Hardened OpenSolaris 2008.11 AMI Now Available on Amazon EC2 in Europe!
We are very happy to broaden the
availability of the latest Hardened OpenSolaris AMI on Amazon EC2
in the European Region. This AMI is based on the OpenSolaris 2008.11 base AMI and does not need registration.
Following are the details of this new AMI:
Hardened 32-bit AMI:
ami-d7a189a3 aki-661c3412 / ari-601c3414
To run this AMI in Europe, change the following environment variables before launching the AMI:
The other env variables remain the same.
NOTE: a unique <your-keypair-name> must be generated for each region before launching an AMI.(Use ec2-add-keypair <name> > keypairfile after setting the above env variables).
As you can see we have introduced the new ARI (ari-9d6889f4) with this AMI, make sure you use the correct ARI with the "ec2-bundle-image" command as given below.
bash # ec2-bundle-image -c $EC2_CERT -k $EC2_PRIVATE_KEY \\
--kernel aki-661c3412 --ramdisk ari-601c3414 \\
--block-device-mapping "root=rpool/56@0,ami=0,ephemeral0=1" \\
--user <userid> --arch i386 \\
-i $DIRECTORY/$IMAGE -d $DIRECTORY/parts
addition if you want to disable auditing during re-bundling, you can
execute following commands in your clean up tasks before executing

bash # rm -f /var/audit/\*
