Turns out the same group exists in our ldap. The local group needs to
be there at build time and in case of an ldap failure. I will have to
bypass the chef group resource for now and mod the /etc/group file
Note: this isn’t a failure in chef, just the way we have implemented
some groups. L

Subject: [chef] Re: group resource not creating the group
Do you have some directory services (e.g. openldap, NIS, AD) that
already has this group created? If so and if your new node doesn’t have
admin rights, you’re going to get this.

Does anyone know why the group resource would not create the group.
The error keeps coming back saying groupmod cannot find the group. I
would have thought that it would have used groupadd.
Here is the snippet from the recipe…
group “abc123” do
error -> line 55) had an error: Chef::Exceptions::Exec: groupmod
userroot returned 10, expected 0
Error 10 says group does not exist, well I am trying to create it.
What am I doing wrong.??
