Porting Solaris to Amazon AWS (EC2,S3) - need for ec2ify scripts
By natiku on May 18, 2008
We need scrips to support specific features of Amazon AWS (EC2,S3), yes, we need ec2ify our Solaris instances.This entry is part of 'OpenSolaris on Amazon EC2' Workshop
Bellow I will demonstrate some ec2ify functionality, however main purpose of them is to demonstrate ec2ify process and issues, rather then make perfect suit all script(s).
I will create this ec2ify functionality:
- ec2ify/ident To be able access created Solaris instance on Amazon AWS, we need to add ability to load user SSH key-pair.
- ec2ify/me Optionally we can create simple instance parametrization and customizable on boot update / on shutdown backup functionality
Both ec2ify services will be created as Solaris SMF services so we can make they depend on other services, see more about Solaris SMF in Predictive Self-Healing - Bigadmin home of SMF
Note: This stuff will sit in /opt/ec2ify directory, SMF services will start with ec2ify name
