rhel – ‘fedora’ is also not
’rhel’ either. We can add fedora to the rhel platform_family but it
only sorta kicks the can down the road a bit and then this kind of
thing breaks:

case platform_family
when "rhel"
if platform_version.to_i == 6
do_something_for_rhel6
else
do_something_for_rhel5
end
end

#6

Over in the Chef/OpenStack community we’ve dropped support for Fedora
because no one was maintaining support for it. The users of these
cookbooks are primarily using Ubuntu 12.04, RHEL 6 and SLES 11.3.
You’re welcome to join us in #openstack-chef on irc.freenode.net or on
our mailing list http://groups.google.com/group/opscode-chef-openstack
to discuss it further.
