No such file or directory @ dir_s_mkdir - /var/chef/nodes>


#1

I am using latest chef client

I am getting this error, solo.rb node.json looks good

my cookbooks are located /var/chef-solo/

ERROR: #<Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory @ dir_s_mkdir - /var/chef/nodes>


#2

You probably need to mkdir /var/chef.


#3

I did that but still I am getting below error:

That's not an error per se, did you pass the node JSON in via -j?


#5

below script alway used to worked chef-solo by default chef-client used to refer to "/etc/chef/" folder where I used to keep node.json and solo.rb, so I am curious why it is not working now? anything changed?

====
#!/bin/bash
source /usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm
rvm use 2.4.0

            /bin/cp solo.rb /etc/chef/. && /bin/cp node.json /etc/chef/.
            cd /var/chef-solo && /bin/tar xvfz /root/.druid/chef-solo.tar.gz
