Problem with chef writing to cache


#1

I’m having an issue where chef is having problems writing to cache. We
have an lwrp that pulls files from our internal stores when needed. We’re
pulling down a jdk binary. The resource doesn’t error out and notifies the
unpack resource to unpack the file but the file isn’t there
(/var/chef/cache) so the chef run bombs out. The stacktrace is written to
/var/chef/cache but the failed-run-data.json is not.

Has anyone experienced this. Or does the fact that chef CAN write the
stacktrace to cache but CANT write the failed-run-data.json give any clues
to what’s going on?
