[RESOLVED] Why this 'kitchen setup' failed? 'www.chef.io' is reachable from the guest OS


#1

Hi all,

I am following the chapter 6 of the book ‘Learning Chef’ by Mischa Taylor
and Seth Vargo.

First I ran this command kitchen init --create-gemfile to create a set of
chef files.

Then I modified the .kitchen.yml to contain these lines


driver:
name: vagrant

provisioner:
name: chef_solo

platforms:

  • name: centos65
    driver:
    box: learningchef/centos65
    box_url: learningchef/centos65

suites:

  • name: default
    run_list:
    attributes:

After I created the instance, I ran chef setup and I got these output and
error messages:

$ kitchen setup default-centos65

Look like chef team has fixed the issue. I can run kitchen setup
default-centos65 without problem today

I have seen that before. I have always attributed it to internet
connectivity issues. Looks like you solved it so there you go.

Hi,

I’m still having the issue. I’m trying to learn with Test-Kitchen and this error while working with examples in Chapter-9 gets annoying… I had to destroy instances and restart my computer multiple times, before I could get this to work.

Kindly let me know, if there is any patches or something for this?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi - that is always the problem with books… they are usually out of date by the time they are published.

You would do yourself good by having a public github repository and linking people to your code where you’re having issues at… honestly going the adhoc way in which this topic has gone so far is obviously not working well.

Hi,

Are you running kitchen behind the proxy? This usually happens if you are behind proxy and the proxy configurations are not done for port 443.
