SUBJECT: Errors copying MS Windows AMI across regions

 

Hi, thanks for your services.

I am currently having an issue copying a MS Windows AMI from US-E to EU-W.

The first time I ran the script it gave the error: "Execution failed in status FailedState due to The key pair 'Key_Pair_Name' does not exist". After checking this board I created a new Key Pair for each region without any spaces/special characters and tried again. Unfortunately it gave the same error with the new key pair files/key pair names.

Below is the output from the second attempt:

Jan, 12 - 02:06:08: Architecture of image ami-23f53c4a is i386. Use instance_type m1.small.


I then tried to run the script again today before posting here, but this time it seems to have hung at "Jan, 16 - 20:22:19: creating mount point /mnt/tmp_vol-25dcea48... ". The script has been running +2hrs and it has not moved past this point, although I do still see activity on the instance the script has created.

If I try to run the script again I get: "Execution failed in status Initial due to image ami-fbbe838f not found"

I suspect this has something to do with the other AMI still running, but wanted to check here before killing it. Don't see a way to stop the copy from the site, but obviously could terminate the instance.

Any ideas? Thanks.
