Need help in on premise chef server, workstation and node setup


#1

Hi All,
Could please guide me to a reference link for setting up chef server(ubuntu
12.04), workstation(Win7) and node(2008r2) setup.

Regards,
Sakhamuri.

I am going to recommend you get chefDK (from opscode/chef) for your
workstation.
The server needs to happen first. Its fairly strait forward. Google will be
your friend here.
Onces it up, youll get obtaining some validation keys from it, youll need
them on your workstation, aswell as for the nodes.
Setting up a node is known as “bootstrapping” which should also help in
your googling.

Hi Kenneth,

I have setup on premises server. I’m missing the validation keys from
/etc/chef-server/ I can see only a json file. How can I get client.pem and
1 more thing when I browser to http://:443. Its not showing the login
page instead its showing the chefapi page and wants me to redirect to
management console of opscode.

Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Sakhamuri.

I didn’t actually set ours up. But I believe the client.pem is obtained
when your generate a new user on the server (using the gui)

Are you using Chef Server 12 or open-source server 11?

For windows ChefDK be sure to read yesterday’s blog post on setting profile.

Cheers,

Peter

It seems you’re installing chef12, so best idea would be to follow This:
http://docs.getchef.com/install_server.html#standalone

You’ll found all the commands to create an organization and a validation
user.
