Did something about the link resource change in .10? I’m getting cannot
convert nil intoString from previously working lines.

At chef conf… Hard to fix…

Hi Edward,

There was a bug about the link resource in 0.10.10 that was just opened
this weekend: http://tickets.opscode.com/browse/CHEF-3102

It causes the resource to fail whenever the owner/group attributes are set.
If you cannot remove these from your recipes you should be able to go back
to installing 0.10.8 on any new servers by using the command ‘gem install
chef --version 0.10.8’ instead, or adding ‘–bootstrap-version 0.10.8’ to
the end of your knife commands.

Hi Jessica,
That was it - thanks.
Teaches me for not pinning the chef release in my AWS launch config.

(fault-finding on a tiny iPhone with diminishing battery does not make for
a fun afternoon. :frowning: )

Cheers,
Edward
