I am looking for a tool to keep track of my servers, we use chef-solo everywhere but its hard to keep track. Any simple tool to keep track of servers like Spacewalk, but then simplified?
I use spacewalk for some servers I admin, but its a bit too bloated for what I want now. But how it does work great. We kickstart servers using chef-solo then register it with a static key with spacewalk.
Hi I am setting up a cluster of machine using chef at offsite locations. If one of these machines was stolen what damage can the attacker do to my chef-server or other notes by having possession of chef-validator.pem ? What other things can they access through chef? Thanks!
So I'm looking for a uniform way to install chef on a number of different servers running different platforms. I know I can use the omnibus installer for this, but I also need a way to lock or otherwise keep the versions consistent across machines.
For example, after I run a knife command of 'knife cookbook upload cookbook_name' from a chef workstation or somewhere, where can I find the history or log about who sent the knife command and when, and what the command is? I need to monitor all the knife behaviors on the chef server side centrally.. How to do that?
