Mcollective with chef


#1

hi,

I am trying to integrate mcollective with chef.

While trying to install , want to know equivalent plugin for chef server
and client

puppet uses :
yum install mcollective-puppet-client for server

yum install mcollective-puppet-agent for agent

thanks,
K.Gopalakrishnan

There aren’t any. You’d have to write 'em, if they are even useful. AFAIK.


maybe of some use to you. It looks like you have to dump some data out
for mcollective to parse.

cheers,

That would actually be for the client…

yum install mcollective-puppet-agent for agent

…and that for the server.

Anyway, you might want to check out the MCollective cookbook (
https://supermarket.getchef.com/cookbooks/mcollective ), which includes a
very basic agent and application for controlling the chef-client service.
I’ve never packaged them as yum/deb because I deployed mcollective with
Chef anyway.

If you’ve read what the MCollective agent/application for Puppet can do,
you’ll probably be a little disappointed with the current state of the Chef
one, as it hasn’t had got a lot of attention this year.

I think the answer he’s looking for may simply be “knife.” Knife handles much of mcollective’s most useful functionality in a Puppet environment natively.

thanks guys for the response.

finally i got push jobs working with my setup and able to push jobs using
knife.

Anyhow,i have i am experimenting mcollective via cookbooks,I will share the
details once it got success.

knife job start command [node1,node2…nodex] - used to execute job to all
listed nodes.

Please inform if anyway we can group all nodes with common name or with
environment with knife job start command
