Chef Backend 1.1.2 Released

Ohai Chefs!

Chef Backend 1.1.2 has been released and is available for download.


  • cluster-status now shows which node a follower is following.
  • It is now possible to clean up a partially added node with chef-backend-ctl remove-node.
  • Stability improvements in leader election.

Bug Fixes

  • Ensure that elasticsearch uses the correct directory.
  • Do not create recovery.conf on leader.
  • Gracefully handle failover while syncing.
  • Retry etcd connections when chef-backend-ctl is waiting for leader.
  • In multi-IP hosts, only test the specified IP and not all.
  • Do not overwrite existing configuration.

Thanks, and enjoy!
