[aws] How to run t2.micro?


Brian Cunnie <bcunnie@...>
 

I use t2.micro stemcells all the time, but I only deploy with bosh-init,
not bosh.

here's a snippet from
https://github.com/APShirley/sslxip-release/blob/master/examples/bosh-init-manifest-sslip.yml

- name: sslip_pool
network: default
cloud_properties:
instance_type: t2.micro
ephemeral_disk:
size: 4000
type: gp2
availability_zone: us-east-1a
stemcell:

Why not try with latest version of that stemcell?
https://bosh.io/stemcells/bosh-aws-xen-hvm-ubuntu-trusty-go_agent ( 3048 )

In list of versions, no release notes...

I wonder why it has "light" in its name.

Hmm, tried t2.small and it failed too as above.

My manifest is https://gist.github.com/drnic/0ee3335b0c0d435861e6 -
anything you can spot I'm missing? Thanks for the help.

Right. t2 series do not have ephemeral disks and that's why you have to add
ephemeral disk configuration in cloud_properties, but DrNic's error seems
to happen earlier than creation of a VM.

Can you try adding an ephemeral disk? We had issues before with HVM

We are deploying to t2.smalls and it works fine.... Is it just in t2.micros
that it fails?

I wanted a cheap AWS vm for our VPC so I tried using t2.micro. I was using
HVM stemcell. But I get the following AWS error:

Started creating bound missing vms > small_z1/0. Failed: The requested
configuration is currently not supported. Please check the documentation
for supported configurations. (00:00:01)

From googling, the only constraints I can find are: use VPC, use HVM AMIs.

Anyone have a protip on deploying t2.micros?
