opensol2008-11-fixes

OpenSolaris 2008.11 AMI on Amazon EC2 includes couple of bug fixes to OpenSolaris 2008.11 that make the re-bundling of the AMI possible. The bugs are listed below:

Tuesday Jan 13, 2009

OpenSolaris 2008.11 on Amazon EC2 Released

AMI ID: ami-7db75014
AMI Manifest: sun-osol-2008-11/2008.11_32_1.0.img.manifest.xml
AKI/ARI ID:
aki-6552b60c/ari-6452b60d
License: Public

Description:

Sun Microsystems Inc. is pleased to announce the release of OpenSolaris 2008.11 on Amazon EC2's cloud computing service. This 32-bit AMI gives you the power and security of OpenSolaris combined with the flexibility of Amazon's cloud computing service, and is optimised for for EC2's cloud computing environment.

This image contains Image Packaging System (IPS),ZFS, DTrace and more. For details, please visit http://www.opensolaris.com/learn/features/whats-new/200811.

The Image Packaging System, IPS, has continued to evolve since its first appearance in OpenSolaris 2008.05. IPS now supports improved search, mirroring of network repositories, and the addition of the first phase of a client API. Developers can download additional software from the repository. The root file system is ZFS in this AMI and includes the pre-installed packages and tools necessary to get started with using OpenSolaris on Amazon EC2. You can obtain more details about the OpenSolaris project at http://www.opensolaris.org.


Also, just like in our previous AMIs, the "pkg image-update" command updates the kernel and ramdisk which is not allowed in EC2. Therefore, in order to prevent your instances from becoming non-compatible with the Amazon EC2 environment, we have disabled this command. More details including re-bundling instructions can be found in the Getting Started Guide.

The "Getting Started Guide" has been updated with instructions on Re-bundling OpenSolaris 2008.11 based 32-bit AMI on Amazon EC2. The re-bundling process has been automated with the addition of rebundle.sh script located at /opt/ec2/sbin reducing the time and complexity involved in creating new images over this base image.

There is a lot of work in progress in developing pre-packaged software stacks, like  the AMP stack and Ruby on Rails framework, targeting specific developer's needs.  Keep checking the "Open Solaris on EC2" web-page for availability of these AMIs.
