I have setup and environment for building the virtual machines in vmdk format and then use ec2 api tools to convert, bundle and upload it to the AWS Cloud. However, I am facing certain challenges in that.

  1. Created a virtual machine in vmdk format.
  2. used ec2-bundle-image to crete the image bundle.
  3. used ec2-upload-bundle to upload the bundle.
  4. register the manifest file from aws console.
  5. lauching the instance.

After launching the instance, i am getting the following errors:
