I ran into a problem in my chef environment in that I was using the original certificate that it was installed with and I was getting some trust issues when using the infrastructure. So I decided to use a signed certificate from my internal CA. The following is a quick overview of getting that going.
Assuming that you have the public and private key. Log into your chef server and go to the following directory:
Replace the yourhostname.example.com.key with your private key and yourhostname.example.com.crt with your public key.
Reconfigure the Chef Server by running:
And then restart your server by running:
chef-server-ctl stop chef-server-ctl start
And your Chef server should now be using your new certificate.comments powered by Disqus
