Generate certs for a new host
When adding a new Mediawiki (mw/mwmaint/mwdebug/deploy) host to the site, before adding the puppet role a cert for mcrouter needs to be generated and added to the private puppet repository.
Without these files in the repo puppet will throw an error similar to
Error 500 on SERVER: Server Error: Evaluation Error: Error while evaluating a Function Call, secret(): invalid secret mcrouter/mwmaint1002.eqiad.wmnet/mwmaint1002.eqiad.wmnet.crt.pem.
The generated files need to be added and git committed in /srv/private/modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter on a puppetmaster (puppetmaster1001) before the first puppet run happens.
Based on the chat excerpt below:
- ssh to a puppetmaster (puppetmaster1001)
- save a copy of /etc/cergen/mcrouter.manifests.d/mediawiki-hosts.certs.yaml for good measure.
mcrouter_generate_certs --generate --add <FQDN1> <FDN2>...Please make sure all FQDNs already resolve correctly to the server's IP address.
- Review and commit the contents of
- Add similar fake certs for your hosts to labs/private (just copy the fake directory of another host).
Renew CA and certificates
ssh to a puppetmaster and then do the following:
# Save a copy of the current mcrouter tree cp -r /srv/private/modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter/ mcrouter # Delete the current public certs find /srv/private/modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter/ -type f -name "*.crt.pem" -delete # Re-generate the certs sudo cergen --base-path /srv/private/modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter/ --generate /etc/cergen/mcrouter.manifests.d # Verify the old CA cert can validate the new certs openssl verify -verbose -CAFile ./mcrouter/mcrouter_ca/ca.crt.pem /srv/private/modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter/mw1295.eqiad.wmnet/mw1295.eqiad.wmnet.crt.pem # Verify the new CA cert can validate old certs openssl verify -verbose -CAFile /srv/private/modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter/mcrouter_ca/ca.crt.pem ./mcrouter/mw1295.eqiad.wmnet/mw1295.eqiad.wmnet.crt.pem # Verify the expiry of the new certs openssl x509 -noout -dates -in /srv/private/modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter/mcrouter_ca/ca.crt.pem openssl x509 -noout -dates -in /srv/private/modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter/mw1295.eqiad.wmnet/mw1295.eqiad.wmnet.crt.pem # Commit your changes cd /srv/private && git add modules/secret/secrets/mcrouter/ ## sudo -i ; git commit
remember to disable puppet on mcrouter hosts, then after running puppet agent again new certificates and ca will be stored in the path and mcrouter process will get inotified and will reload them itself, there is no need for a restart.
