Installing chef-server on debian


#1

Hello chefs,

I wanted to install chef-server on debian, since you do not provide debian package
I tried the Ubuntu one.

wget https://opscode-omnibus-packages.s3.amazonaws.com/ubuntu/12.04/x86_64/chef-server_11.0.10-1.ubuntu.12.04_amd64.deb

sudo dpkg -i — Smooth here

and on then,

masterkorp@boobierack:~/chef_server$ sudo chef-server-ctl reconfigure
/opt/chef-server/embedded/bin/ruby: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14’ not found (required by /opt/chef-server/embedded/lib/libruby.so.1.9)

I just stopped here, because i cannot be the only one to use debian, How did you guys did it ?

Hi,

I did hit the same ‘obstacle’. The glib on debian wheezy is not new
enough. But whith wheezy fixed as the main distribution[1], adding a
sources.list-entry for jessy [2] and then updating glib from jessy [3],
it worked.

[1] Put in /etc/apt/apt.conf (for example):
APT::Default-Release “wheezy”;

[2] Put in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/debian-jessie.list:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie main
deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie main

[3] On a root-console (or with sudo):
apt-get install libc6/jessy
or was it
apt-get install libc6/testing
?

Its testing.

Now i have another problem, rabbitmq starts and here is a log,
2014-01-21_14:39:41.08940 – message delivery logic ready
2014-01-21_14:39:41.08953 starting error log relay …done

root@boobierack:/home/masterkorp/chef_server# chef-server-ctl start
ok: run: rabbitmq: (pid 21252) 2393s

Is it supposed to be just this ??

Also nmap says there is nothing on 4000, as well as knife gets a connection refused.

There is nothing on /var/log/chef-server (or /var/log/chef) besides the rabbitmq service.

Any ideas how i can approach this ?

Ok right after this,

I came to the solution that the init q command wasn’t doing anything.

/opt/chef-server/embedded/bin/runsvdir-start

Runing this manually, and then chef-server-ctl reconfigure ends up in a successful run.

root@boobierack:/home/masterkorp# chef-server-ctl start
ok: run: bookshelf: (pid 22935) 99s
ok: run: chef-expander: (pid 22892) 101s
ok: run: chef-server-webui: (pid 23121) 90s
ok: run: chef-solr: (pid 22839) 102s
ok: run: erchef: (pid 23296) 86s
ok: run: nginx: (pid 23487) 2s
ok: run: postgresql: (pid 22743) 109s
ok: run: rabbitmq: (pid 21252) 2930s

Everything up !

To solve the runsvdir-start, either reboot on send init 6.

We are successfully running the Ubuntu 11.04 version on Debian Wheezy.
