Installing and configuring chef into docker container

Hi, all

I’m trying to dockerize chef-server with CentOS 7. But I am getting

Recipe Compile Error in /var/opt/opscode/local-mode-cache/cookbooks/private-chef/recipes/default.rb

Cannot find a resource for component_runit_supervisor on centos version 7.4.1708

Although I installed chef-server , runit , and supervisor, I getting same error message.

Could anyone help me out on this.

here’s my Dockerfile

We super duper don’t support Chef Server inside Docker. You could definitely do it, but it wouldn’t be with the omnibus installers we release. Notably RabbitMQ really doesn’t like being inside a container. If you want to do this, you’ll have to (probably) build all the subcomponents yourself in a way that is more Docker-friendly.

(For those that want to dig deeper, RabbitMQ is very sensitive to hostname issues which Docker tends to screw up. There is nothing inherently impossible about Chef Server in Docker, it’s just a largely unexplored area with no docs that I know of and will probably not work with the defaults shipped in our installers)
