AWS Cookbook


#1

I’m trying to use the AWS cookbook:

Receiving this error:
NameError

uninitialized constant Opscode::Aws::Ec2::RightAws

My recipe has at the top:
chef_gem “right_aws”

I saw this:
https://tickets.opscode.com/browse/CHEF-3696

… but I don’t understand the implications. Does this mean the AWS
cookbook is just plain broken? Chef bug? Something else?

You shouldn’t need your own chef_gem resource for the right_aws gem when using the AWS cookbook. Have you tried to include_recipe ‘aws’ before you use any of the cookbook’s LWRP’s? That’s all that’s been necessary to use the cookbook, in my experience.
