Windows Upgrade to Chef Client 11 Not Working


#1

Hi,

I’ve just upgraded my Win2008R2 server to Chef client v11 but when running my cookbooks with chef-solo I receive the following error:

I’ve uninstalled v11 and put v10 back on and now everything works as normal. I don’t have the chef_handler receipe but wondering if this is now a dependency in v11.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Dan

You’re probably hitting this issue:

Probably a cookbook in your repo has a dependency on chef_handler. Getting metadata dependencies correct is important for chef-solo on Chef 11, it uses this information to evaluate attribute (and other) files in a sane order.

Excellent thanks I’ll give that a go!
