Creating AMI from snapshot won't accept paravirtual virtualization type
I have a snapshot I need to restore that was created the day before. I typically do this by creating an image from the snapshot and then launching an ec2 from the AMI using a launch template. The ec2 that the snapshot is created from has a virtualization type of paravirtual. When I create the image I select paravirtual. However, the image always creates with a virtualization type of hvm. Is there any reason why this would be happening? (I have tried older snapshots as well as with snapshots from other instances, but this keeps happening).
How should I delete afi that is stuck in 'pending'
I'd created several AFIs that are all stuck in 'pending' from the end of Aug. the relative thread is https://repost.aws/questions/QU-CsdCyAqTxedKYkG9PuwtA/pending-create-fpga-images-using-aws-ec-2 when I've tried to delete all stuck AFIs and the commands was banned because of OperationNotPermitted. How can I delete the AFIs regardless of their states? Thank you.
How to fix duplicate transactional email issue caused by multiple EC2 instances?
A business guy's description: customers get multiple email notifications about the same transaction. Developer's description: We have a problem with the load balancer and scheduled cron jobs in the Elastic Beanstalk ".ebextensions"-folder. When the load balancer scales in, there are multiple EC2 - instances and every instance executes cron jobs defined in the .ebextensions - folder of the project. That causes problems with the notification email delivery and our clients can receive multiple notifications -> sent email count is the same as the number of active instances. We've already tried scale in protection and "leader_only" = true definition for commands, but those are not working. What should we do to fix this problem correctly?

Why does Inspector not scan my instances?
I have some EC2 linux instances with Amazon Linux 2 and SSM agent (ie amazon-ssm-agent-3.1.1575.0-1 ) running on them. I've modified the Roles for the instances and added the AmazonSSMManagedInstanceCore policy. In the past the inspector has worked in the past and I have some scan data, but now the instances are showing up as "Unmanaged EC2 instance". So per the suggestion I ran AWSSupport-TroubleshootManagedInstance, and everything passes with flying colors if I leave out the Role to assume. If I try to set the Role to be the same as the Role used by the instance then things fails. However, it's unclear what the Role should be as most of the permissions it's failing on seem to be the caller of SSM agent would need and not the agent itself. I'm stuck as to why this suddenly not working. So why's it not working? ssm logs: ``` 2022-09-11 03:23:14 ERROR [UpdateAssociationStatus @ service.go.367] [ssm-agent-worker] [MessageService] [Association] unable to update association status, RequestError: send request failed caused by: Post "https://ssm.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/": dial tcp 172.x.x.x:443: i/o timeout 2022-09-11 03:23:14 ERROR [HandleAwsError @ awserr.go.49] [ssm-agent-worker] [MessageService] [Association] error when calling AWS APIs. error details - RequestError: send request failed caused by: Post "https://ssm.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/": dial tcp 172.x.x.x:443: i/o timeout 2022-09-11 03:23:41 ERROR [HandleAwsError @ awserr.go.49] [ssm-agent-worker] [MessageService] [Association] error when calling AWS APIs. error details - RequestError: send request failed caused by: Post "https://ssm.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/": dial tcp 172.x.x.x:443: i/o timeout 2022-09-11 03:24:30 ERROR [replaceLogger @ ssmlog.go.153] New logger creation failed 2022-09-11 03:24:30 ERROR [replaceLogger @ ssmlog.go.154] xml has no content ```

user data on EC2 not working with CDK
Hi team, I created an ec2 instance with CDK and added used data on it : ``` const userData = readFileSync("lib/my-script.sh", "utf8"); instance.addUserData(userData); instance.applyRemovalPolicy(RemovalPolicy.DESTROY); ``` my-script.sh : ``` #! /bin/bash sudo su yum -y update # adding MYSQL client to connect to RDS(MYSQL) instance. sudo yum install mysql ``` but when i connect to my ec2 instance via the session manager tab and do MySQL command I have this error : `sh: mysql: command not found` looks like the user data script was not run. I'm I missing something? how can I know if the user data script was successfully run on the ec2 instance? found this on : `/var/log/cloud-init-output.log` ``` Sep 15 00:17:50 cloud-init[xxxx]: util.py[WARNING]: Failed running /var/lib/cloud/instance/scripts/part-001  Sep 15 00:17:50 cloud-init[xxxx]: cc_scripts_user.py[WARNING]: Failed to run module scripts-user (scripts in /var/lib/cloud/instance/scripts) Sep 15 00:17:50 cloud-init[xxxx]: util.py[WARNING]: Running module scripts-user (<module 'cloudinit.config.cc_scripts_user' from '/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/cloudinit/config/cc_scripts_user.pyc'>) failed ci-info: no authorized ssh keys fingerprints found for user ec2-user. ``` thank you!
PCIe device passthrough on bare-metal EC2 instances
Hi I am trying to run some experiments which require passing one or more of the local NVMe SSDs on a bare-metal EC2 instance into a VM. I am running Linux as the host OS and would normally leverage kvm and vfio-pci to get this done. On my EC2 instance however I see no IOMMU groups or vfio kernel module. I have heard that PCIe passthrough is possible on EC2 bare-metal. Can I get some details on how to do that? I would prefer to use Ubuntu 22.04 as my bare-metal OS but if I need to use something else Linux based I can. Thanks Stephen

Unable to access my Website on EC2
I have my website hosted on AWS EC2. I have a domain (from hostinger) which is pointed to the elastic IP of my EC2 instance. Since 12th Sept 2022 morning, I am unable to access the website using the domain, anymore. I have restarted the instance, without any success. Can someone please guide me what could be the reason and how to fix it.
