Install Chef Server on Suse Linux Enterprise 11

Hi Folks!

Today I dealt with a problem… and I found a solution because Chef is a great tool!

At moment there is not an RPM for Suse Linux available from the official website, but this does not matter 🙂

Problem: Install Chef Server, Chefdk, Chef-manage into a Suse Linux Enterprise 11 virtual machine without installing the rpm packages of RHEL systems.

This is what you can do:

  1. Dowload the following packages:
    • chef-server-core-12.8.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm,
    • chefdk-0.16.28-1.el6.x86_64.rpm,
    • chef-manage-2.4.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
  2. Extract all stuff from RPM with:
    • rpm2cpio  chef-manage-2.4.1-1.el6.x86_64.rpm   | cpio -idmv

  3. Move content of the extraction to the correct folders: /opt/{chef,chef-manage,opscoode}
  4. Set PATH=”/opt/opscode/bin:/opt/chefdk/bin/:/data/opt/chef-manage/bin:$PATH” in your profile login script
  5. chef-server-ctl reconfigure
  6. chef-manage-ctl reconfigure
  7. again chef-server-ctl reconfigure

At the end all services are up and running
