Robin discusses using a Chef server to provide additional functionality to your recipes. A Chef Server indexes pieces of policy that are uploaded.
- [Instructor] Now that we've actually gone through…the process of learning a little bit about how Chef…can directly configure the state of a server,…we would like to talk about distributing your cookbooks…using a Chef server.…The Chef server itself is going to be a hub…for all of our policy,…for any various managed nodes we might use.…What we mean is how would you actually…create more web servers?…How would you distribute this information,…your Apache cookbook, to many different servers…that you might want to run your application code?…We can use a Chef server to do this,…or there's many other ways…to accomplish the same task.…
For example, using Chef to manage an additional web server,…I would have to create a new server first.…We call this process provisioning a new node.…Now, nodes can be created in many different ways.…In this class, I'm creating it with Vagrant and VirtualBox.…Once you've create the new server,…we then need to install Chef on it,…transfer it the Apache cookbook,…and run the Chef client to apply its default recipe.…
