I was able to install the latest RC (10.12.0.rc1) and that did resolve my problem!
Now I have to figure out how to automate this rollout, when I tried to use chef it didn’t work b/c when chef-client start to run, it uses the version of the chef gem it has installed (0.10.10), so the chef-client run on my node still fails. It will succeed the next time it runs
gem_package “chef” do
but that did not work, I was able to get it to install with:
bash “fix chef gem” do
code "gem install chef --pre"
I just prefer keep it as clean as possible. So if there is a better way let me know.
(I would really like to have a recipe that specifies which version before anything else fires off that way I can use my environments and test before rolling out new versions of the chef gem to production, or easily roll back if needed)… just a thought.

Apparently the issue is not fixed yet and the recommendation is to stay on
10.08. Only issue is I can’t figure out how to downgrade. I see I have a chef
gem for 0.10.10 and 0.10.08
Can you please try reproducing with the latest RC?
gem install chef --pre
You should get version 10.12.0.rc1
