I am trying to create a Chef cookbook that will run Hashicorp Consul in the background and will continue with the rest of the recipe and not get hung on starting Consul.
I have tried the
& method at the end of the command but when chef-client exits it kills the process and will not let me run any checks / testing against Consul.
Anyone have a suggestion on how to resolve this? I know I have seen a few implementations where they use ruby scripts but I would like to avoid that as I suck at ruby. Also do not want to use another cookbook from online, rather make my own to learn how as this is a learning project.
