Why will hosted chef not work? SSL Validation failure connecting to host: s3-external-1.amazonaws.com


#1

Hi,

I get the below error when trying to bootstrap a machine. Is there an
issue with hosted chef? How do I resolve?

Amazon changed their TLS certificates yesterday and the new CA cert is not included in the bundles of some older OSes it seems. I’ve gotten reports of this on Ubuntu 12.04 and RHEL 6.4. You can fix it by downloading the curl cacert bundle file and adding “ssl_ca_file ‘/path/to/cacert.pem’” to your client.rb. You can also check if an update is available for your system CA bundle package.

Hosted Chef uses S3 for cookbook storage and the communication from
your node is direct to S3.

I’ve seen this before. It actually has nothing to do with SSL
validation, but a broken connection (TCP RST) between your host and
S3.
