The validator is stored here on your chef-server /etc/chef/validation.pem
If you want to regenerate it you can do this:
ls -l /etc/chef/validation.pem
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1676 2011-07-14 11:44 /etc/chef/validation.pem
sudo rm /etc/chef/validation.pem
$ sudo /etc/init.d/chef-server restart
- Restarting chef-server
~ Killing pid 10783 with INT
~ In 12051
$ ls -l /etc/chef/validation.pem
-rw------- 1 chef chef 1679 2011-07-14 11:55 /etc/chef/validation.pem
If you are on hosted chef you will need to regenerate it via the webUI.

but I am suffering to recover the keys of chef-validator, I need to to it
because I have a lot of system that are configure to deploy system.
Anyone has a tip to do it?
