Configuration Save Location


#1

I’m working on a Chef cookbook for a Razuna server install and I would like to know where does the configurations get saved when you’re going through the installation?


#2

We use an internal database for main configuration and then there is the
standard database for all the rest.

If you let me know what exactly you are looking for I can help you better
:wink:


#3

Yea I just saw that. Well you know how when it’s first installed, you run through that short wizard of making sure all the command line tools are installed and admin user is set. I want to be able bypass that information once Chef finishes running its recipe and sets that information upon completing the server setup.

Also some other stuff like LDAP/AD, Akamai, maybe external DB, etc.


#4

The internal database just holds one table with default configuration.
Namely the db source and if the firsttime wizard has run. All other
settings are in the db itself.

There are a lot of settings taking place during the first time wizard, so
you would have to put them all into your script.

Isn’t there a way for you to simply install Razuna and run the first time
wizard in the browser? Would solve all the issues :wink:


#5

Oh got you. I can run the wizard but I was looking to see if there’s a way to do it all programatically. So the best way is to run the through the wizard after the server is installed and then point it to an existing datasource that has the configurations we need?


#6

I get you. I like to make everything as much programmatically as possible.

However, how Razuna is (currently) build, we populate the internal config
database (like a master config file). Then the first time wizard takes
those values, writes the engines config file, populates the database, etc.

I think you are better off, doing a standard install script to install all
3rd libraries, setup tomcat, etc. Then run the first time wizard and you
are set.

Oh I get it now. Thanks.


#8

I’m resurrecting an old thread, oh well.

I have the same needs as the first poster (well s/Chef/Saltstack/).

It would be useful as a new feature to be able to provide a json (or even xml) response file that an uninitialized Razuna process would use to install itself.

Thanks,
Michael

We are hard at work for Razuna 2.0. This is all based on a new stack and it
then should be possible to do it.
