GitHub Enterprise ships as an Open Virtualisation Appliance and File; it's intended to be dropped into existing virtualization setup like VMWare, VirtualBox, etc.
I'd like to run it inside of the AWS EC2 cloud (Github doesn't provide an AMI currently).
I've read around the subject and it seems like AWS EC2's VMImport tool only supports Windows VMs, currently.
I wonder if there exists a step-by-step guide to exporting an OVA/OVF appliance into an EC2 instance, so I can create an AMI of it and go from there? I've tried to follow this guide but I don't know how to follow steps 1-3, honestly; GHE only gives me limited ssh access to the instance, and I'm not sure what to look for or how to look for it. GHE seems to ship on an Ubuntu base distribution.
(I'm still quite a beginner-level linux sysadmin; I come from a Windows development background, but am quite capable of learning quickly.)
