I am trying to share an AMI (runs Windows Server 2008 R2) from one AWS account to another. I used these instructions to share it from the Console. I shared it to the account ID found under
Account Id in the
Account Settings on the desired account to share it to. This then appears under
Modify Image Permissions.
However, when I try to view the shared AMI from the second account, as described here, no image appears. I have tried logging out and back in to the AWS account, but it still has not appeared.
Is there a step I'm missing? Is there a waiting period?
