FATAL: Net::HTTPServerException: 400 "Bad Request"


#1

Anyone know how to see the json data that is uploaded from the chef client to the chef server at the end of a client run? I’m having a problem with a few of my new clients and the /var/log/chef-server/erchef/erchef.log.1 file on my server reports a status 400 error and the reason is “error,invalid_json”.

Here is the result of the chef-client run:

For anyone following the thread, one of the guys on my team (thanks Will Albenzi) figured this out. The gecos field for one of our users had an invalid UTF-8 character in it. Once we fixed that, the install completed without issues.
