I'm having problems with AWS, that I guess is somehow related to IAM. I'm afraid I might be missing something obvious here, but I can't find it anywhere.

- created an IAM group with full administrative access
- created a user
jeffin this group
- logged out of the root account
- logged in as
- created a bunch of stuff, including an AMI, an RDS instance, load balancer, launch configuration, auto scaling groups, etc.
