Run list expanding incorrectly


#1

hai

given the same run list for 2 nodes, their run list expansion is not the
same. below, admin1 shows the correct run list expansion, admin2 does
not. any ideas what to look for? fwiw i tried the following:

knife node delete -y admin2.prod.solsticehippies.com
then on admin2, reran chef-client using -j runlist.json to recreate the
same intended run list. same result: incorrect run list expansion.

clients are CentOS 5.7, chef 0.10.4.
server is Ubuntu 11.04, chef 0.10.4

== correct run list expansion ==

[chef-repo]$ knife node show admin1.prod.solsticehippies.com -r
run_list:
role[base]
role[admin-server]
recipe[ec2-ephraid]
recipe[ec2-ebs]
role[dns-server]
role[syslog-ng-server]
role[vpn-server]
role[postfix-server]
recipe[zabbix]
recipe[cleanup]

Hi,

== the base role ==
[chef-repo]$ knife role show base -a env_run_lists | grep prod
prod: role[chef-client], role[dns-client], recipe[s3cmd], recipe[users::ops], recipe[users::dba], recipe[users::user-file-dist], recipe[snmp], recipe[toolbin], recipe[yum::19yum]

Have you confirmed that both of these nodes have a chef_environment = prod?

Cheers,

Steven

aha! thanks –

[chef-repo]$ knife node show admin2.prod.solsticehippies.com | grep ^Env
Environment: _default

will correct…
