Using remote_file issue with file://


#1

Dear all,

the following snippet doesn’t seem to work properly:

default[:aem][:download_url] = ‘file:///my/path/to/my/file.jar’

remote_jar_name = "aem-quickstart-#{node[:aem][:version]}.jar"
remote_file “#{Chef::Config[:file_cache_path]}/#{remote_jar_name}” do
source "#{vars[:download_url]}"
mode "0755"
action :create_if_missing
end

Can you please advice.

Moreover when I use a http://adress behind an authenticated form I can’t
find the way to provide the username password. This issue
https://tickets.opscode.com/browse/CHEF-3786 seems to provide this
functionality but I can’t find how to use it.

Thanks in advance,
Kiril

What do you mean “doesn’t work properly”? What error do you get?

DId you try http://user:password@server.example.com/ ?

Hello Julien,

DId you try http://user:password@server.example.
http://user:password@server.example.com/

This wroked well thanks a lot.

However I am still having an issue when prefixing with file:/// instead of
an http.

See my error below:
I am using chef version:
09:06 $ chef --v
Chef Development Kit Version: 0.6.2
chef-client version: 12.3.0
berks version: 3.2.4
kitchen version: 1.4.0

If i put this in my browser :
file:///home/kiril/Documents/cq5.6-adv-dev-usb-2013-02-21/Distribution/CQ5/license.properties
I get the file i need. So i cannot understand why chef doesn’t reach it.
The documentation says that file http & https are supported.

Thanks in advance,
Kiril

Does the user account chef is running as have access to the file share you
are connecting to?

I am using chef on my local machine and trying to access a local folder
under my home. Could it be that chef isn’t able to read my home folder?

That totally depends on what user account you are running Chef as. Chef will have the rights of the account it runs as. If that account doesn’t have rights to your home directory or that file, then it won’t be able to open it to read/copy the content to your new file location.
