Welcome to OSCON 2011!
This repository is used in the Getting Started with Chef tutorial.
Prior to this tutorial, you should have followed the installation instructions posted on the tutorial web page on the OSCON site, or the instructions emailed to you by O'Reilly conference organizers. If not, don't worry, a printed copy is available when you walk in the door, and the instructions are included in the INSTALL.md file in this repository.
You should be ready for the hands on portions of the tutorial with:
- Ruby and Chef installed on your local workstation.
- Your user private key file (USER.pem).
- An organization created in the Opscode Hosted Chef server.
- The organization validation client private key file (ORGNAME-validator.pem)
- Knife configuration (knife.rb)
You can download your user private key, organization validation key and knife configuration file from Opscode Hosted Chef. Put the files in .chef of this repository.
Perform the following commands to upload everything in the repository to the Opscode Hosted Chef server.
knife cookbook upload -a knife role from file base.rb knife data bag create users knife data bag from file users luke.json knife data bag from file users leia.json
This is covered during the tutorial as well.
Configure a Node
You can configure a new node with
knife bootstrap by using one of the commands below.
# Use -Ppassword or -i ~/.ssh/ssh-private-key-for-you # Ubuntu: knife bootstrap $IPADDRESS -r 'role[base]' knife bootstrap $IPADDRESS -r 'role[base]' -x ubuntu --sudo # Debian 6: knife bootstrap $IPADDRESS -r 'role[base]' -x root knife bootstrap $IPADDRESS -r 'role[base]' -x username --sudo # CentOS 5.x: knife bootstrap $IPADDRESS -r 'role[base]' -d centos5-gems knife bootstrap $IPADDRESS -r 'role[base]' -d centos5-gems -x username --sudo # Scientific Linux 6.x: knife bootstrap $IPADDRESS -r 'role[base]' -d scientific6-gems knife bootstrap $IPADDRESS -r 'role[base]' -d scientific6-gems -x username --sudo
For example, on my Ubuntu 10.04 VMware Fusion machine (Ubuntu 10.04):
knife bootstrap 172.16.156.130 -r 'role[base]' -x jtimberman --sudo -Poscon2011
knife bootstrap -h for more options, or
knife help bootstrap for the man page.
