ExportImageTask: ClientError: Unsupported architecture 183 for <AMI-ID>

0

Hello, I'm trying to export one of my AMIs, which is based on Amazon Linux for ARM64. When checking the status of the ExportImageTask I get:

{
    "ExportImageTasks": [
        {
            "ExportImageTaskId": "export-ami-XXXX",
            "S3ExportLocation": {
                "S3Bucket": "XXXX",
                "S3Prefix": "export/"
            },
            "Status": "cancelled",
            "StatusMessage": "ClientError: Unsupported architecture 183 for XXXX.aarch64",
            "Tags": []
        }
    ]
}

Hello, thank you for your post. Unfortunately, the VM Import/Export service does not support the ARM64/aarch64 architecture. Currently the service only supports x86-based images for import or export. There is an open feature request to support ARM64, however, there is no ETA.

  • Thank you for your answer! I didn't find any public documentation about this limitation. Did I miss it? Also wish the error message was more descriptive to let the user know what you just stated, that "the VM Import/Export service does not support the ARM64/aarch64 architecture."
