Downloading Chef 11 (Not 12)


#1

Where can I download recent releases of chef 11?

Reason I ask is that I just got this when running chef-client. No
description of error. Runlist previously worked on chef 11.

Spectacularly useless. Is chef 12 ready for use? If all the community
cookbooks aren’t going to work with chef 12, then downloading chef 11 must
be an option somewhere. I tried using version 12.0.3 of the client (was
using 11.12.4) and got the same ‘Forbidden’ result.

Everything is still available, from 11.0.4 to 11.1.6-1, at https://downloads.chef.io/ You just need to read the entire page.

That stacktrace isn’t “spectacularly useless.” It identifies that it’s a problem while saving the node:

/opt/chef/embedded/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/chef-11.12.4/lib/chef/node.rb:523:in `save’
Run chef with -ldebug to see exactly what is failing.
