Repetitive Tasks


#1

Hi,

I have a scenario where I am trying to create cluster of servers a.k.a nodes on a box provisioned by Chef, so the structure of the servers nodes are typically same, there will be slight modification to the server configuration files that are deployed.

I just did server_nodes.each do |x,y| { all my chef tasks }, i see some discrepancies when running my chef tasks, e.g. one of my chef task will create a template for one sever node it creates correctly for other it complains the directory does not exist as when i checked the node it did not have the directory … all is well when i run as single node. Does chef has any best practice or the way to do for these kind of scenarios ?

Regards,
Kamesh

Hi kamesh,

Are you getting these erro while executing the chef dry run [chef-client –W]
Try executing chef-actual run, in that case it should create the missing directories.

Let me know if that helps.

Cheers!!
