If you received error uploading cookbook to chef server:
knife cookbook upload rundeck
ERROR: Cookbook rundeck depends on cookbooks which are not currently
ERROR: being uploaded and cannot be found on the server.
ERROR: The missing cookbook(s) are: 'java' version '>= 0.0.0', 'yum' version '>= 0.0.0', 'apt' version '>= 0.0.0', 'supervisor' version '>= 0.0.0', 'database' version '>= 0.0.0', 'mysql2_chef_gem' version '~> 1.0.2', 'mysqld' version '~> 1.0.3'
You need use berkshelf tool which bundled with the chefdk package.
It's really easy to use and worth learning. It's designed to work like the gem bundler tool.
└── myCookbook ├── Berksfile <-- Berkshelf configuration file ├── Berksfile.lock <-- Lock file generated by Berkshelf ├── metadata.rb ├── README.md └── recipes └── default.rb
The "source" directive tells berkshelf where to download dependencies from. The "metadata" directive tells berkshelf to take dependencies from the cookbook metadata.
The "install" command will download the cookbook dependencies (Cached under ~/.berkshelf)
