NoMethodError for LWRP within a ruby_block?


#1

Hiya,

How do I make an LWRP that I created available in a recipe within a ruby_block?
It’s not working for me.

Afaict, the recipe code needs to execute during the convergence phase of the
chef-client run. In my case, the code needs to (1) first start mysql, (2) wait
for mysql to complete its startup (wait for innodb recovery to complete) and (3)
then query a value from a table. (4) And then do another action depending on the
value returned.

I tried doing the above outside a ruby_block my first time through, then
realized #3 was executing before #2 had completed. IOW #3 was executing at the
compile phase. So now I’m trying to put all of this into a ruby_block, but the
call to my LWRP is failing. (Is using a ruby_block for this the right answer?)

The LWRP lives in ‘cloner-db-svc’ cookbook. The cookbook::recipe that calls it
is ‘cloner::grants’. The cloner cookbook depends on cloner-db-svc. When the code
runs outside of a ruby_block, the recipe finds the LWRP method just fine, but
the behavior I need doesn’t occur.

::Chef::Recipe.send(:include, ::Cloner::Chef::DbSvc::Helper)

ruby_block “do stuff” do
block do
quux_ip = search(:node, ‘roles:quux’).map {|server| server[‘ipaddress’] }.join(",")

current_ip = %x( mysql --skip-column-names -hlocalhost -uroot -p#{cli_password} -e “SELECT Host FROM mysql.user WHERE User=‘cloner_admin’” )

if current_ip.empty?
  Chef::Log.debug("HIGGS-BOSON: current_ip is empty, applying grants.")
  cloner_admin_pass = ::Cloner::Chef::DbSvc::Helper.fetchsecret( "secrets", "#{node['cloner']['environment']}", "cloner_admin_pass" )

Hi Callen,

When inside a ruby_block the chef DSL doesn’t work. You need to use pure
ruby. Here is an example of how you can execute a resource from a
ruby_block. The cookbook is called ‘test’ and the lwrp is called ‘mine’.

ruby_block ‘dd’ do
block do
mine = Chef::Resource::TestMine.new(‘bb’, run_context)
mine.run_action(:create)
end
action :create
end

You will need something like the following. The lwrp name is turned into
camel case.

mysqlacl = Chef::Resource::ClonerDbSvcMysqlacl(“mysqlgrants”, run_context)
mysqlacl.ipv4_address(quux_ip)
Š

mysqlacl.run_action(:create_acl)

Regarding whether its the right thing to do, I try to avoid them if
possible. This is because it is difficult to make assertions about the
actions executed within a ruby_block using chefspec (unit testing for
chef).

Thanks,

Brian

Thanks for the response. I forgot chef DSL isn’t available within a ruby_block.
Basically, I’m trying to get my recipe actions executing in the right order,
using the chef tools as I understand them so far. I’ll probably try run_context
today.

Given my cookbook, the run order I desire is:

  1. Start mysql
  2. Wait for innodb recovery to complete (i.e. wait for mysql to respond to queries).
  3. Query a value from mysql
  4. Take action on that value using my LWRP

But the run order that actually happened before I tried putting 3 and 4 into
a ruby_block was:

  1. Query a value from mysql (got executed at compile phase)
  2. Take action on that value using my LWRP (got executed at compile phase)
  3. Start mysql (got executed at convergence phase)
  4. Wait for innodb recovery to complete (i.e. wait for mysql to respond to queries). (got executed at convergence phase)

Items executing at compile phase rather than convergence phase is working
against me, I feel. I’ll keep trying.

thx,
kallen

If your able to now get access to your LWRP and hitting the problem of things not running in
the converge, have a look at converge_by
http://docs.opscode.com/lwrp_custom_provider_ruby.html#converge-by

Here’s an example from my app cookbook https://gist.github.com/imlucas/7812280
