comment How to get the public instance address from knife ec2 server create with chef-solo
For what it's worth, I'm working around this at the moment with a policy of never using the same "Name" tag on more than one server at a time, and using a simple ruby fog script that pulls the list of servers and finds the server with the appropriate "Name" tag.

My script needs to know the public IP address. It first runs knife ec2 create ..., then pushes the chef files with rsync, then runs chef-solo via ssh. But rsync and ssh can't run unless the script knows the public IP or hostname.

comment Does any Certificate Authority support both SAN and wildcards?
Thanks @MarkM and @DerfK. We did wind up talking to all of the major certificate authorities, and none of them officially supported this option. However, Digicert was uniquely willing to work with us to get this to work anyway. First we bought separate certificates for all of the domains we needed like normal, and then Digicert manually combined them all into one single cert (using Subject Alternative Names). Maybe if enough people request this, it can become a standard product.

I know it's a month later, but you're right. I'm editing the question now to only be one question. Thanks.
