Works Perfectly1

To you goofballs who are complaining about the root partition size: "You can create it with a 100G partition if you want, but 1-click launch won't work. You may actually have to click 2-3 times! Click manual launch and then add storage and then click launch - it may take you a whole 5 seconds longer."

Always the one I use, but why no t2.nano support?

I actively use this build for my own needs as well as those of my clients. The 8GB partition is not a problem since in most cases that is plenty for a web/app server. In the few cases where more space is needed its trivial to add an EBS volume for that. I've never had a problem logging in as the instructions explain.

My only complaint at this point is why can I not build a t2.nano instance? If I select the CentOS 7 AMI from the same it is available. CentOS 7 being based on SystemD isn't even an option. I guess the time has come to start standardizing on FreeBSD instead.


ssh using private key still prompts for password

Recently I've been using ami-bc8131d4 for lab purposes.
After I've built a custom image with Packer using above ami as a source and then created an instance using Terraform I couldn't connect as root with associated key pair. I've been asked for password.
I got it working by injecting 'PasswordAuthentication no' to sshd_config and public key to authorized_keys while building my image.
Anybody had an issue like that and knows the reason of this behaviour?

root login seems to be disbled on 2015-09-28 version.
however root login works on 2014-09-28 version.
Hopefully CentOS team take a note of this

Is certain that the max default volume is 8GB, but applying the second short guide of NCBI - SRA was solved.

Root volume resizing works just fine

  • December 28, 2014
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

When launching a new instance I (hopefully) set my root volume to 80GB. Using cfdisk to adjust partition sizes (keep the offset the same), and resize2fs to grow the filesystem worked just as I expected it to.

Removed one start because this and the selinux default settings are just annoying.

Can't mount root device on another instance

  • November 10, 2014

Sometimes I need to extend the root partition, so I try mount root device on another instance, but it fails. I hope to improve this part in the future.
