I’m trying to disable SSL verification during kitchen runs, by setting attributes as defined in the kitchen.yml doc.
suites: - name: default ... attributes: chef_client: config: ssl_verify_mode: ":verify_peer"
This does not seem to produce any effect, as my http_request resources still fail with “SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=error: certificate verify failed”.
If I look at /tmp/kitchen/client.rb, I can see that my settings are not present.
If I use the recipe chef_client::config, a file /etc/chef/client.rb is created with my settings, but obviously the requests still fail.
Is there really a way to customize the client.rb used on kitchen runs?
BTW, my real need is to disable SSL verification on http_request only, but it does not seem to be possible.
