This happens during cookbook upload to chef server and is due to unicode characters in README.md (at least in my case) I’ve used the following command to list offending characters in README.md. Then removed with gedit, resaved and…. upload success! Full stack here: http://fpaste.org/51397/ Reported, here: https://github.com/RiotGames/berkshelf/issues/708
Occurs when FQDN of the server is not resolvable on local network. On chef server, create file called /etc/chef-server/chef-server.rb, and added below lines… Then, run chef-server-ctl reconfigure.
