- write access is is broken :'(!


#1

Ohai chefs !

I’m currently running chef-server 11.0.11 for month.

I succesfully bootstrapped a server, and decided to stop the process after
the first run. I removed the newly created node and client from UI. I
deleted /etc/chef and /var/chef from the server OS.

Then I tried to rebootstrap again the server… and it fails
Now the client part seems not responding :

knife client create test
ERROR: internal server error
Response: internal service error

Bootstrapping Chef on myserver.mydomain.wtf
Starting Chef Client, version 11.10.4
Creating a new client identity for iprod-test-sa-03 using the validator key.
WARN: Failed to register new client, 4 tries remaining
WARN: Response: HTTP 500 - 500 “Internal Server Error”
[…]
Server Unavailable

The Chef Server is temporarily unavailable
Server Response:

502 Bad Gateway [...]

knife node list is ok, and I still can converge my existing nodes.
I tried chef-server-ctl reindex & restart but I didn’t help.

knife node create
test
[7dc567a]
ERROR: internal server error
Response: internal service error

It seems that any write access to chef causes error :confused: … What can I do ?
I have backups and can rebuild a chef server, but I don’t like this kind of
wierd things happening.

Thanks !

You might have borked the nginx config, or some services may not be running. What was the process by which you “rebootstrapped”? What does chef-server-ctl status show?

Also, you can get full server logs by running chef-server-ctl tail, may reveal some important clues.
