Deprecation: Deprecation of run_command (CHEF-14)

The old run_command API has been replaced by shell_out (a wrapper around Mixlib::ShellOut).

This deprecation warning was added in Chef Infra Client 12.18.31, and run_command will be removed permanently in Chef Infra Client 13.


Previously to run a command from Chef Infra Client code you might have written:

run_command(command: '/sbin/ifconfig eth0')


You now need to use shell_out! instead:

shell_out!('/sbin/ifconfig eth0')
