Push jobs - chef 11.0?


#1

Hi All :slight_smile:

I am trying to setup/test chef push jobs but:

chef-server-ctl install
I don’t know that command.
/opt/chef-server/embedded/bin/omnibus-ctl: command (subcommand)

Is “push jobs” a supported/currently developed feature?

Also on https://docs.chef.io/install_push_jobs.html it is also not totally
clear if it is free or not. I understand that based on:
"
This is a premium feature of Chef. Access to premium features is free (up
to 25 nodes) when the Chef server is installed on-premises. For higher node
counts, access is available via subscription. Premium features are
installed from the command line.
"
it is only free for up to 25 nodes per chef server?

Any alternatives to push jobs?

BR,
Rafal.

Hi Rafal,

Push Jobs does not work with Open Source Chef Server 11. You need either
Enterprise Chef or Chef Server 12. It relies on the ACL system that was
open sourced with Chef Sever 12. Also, the install command was
introduced with Chef Server 12, which is why it’s not showing on your
system. So the long story short is that you’ll need to upgrade.

Push Jobs is also open source and not a premium feature. You can use it
for as many nodes as you’d like free of charge. That banner should not
be on that page and I’ll see that it gets removed.

Push Jobs is supported and still being developed against. I’m not sure
about the package question, so I’ll have to defer to one of the other
developers whom I’ll ask to jump in this thread and answer the question.

Thanks,

Mark Mzyk
