Chef clients writing out all config files anew as of midnight Jan 01


#1

Is anyone else seeing their chef client writing out new copies of
every template as of midnight of the new year Jan 1? It’s causing a
lot of services to restart that have no need to.

Mostly Chef 10.0 clients.

Confirmed all templates are getting rewritten with 10.8 clients too.
This is a pretty nasty bug as it’s causing all of our Chef-managed
services to restart.

Figured it out. It’s our fault. Some of our templates have a copyright
header that auto-generates the year.
