cannot see my instance in EC2 dashboard or EC2 Global

I successfully created new instance in EC2 as root user, configured a web server and Route 53. I can connect to this instance via SSH or browser, but do not see the instance in EC2 Dashboard and can do nothing with it. I ran AWSSupport-ListEC2Resources but without any results

Hi,

The EC2 Dashboard shows the instances in a specific AWS Region. If you created your instance in a different Region to the one that is currently selected, you won't see that instance.

The Region selector is at the top right of the EC2 console. For a screenshot of the Region selector, see Step 2 at this link: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/ec2-resource-limits.html#view-limits

Alternatively, to see all instances in all Regions, use the EC2 Global View. To access the EC2 Global View, in the EC2 Dashboard, choose the "EC2 Global view" button near the top/centre of the screen. You can also access it by following this link: https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2globalview/home. For more information, including the required permissions, see https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/Using_Filtering.html#global-view.

Kind regards,

Marilyn

  • Thank you! But as I mentioned in the title Global view did not help. However I was able to find solution by executing identity string TOKEN=curl -X PUT "http://169.254.169.254/latest/api/token" -H "X-aws-ec2-metadata-token-ttl-seconds: 21600" \

    && curl -H "X-aws-ec2-metadata-token: $TOKEN" -v http://169.254.169.254/latest/dynamic/instance-identity/document

    The problem was in 2 different ids that I used in login.
