Validation key file empties and new copy is created


#1

After installing chef 10.12.0 and doing knife bootstrap, the validator key is
emptied and a new one is created.
e.g.

The pem my-validator.pem is emptied and a new file my-validator.1340601879.pem
is created with the contents of the my-validator.pem

Why is this weird behaviour?


#2

Perhaps you have the chef-client::remove_validation recipe in the run_list?

Please post the full run in DEBUG mode, including any additional
supplemental data (run list, platform, version, so-on)
