Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

AIX Cookbook

This cookbook contains useful resources for using Chef with AIX systems.

Supported Platforms

  • AIX 6.1
  • AIX 7.1

Usage

This cookbook has no recipes.

Resources

inittab

Manage the inittab entries. Example:

aix_inittab 'my-awesome-aix-daemon' do
  runlevel '2'
  processaction 'once'
  command '/opt/mycompany/libexec/mydaemon -d > /dev/console 2>&1'
  action :install
end

Parameters:

  • runlevel - the runlevel of the inittab entry
  • processaction - the action of the process (e.g. "once", "boot", etc.)
  • command - the command to run

subserver

Manage the services started by inetd by editing /etc/inetd.conf. Example:

aix_subserver 'tftp' do
  protocol 'udp'
  action :disable
end

Parameters:

  • servicename - name of the service as it appears in the first field of /etc/inetd.conf
  • type - type of service. Valid values: dgram stream sunrpc_udp sunrpc_tcp
  • protocol - protocol of service. Valid values: tcp udp tcp6 udp6
  • wait - blocking, nonblocking, or SRC. Valid values: wait nowait SRC
  • user - user to the run the service under. Default: root
  • program - program to run (typically specified by full path)
  • args - program, with arguments

tcpservice

Manage the services started by /etc/rc.tcpip. Example:

aix_tcpservice 'xntpd' do
  action :enabled
end

Parameters:

  • immediate (optional) - whether to start/stop the TCP/IP service immediately by contacting the SRC. It's much better to declaratively specify this separately using the built-in service resource in Chef.

toolboxpackage

To install packages from the IBM AIX Toolbox for Linux off the IBM FTP site. Example:

aix_toolboxpackage "a2ps" do
  action :install
end

Parameters:

  • base_url (optional) - the base URL to use to retrieve the package. If you are behind a firewall or your AIX system doesn't have access to the Internet, you can override this to an HTTP/FTP server where you have stored the RPMs.

chdev

Change any AIX device attribute. Example:

aix_chdev "sys0" do
  attributes(:maxuproc => 1026, ncargs: => 1024)
  need_reboot false
  action :update
end

aix_chdev "fcs0" do
  attributes(:num_cmd_elems => 200, :max_xfer_size => "0x800000")
  need_reboot true
  action :update
end

aix_chdev "ent0" do
  attributes(:poll_uplin => "yes")
  need_reboot true
  action :update
end

Parameters:

  • need_reboot (optional) - Add -P to the chdev command if device is busy

no

Change any AIX no (network) tunables. Example:

aix_no "changing no tunables" do
  tunables(:udp_recv_perf => 0, :udprecvspace => 42083, :psetimers => 23)
  set_default 
  action :update
end

aix_no "reseting no tunables" do
  tunables(:udp_recv_perf => 0, :udprecvspace => 0)
  set_default false
  action :reset
end

aix_no "reseting all no tunables" do
  action: reset_all
end

aix_no "reseting all no tunables reboot needed" do
  action: reset_all_with_reboot
end

Parameters:

  • set_default (optional) (default true) - All change are persistant to reboot (/etc/tunables/nextboot)
  • bootlist (optional) (default false) - If set to true, the bootlist is not changed

Actions:

  • update - update a list of tunables
  • reset - reset a list of tunabes
  • reset_all - reset all tunables to default
  • reset_all_with_reboot - reset all tunables to default even if the ones that need a reboot

Actions: * add - add an entry in /etc/hosts * delete - remove an entry in /etc/hosts * delete_all - remove all entries in /etc/hosts * change - change an entry in /etc/hosts

niminit

Use niminit to configure the nimclient package. This will look if /etc/niminfo exists and create it if it does not exist. You can the use nimclient provider after niminiting the client.

aix_niminit node[:hostname] do
  master "nimmaster"
  connect "nimsh"
  pif_name node[:network][:default_interface]
  action :setup
end

aix_niminit node[:hostname] do
  action :remove
end

aix_niminit node[:hostname] do
  master "nimmaster"
  connect "nimsh"
  pif_name "en1"
  action :setup
end

Parameters:

  • name - hostname of the nimclient
  • master - hostname of the nim master
  • pif_name - interface name
  • connect - nimsh or shell

Actions: * setup - setup the nimclient * remove - remove nimclient configuration

nimclient

Use nimclient to install packages, update service pack, or technology level. Your NIM server should meet these requirements to work with the nimclient provider: * All resources name must end with the type of the resource (check example below): * 7100-03-05-1514-lpp_source * 7100-03-05-1514-spot * myinstallpbundle-installp_bundle * All spot and lpp_source must match the exact oslevel output. To find the next available lpp_source or spot the provider is checking for your oslevel and comparing it with the lpp_source name * 7100-03-01-1341-lpp_source * 7100-03-02-1412-lpp_source * 7100-03-03-1415-lpp_source * 7100-03-04-1441-lpp_source * 7100-03-05-1524-lpp_source * 7100-03-01-1341-spot * 7100-03-02-1412-spot * 7100-03-03-1415-spot * 7100-03-04-1441-spot * 7100-03-05-1524-spot

Recommendation: create all the lpp_source with the simage attribute to avoid ambiguity.

$ lsnim -l 7100-03-05-1524-lpp_source
7100-03-05-1524-lpp_source:
   class       = resources
   type        = lpp_source
   arch        = power
   Rstate      = ready for use
   prev_state  = unavailable for use
   location    = /export/nim/lpp_source/7100-03-05-1524
   simages     = yes
   alloc_count = 1
   server      = master

Here are a few examples of recipes using nimclient:

  installp_flags "aXYg"
  lpp_source "latest_sp"

  action :cust
