I have the following requirement and would like your advise.
Role A creates/configures Node A
Role B creates/configures Node B
As part of Role A, i.e. within its recipe/cookbook, I am generating a server certificate (a file in some directory, on Node A). This certificate content is dynamic i.e I can’t know beforehand what its contents will be.
Now, as part of creating/configuring Node B, I need to import the certificate/file created in Node A.
How do I achieve this copy-file-from-NodeA-and-place-it-into-NodeB activity as part of running RoleB cookbooks/recipes.
Not a requirement
Although it likely makes sense, I DO NOT have a requirement that if the file changes on Node A, that Node B somehow gets notified. In this instance, I simply want to copy the file from Node A to Node B without knowing the contents beforehand (i.e. cant use a template)
Node B will be built immediately after Node A has completed.
FTP service is not enabled on Node A, but I can think of enabling it if that is required as a possible solution.
Thanks for the help.
