"This instance type does not support retrieving the latest console logs"

Hi, I am trying to investigate what is wrong with my Linux instance. I get "This instance type does not support retrieving the latest console logs" error I cannot find any information what instances actually supports this functionality. "ec2:GetConsoleScreenshot", "ec2:GetConsoleOutput permissions have been given. GetConsoleScreenshot gives nothing either just a screen full of dashes. Thanks

  • What type of instance is it? What operating system is it running?

Hi AWS-User-4707325,

        Viewing the latest console output is available only with the instances built using the nitro system and is not available through the EC2 console. Here is a link that shows all instances that use the nitro system: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/instance-types.html#ec2-nitro-instances  
             
        For some more additional information check out this link:
