As far as using chef-client to configure servers goes:
- When is Chef support for Debian 9 (stretch), expected to be in place?
Per the Chef documentation, it looks like Debian 6, 7 as well as 8 are listed as secondary platforms for the chef-client. Is there any news as far as the expected time-frame for chef-client Debian 9 (stretch) support?
It seems with Linux’s LTS for Debian 9, now that Debian 9 (Stretch), is out, it makes sense in the long term for companies to be configuring / provisioning Debian 9 servers as oppose to 6, 7, and 8.
I am personally using Hosted Chef server as my Chef Server option, so Chef Server Debian 9 support is not as important to my specific use, however may help others who come across this thread. Please post any information anyone may have!
