I'm a bit confused here. I've been trying this for days but couldn't get it to work. Hopefully someone could shed some light here.
I have 1 instance (Amazon AMI x86_64 AMI, EBS backed) running in us-east-1 region, and I wanted to migrate to ap-southeast-1 region (using S3 bucket).
Here are the steps I've taken:
1. ec2-bundle-vol \ -k pk-xxx.pem \ -u xxx \ -c cert-xxx.pem 2. ec2-migrate-manifest \ -m /tmp/image.manifest.xml \ -c cert-xxx.pem \ -k pk-xxx.pem \ -a xxx \ -s xxx \ --region ap-southeast-1 3. ec2-upload-bundle \ -b my-sg-bucket \ -m /tmp/image.manifest.xml \ -a xxx \ -s xxx \ --location ap-southeast-1 4. ec2-register \ -K pk-xxx.pem \ -C cert-xxx.pem \ --region ap-southeast-1 \ my-sg-bucket/image.manifest.xml \ --name my-ami
Everything was working fine. I'm able to see the newly created AMI in AP region. But when I tried to create an instance with the AMI, I can't choose 't1.micro' as the instance type. I soon find out that the AMI is an instance-store AMI (strange it is EBS backed in the first place).
This lead me thinking what I've done wrong here to migrate an EBS backed instance to different region without changing it to instance-store AMI?
