It really is not resolvable, as it’s an internal AWS name.
Using -a solved it, thanks a lot!
Is there a way to set this (and probably -x along with it) as a default, say in knife.rb?

You can specify an alternate attribute to use as the connection hostname with ‘knife ssh -a’

I’m trying to use knife ssh to run chef-client on demand on some servers, but it’s failing with this message:

The servers are on an AWS VPN to which I connect via VPN. Is this something that’s missing on my part, maybe knife configuration?
