Chef-client automated runs


#1

We recently upgraded our environment to use chef-client 12.19.36. Since then the automated chef runs stopped working. Running chef-client manually works, and does not return any error. The automated runs fail. Here is a snipped of the chef client.log file (typed not copied):

Error: Encountered error while running plugins: #<ohai::Exceptions::AttributeNotFOund:No such attribute: ‘platform’>
Error: Running exception handlers
Error: Exception handlers Complete
Error: No such attribute: 'platform’
Error: Chef:Exceptions::ChildConvergeError: Chef run process exited unsuccessfully (exit code 1)

I’m not able to copy and paste the entire log for security reasons.


#2

We found that restarting chef client service resolves this issue. I wouldn’t have expected that solution. But it works.

This issue is resolved/
