Knife ec2 server create git error on 10.16.2


#1

Hi guys,

A colleague was getting some weird issues booting a new node via knife ec2 server create.
We’re using the exact same chef server, repo, run_list, keys & the knife conf only differs in the paths on our local machines.

The run_list we’re using basically deploys a rails app using the deploy_revision resource. Everything works fine for me, but he gets:

The only difference I could find was the chef gem we’re using. I was using 10.12.0, while he installed 10.16.2.
I upgraded my version to 10.16.2 & got the same error. We both downgraded again to 10.12.0 & everything worked again…
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mark

Git is reporting a permissions issue. What are the differences on the permissions on /var/www/wunderapi/shared? Do you have a user/group set on the resource?
