OnMetal with Chef Metal, because METAL
A few weeks ago I wrote a post for my employer called “Chef Metal and Rackspace" that had a sample recipe for Cloud Servers you could use with Chef Metal. With the launch of OnMetal servers at Rackspace, you can now provision bare metal servers using Cloud APIs. Here’s a Chef Metal recipe snippet to use with OnMetal servers, because the more metal the better! \m/
This example uses the proper flavor and image IDs for OnMetal servers (Debian is used here.) You will need to build servers in IAD for this to work.
This recipe as is will build 10 web servers and a single MySQL server. Edit/adjust as needed. Happy Building!
