Just wondering if anyone could help with merging of hashes.
I am attempting to take a given node object and copy it to a hash:
vars = node.test.to_hash
Then I have a data bag with similar keys/values as the node.test object.
So the default in attributes for node.test.var1 = "value_1"
And the data bag is var1 => value1
I want to be able to vars.deep_merge!(dbag[“default”]) but every time I try Chef throws
Chef::Exceptions::ImmutableAttributeModification: Node attributes are read-only when you do not specify which precedence level to set. To set an attribute use code like `node.default[“key”] = “value”’
vars.class returns Hash as expected and not a node object so why the Exception?
Any way around this?
