I am setting up a local Chef environment to learn Chef.
I have a Ubuntu 12.04 chef server, a Ubuntu 12.04 node and a Windows 2008
node. All virtual in VMWare Fusion.
My client is a Mac where also Fusion is installed.
Server is working. Client is working. Bootstrapping the Windows node works
Problem is bootstrapping the Ubuntu node.
I use knife bootstrap -x -P
–sudo --use-sudo-password -V
The only response i get is "Bootstrapping Chef on ". Nothing
Running top on the node doesn’t tell me anything.
Protocol analyzer tells me there is an SSH key exchange, then the node does
a DNS lookup for my client which obviously ends in a "no such name"
from the DNS server.
Does my client need to be resolvable for the bootstrap to work?
Can someone point me to a troubleshooting guide for this issue?
