I have an odd 'issue'.
And I feel a little dumb asking.
Just after Christmas, 2013, I added a cronjob on one of my EC2 instances to snapshot all of my EBS volumes that had a tag where backup=true, set to delete after 30 days.
I did this using the aws-missing-tool script like so
ec2-automate-backup.sh -s tag -t "backup=true" -k 31
The snapshots are still being made: so far so good. But I need to make a change to that script.
And I can't find the host they're running on ...
I did shell into the one that I think should be running it: it's not there, nor is it in the crontab.
I've spot-checked other likely ec2 instances in that VPC: no dice.
Now, I can shell into (or make ansible do it for me) a job to find that backup script. But ...
Is there a 'way' for EC2 to tell me which host the request for a snapshot is coming from?
Is it possible that ec2 is just now making the snapshots for me? I don't think so but it's late and man, when you're this tired anything seems possible.
