Hi Chef users,
I just built my Chef HA cluster and I am a little concerned about the following configuration in chef-server.rb of my Frontend server.
postgresql['external'] = true postgresql['vip'] = '127.0.0.1' postgresql['db_superuser'] = 'chef_pgsql' postgresql['db_superuser_password'] = '****'
The /etc/opscode/chef-server.rb was generated by the way mentioned in the manual https://docs.chef.io/install_server_ha.html.
My question is: do I need to create a VIP for my 3-node backend cluster and replace
postgresql['vip'] = '127.0.0.1' with
postgresql['vip'] = '<vip_of_backend>' ?
As it seems that it is not required to change the default vip value as per the manual mentioned above.
And everything (uploading cookbook etc,.) seemed to work well when I keep the default 127.0.0.1 .
