Up and Running with Chef Manage - Web UI Console

So to get the full chef stack running on Vagrant, you have to follow the steps below

  • The base precise64 image is Ubuntu 12.02 make sure you download the correct Chef installer
  • Increase the memory of the Vagrant machine, I made it 2GB and this made it work fairly quickly.
    •   config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb|
    •      vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", "2048"]
    •   end
  • When adding the opcode manage make sure you allow a relevant port to be forwarded
    • I added a port forward of 4443 to 4443.
    • Edit /etc/opscode-manage/manage.rd and add the line
      • public_port 4443
  • Log into the interface on
