I'm running chef .10.8 and trying to configure 2 expanders to each pull messages off rabbit & populate 2 independent solr instances.  Documentation mentions separate 1 to n and 1 to (1 of n) behaviors but it’s not clear if this is still the case with chef .10. Regardless of what I set amqp_consumer_id, index, or node_count to I get the same behavior – the first expander subscribes to all 1024 vnodes & the second refuses to do anything as there’s already a consumer on the queues.  Chef-expanderctl node-status confirms the log messages.  Searching hasn’t pulled up much:


http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Chef+Configuration+Settings doesn’t have anything regarding the expander

http://wiki.opscode.com/display/chef/Chef+Indexer covers the some settings but they don’t seem to work or aren’t applicable to this version of chef.


Is this type of configuration possible?
