Installing Chef on Ubuntu - opscode-reporting-ctl: command not found


#1

Hello Everyone,

I am following along with the beginner tutorials and I am attempting to stand up a virtualbox Ubuntu 14.04.01 Chef Server.

When I get to the part the asks us to run “sudo opscode-reporting-ctl reconfigure”

I get the following error:

sudo: opscode-reporting-ctl: command not found.

On the server I have ran the following commands:

  1. curl -L https://omnitruck.chef.io/install.sh | sudo bash -s – -P chef-server

  2. sudo nano /etc/opscode/chef-server.rb

Setup the config file in step 2…

  1. sudo chef-server-ctl reconfigure

Any help??


#2

Has anyone experienced this problem?.. Kind of at a loss here. I build the server twice following the basic tutorials and still having the same issue.


#3

Can you provide a link to the tutorial that you are following?


#4

Sure! This is the tutorial:

https://learn.chef.io/install-and-manage-your-own-chef-server/linux/install-chef-server/install-chef-server-using-your-hardware/#step1

I run into trouble on the last part of Step 5 when installing the reporting feature…


#5

Did you run sudo chef-server-ctl install opscode-reporting ? Did it fail?


#6

Ok it looks like it fails…

#7

I believe I fixed one error. I hadn’t removed AppArmor. I have uninstall apparmor and started over, but now I am running into the following error when I run the “chef-server-ctl install opscode-reporting” command:

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

Has anyone encountered this error?


Installing chef-manage via chef-manage-ctl on SLES 12 not possible
#8

I found a work-around. I needed to download the *.deb package for opscode-reporting-ctl from this site and install it that way:

https://downloads.chef.io/reporting/ubuntu/

Now I am able to add the reporting feature and reconfigure it. Hopes this helps someone else.
