I am new to CHEF and gitlab so excuse me if these questions seem pretty basic …
I’m look at configuring the LDAP setting on a new installation. I used the CHEF ominbus cookbook for the installation. It seems like I have to get the final setting in the file:
this file says to:
# This file is managed by gitlab-ctl. Manual changes will be # erased! To change the contents below, edit /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb
sudo gitlab-ctl reconfigure.
I think that the file /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rd is created from a template and updated when the chef-client runs. It also looks like the gitlab-ctl reconfigure command runs the chef client. How do i get the settings in teh /etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb file in order to make sure they are propagated correctly and not trashed when the chef-client runs.
