Search not working with knife


#1

Search is not working with knife.
However, it does work from the OpsCode management console.

liam@gavilan:~/Documents/Development/chef-repo$ knife node show mongo1
Node Name: mongo1
Environment: _default
FQDN:
IP:
Run List: recipe[bti_mongo]
Roles:
Recipes:
Platform:
Tags:

liam@gavilan:~/Documents/Development/chef-repo$ knife search node 'mongo1’
0 items found

liam@gavilan:~/Documents/Development/chef-repo$ knife search node ''
0 items found

Any idea why that doesn’t find the node?

A blank query isn’t valid, you need to search for ‘fqdn:mongo1’ or ‘name:mongo1’

If you want to search for all nodes, you can do “knife search node ‘:’”.

Just FYI, there’s a minor enhancement in Chef 11’s knife where a query that does not contain a colon character gets expanded into a search across fqdn, IP address, roles, and a few other attributes:
