I'm trying to use knife ec2 server create to automatically launch ec2 instances for the first time, but I'm getting
"ERROR: Excon::Errors::BadRequest: Expected(200) <=> Actual(400 Bad Request)".
knife ec2 server list the list of existing servers is returned, which means the AWS IDs in
.chef/knife.rb are correct.
I checked AMI ID using Ubuntu's AMI Finder, and tried different combinations of all other parameters, so can't figure out what's wrong.
I'm using is:
knife ec2 server create \ -r "role[memcached]" -I ami-d0f89fb9 -f m1.small \ -i mysshkey.pem --ssh-user newuser \ --region us-east-1b -Z us-east-1b
(there is a Chef role called
memcached, there's a file in the local directory called
Environment: Win7, Git 1.8.1.msysgit.1, Chef/Knife 11.4.4. I will try later doing the same from a Linux workstation, so I can isolate if the problem is the environment, or paramenters, or AWS credentials.
Any idea how to troubleshoot knife ec2 scripts?
