Hi to all,
i have been searching for a way to make a recipe that is being run on one
node’s runlist trigger a recipe on another node/role runlist.
The closest thing to what I want to accomplish, according to opscode
documentation, is to “search” for all the nodes of a specific role, for
example, all nodes of role apache, and based on the nodes found execute what we
want, using an array with all of the nodenames.
The problem rises when, for example, continuing the new node configuration
requires that the other node(the one that uses the search method and creates
the array of nodes) must first be configured in order to continue the new node
That could be accomplished either by creating a recipe that would execute
something on another node immediately (something like notify immediately
some_recipe on_another_node), or by executing immediately the runlist of the
other node before the completion of the running runlist of the new node and
returning the exit status so that it could continue configuration.
Of course there could be also more ways to do this.
But the question is: is anything like this possible? ChefServer version:10.12.0
