I want to move to the new Effortless pattern (meaning I’m thinking about what it would be like to live without my beloved chef server).
But I cannot and will not get rid of my chef server until I’m able to search all my node attributes against A2.
I’ve been a Chef customer for years, and I have come to depend upon the “knife node search ...” capabilities.
I cannot lose my “knife search node...” functionality. I don’t care about searching in recipes (fortunately we never did that) but I do want to search on the command line, so I can easily inventory and answer questions about my infrastructure.
When my boss walks into my office to ask, how many Linux servers are running kernel version X, I want to answer that by asking my configuration management tool since it knows everything about all my nodes.
