Knife node shows empty role


#1

A knife node show -a Role shows Roles attribute as empty, even though a
particular node has a role specified in its run list.

The funny thing is even after executing chef-client on the server; still its
node shows empty role.

Can someone please suggest if I am missing anything.

I believe you want knife node show -a roles (lower case and plural)

Hi David

That’s what shows empty.
I had specified the roles in run list of the node and I see it empty with the command you suggested. Do I need to update the role against another attribute?

Thanks
