I have a couple of AWS amazon linux ec2 instances running, and I'm trying to set ec2 instance id format to longer one, which has been released few days ago.
I'm trying this:
aws ec2 modify-id-format --resource instance --use-long-ids
But following error occurs:
usage: aws [options] <command> <subcommand> [<subcommand> ...] [parameters] To see help text, you can run: aws help aws <command> help aws <command> <subcommand> help aws: error: argument operation: Invalid choice, valid choices are: accept-vpc-peering-connection | allocate-address assign-private-ip-addresses | associate-address associate-dhcp-options | associate-route-table ..... abbreviated
I don't even find any modify-id-format or describe-id-format in the list above, which are found in the reference here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/reference/ec2/index.html (I believe the referecne is at the latest version = 1.9.20)
aws --version result is:
aws-cli/1.9.1 Python/2.7.10 Linux/4.1.13-18.26.amzn1.x86_64 botocore/1.3.1
(I know its weird showing 1.9.1)
sudo pip install awscli==1.9.20 result is :
Successfully installed awscli-1.9.20 botocore-1.3.20
(Is there some other PROPER way to upgrade awscli?)
What can I do to really upgradethe awscli and use modify-id-format?
