Why will knife ec2 not work?


#1

Despite installing gem install knife-ec2 I cannot use knife with chef 11.

How does one get knife ec2 to work on ubuntu 12.04?

knife ec2 server create -r “role[monitor_server]” -N
aws-monitor_server-sydney-development-1 --region ap-southeast-2 -Z
ap-southeast-2b -I ami-e2ba2cd8 --flavor m1.small -G monitor -x ubuntu -E
development -S aws_development_sydney -i
/home/ubuntu/.ec2/aws_development_sydney.pem
FATAL: Cannot find sub command for: 'ec2 server create -r
role[monitor_server] -N aws-monitor_server-sydney-development-1 --region
ap-southeast-2 -Z ap-southeast-2b -I ami-e2ba2cd8 --flavor m1.small -G
monitor -x ubuntu -E development -S aws_development_sydney -i
/home/ubuntu/.ec2/aws_development.pem’
The ec2 commands were moved to plugins in Chef 0.10
You can install the plugin with `(sudo) gem install knife-ec2

Thanks

I don’t want to say the obvious - but do you have the knife-ec2 gem
installed?

gem list knife-ec2
(if nothing)
gem install knife-ec2

Do you have multiple versions of chef installed? It might help to uninstall
the older versions of chef.

Any sort of RVM or RBENV setup installed?

Your log message makes it seems like knife is unable to find/see the the
knife-ec2 gem -maybe gist us the output from gem list, gem -v and ruby -v

If you have installed knife-ec2 as part of a bundle install you’ll need to run bundle exec knife ec2 server create ...
