Comments:

Is there documentation on how one can create their own custom OpenSolaris AMIs? I would prefer this as an alternative to self-bundling using ec2-bundle-vol. Thanks.

Ali,

You can start with the instance of our base opensolaris AMI - (ami-41e70328), customize it and then re-bundle it on ec2 with the steps mentioned in the getting started guide located at
http://www.sun.com/third-party/global/amazon/Sun_AmazonEC2_GettingStartedAug08Update.pdf

make sure you re-bundle it with the right kernel (aki-b78367de) and the ramdisk image (ari-b68367df).

Catalog for the base OpenSolaris AMI is located at
