@AJ: how do you keep track of modifications to nodes, e.g. who added a new role or cookbook? Does Chef Server keep track of that?

I was thinking that infrastructure-as-code wise one would keep the nodes in source control as well, as I would do for databags (and I see good reasons for doing that). Is this just a matter of taste or did I miss something?

I don't keep these. We only store them for backups when deleting
nodes, in the event that some data required for recovery is persisted
to node data.

I wouldn't recommend the overhead of ensuring nodes are synchronized
from server to disk and back, but perhaps a tool could be built for it

Embrace chaos, destroy nodes regularly -- build for failure.
