How to create a node


#1

Hi All,

I have a private chef-server (OS:SLES11 SP1)
Am trying to create nodes,the steps which am following are mentioned below:

I don’t have a bootstrap script for SLES hence am doing all the steps
manually

1)install rubygems,rubygem-chef
2)mkdir -p /etc/chef
3)knife configure client ./
4)copy validation.pem from server to /etc/chef
5)Edit the server_url in client.rb
6)run chef-client(this should register the node)
7)add recipe to the node
8)On running the chef-client again these recipies will run

Issue:

When i do a “knife node list” i get the node name in the result but when i
do "knife search node name :‘NAME OF THE NODE’ "

I don’t get this node.

Kindly suggest am i missing some step here?


Thanks

My chef-client run fine,its successful

Contents of client.rb are:

log_level :info
log_location STDOUT
chef_server_url 'http://172.18.4.29:4000
validation_client_name ‘chef-validator’

issue is not with chef-client run ,this node is shown in knife node list
but not searchable with knife search node name
