Still confused about knife search recipe vs. recipes


#1

Hi! I don’t understand this and I want to cry . . . why isn’t knife
search returning anything here:

[gmatz@iad-qac1-admin101 iheart-chef]$ knife search node
’recipes:attivio::clustered’
0 items found

When the recipe attivio::clustered is in the run list (see below)? It
seems that not all of my RunList is getting expanded in Recipes . . . Is
that right? I thought that I should see all of the recipes applied to the
node, as well as the expanded list of recipes from roles.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Did you run Chef Client after adding attivio::clustered to your run list?

This is one of the shortcomings of the Node object – at present, it
contains both “desired state” and “current state” information, all
intermingled together. The “run_list” contains desired state, but
"recipes" and “roles” contain current state. Yes, we have plans to
change this in the future.
