I’m upgrading my production Chef Server from Chef 10 to 11 and ran into a
problem importing some nodes. A node with a 1.5M json file will load, but one
with a 1.9M or larger will not. I get the error
ERROR: . failed to create_child: Failure creating ‘server1.json’: 413 “Request
Entity Too Large”
These nodes have a very large number of virtual IP addresses discovered by ohai
that is making them so large.
I tried playing with client_max_body_size in nginx, but it didn’t seem to help.
Any other thoughts on what to increase to allow for very large nodes?
