Hardened OpenSolaris 2009.06 AMI now available in Europe

We are very happy to announce the availability of the latest Hardened OpenSolaris 2009.06 AMI on Amazon EC2 in the European Region. This AMI is based on the OpenSolaris 2006.09 US AMI and does not need registration.

Following are the details of this new AMI:

Hardened OpenSolaris 2009.06 32-bit AMI:

ami-b69fb7c2 aki-2181a955 / ari-b49fb7c0

Manifest: hardened_opensolaris_2009.06_32_1.2.img.manifest.xml

To run this AMI in Europe, change the following environment variables before launching the AMI:

EC2_URL="https://eu-west-1.ec2.amazonaws.com"
LOCATION="EU"

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).

Rebundling Changes:

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

In addition if you want to disable auditing during re-bundling, you can execute following commands in your clean up tasks before executing "ec2-bundle-image" command.

bash # audit -t
bash # > /var/log/auditlog
bash # rm -f /var/audit/\*
