FATAL: Mixlib::ShellOut::CommandTimeout


Can I get some guidance on how to properly implement the following options
in Chef11?

run_command_stderr_timeout 3600
run_command_stdout_timeout 3600

These exist, with values in the knife.rb file of the machine doing the
bootstrapping of instances, however I do not see the value copies over to
the newly bootstrapped machine’s /etc/chef/knife.rb

Alternatively, simply setting the timeout at the ‘service provider’ level
would be work as well.

service “service-name” do
supports :status => true, :restart => true, :reload => true
action [ :enable, :start ]
timeout '3600’
