I am new to Chef and am struggling through syntax and usage issues. I work in an area where I do not have Internet support. I have tries using -VV, --verbose, and logging debug set to true (client.rb and knife.rb). I’ve started using strace (RHEL) as well. But, I spent 6hrs yesterday simply trying to do attribute overrides to a cookbook someone else wrote and keep receiving errors. This is one of many situations I’ve run into, each with a different twist.
So, I thought I would see, shy of ‘google’ and aforementioned settings, what tips and tricks people use for troubleshooting?
Thanks in advance
