I hope you can help. I'm new to Chef and have been learning on a virtualized MacOS 10.13 (High Sierra) machine running on VMWare vSphere 6.7.0. I've pulled the latest version of ChefDK 14.4.56 using Homebrew.
When I run 'sudo chef-client' locally (-z) or via bootstrap from my workstation using 'knife bootstrap --sudo', the first attempt works as intended. However, every subsequent run causes the VM to reboot itself. The system logs indicate a kernel panic, this issue is repeatable.
I've started with a fresh install of macos 10.13 on a new VM, and have have restarted the host. I'm at my end with regards to troubleshooting this issue and haven't seen any threads via Google of other having this issue.
Has the community seen this issue before? Are there are any insights or assistance you can provide?
