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.

yum-corporate Cookbook

Build Status

Configures Dell community and hardware/OMSA (Open Manage Server Assistant)
repositories. See for full details.

The default recipe configures community and hardware repositories, and installs
OMSA on Dell hardware. On non-Dell hardware, only the community repository is

The community repository provides non-Dell specific
dkms (Dynamic Kernel Module Support), and SMBIOS (Systems Management BIOS)
library packages.

The hardware repositories contain hardware drivers, firmware binaries,
BIOS updates, and OMSA software specific to Dell hardware.


There is a dependency on the dmidecode package so that Ohai can detect Dell

This cookbook depends on the yum_repository provider from the yum cookbook.
You need to have a RHEL family platform, and yum, to use the cookbook.


  • yum - Opscode maintained v3.0.x cookbook


The following are overridable attributes, in the yum['dell'] namespace.


<td>Whether Dell hardware was detected via Ohai, or not.</td>
<td><tt>Value depends on hardware.</tt></td>
<td>An array of packages from Dell repositories to install.</td>
<td><tt>srvadmin-all</tt> on Dell hardware. <tt>Empty</tt> on non-Dell hardware.</td>

Each Dell repository has its own attribute namespace. It is recommended
that you not override these, unless you have a local mirror. The attributes
correspond to the parameters in the yum_repository library.

per-repository attributes

<th>Corresponding repository</th>
<td>Community supported Open Source software.</td>
<td>Dell OMSA repository, Hardware independent</td>
<td>Dell OMSA repository, Hardware specific</td>

<td>Filename of repo file.</td>
<td><tt>dell-community</tt>, <tt>dell-omsa-indep</tt>, <tt>dell-omsa-specific</tt> respectively</td>
<td>Human readable description for repository.</td>
<td>e.g. Dell Community Repository</td>

<td>repository specific</td>
<td>URL of public signing key for package</td>

<td>Whether, or not, to check the provided gpgkey</td>

Optionally, set attributes in a role, and
include yum-dell in your node's run_list:

  :yum => {
    :dell => {
      :packages => [ "srvadmin-base" ]
  "run_list": [


This recipe does the opposite action of yum-corporate::default.

Specifically, this recipe runs to remove
all OMSA comoponents. It deletes all Dell repository .repo
files. Finally, it purges any leftover settings left after
uninstall in /opt/dell/srvadmin.
