RabbitMQ upgraded, lost configuration


#1

Hi,

I’m using Chef 0.9.8 on CentOS 5 i386.
It looks like EPEL released today a new version of rabbitmq. I’ve
applied the upgrade, but after this Chef Server stopped working.
I’ve fixed this based on: http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Chef+Indexer

However, this happened second time for me - when upgrading rabbitmq,
configuration is lost.
Is it possible somehow to retain rabbitmq configuration?

Are there any steps required to be done after rabbitmq re-configuration?
Like services restart/manual indexing?

Thanks,

I moved my rabbitmq (and solr, and all the other chef component
configs) into the chef::server recipe. If they are overwritten by EPEL
, or whatever, the recipe will replace them with the right thing. If
things too badm hopefully a run of chef-solo will repair the server.
