Nodes do not have permissions to bootstrap other nodes on ec2


#1

Hi,

I am very serious issue with chef an bootstrapping a node from a
monitoring server. The monitoring server was bootstrapped as well.
In the hosted hosted web UI I have gave permissions to the monitoring
node for everything yet I get the below error. This node will handle
failover.

I get the below error when bootstrapping.

ec2-23-20-69-202.compute-1.amazonaws.com 15 gems installed

Here is my knife file.

validation_key "/etc/chef/validation.pem"

cache_type 'BasicFile’
cache_options( :path => “/home/ubuntu/.chef/checksums” )
cookbook_path [ “/home/ubuntu/workspace/MyCHEF/chef-repo/cookbooks” ]
knife[:aws_access_key_id] = "xxxxxx"
knife[:aws_secret_access_key] = “xxxxxxxxxxxx”

The node has ALL permissions checked. What else is there to do?

Thanks

What’s the node name of the instance you are bootstrapping? Does that client ( node name) already exist on your chef server?

‘knife client show your.node.name

Not anywhere that I can double check but I think that’s saying there is a client registered already with that name. Node names need to be unique. Can u remove the client an try again? Knife client delete nodeNAme . Then try again
