Automating AWS Services with Scripting and the AWS CLIGo to Lab
Good lab - adequate amount of time to complete. However, the estimated completion time seemed a bit too low. Without distractions, 50 minutes probably would have been closer. Also, the discussion of deleting old snapshots before creating new ones was rather confusing, as it was just stated that snapshots are cumulative. I did my own research and found that data referenced by subsequent snapshots is not deleted. It would be nice to mention this or link to the AWS document here: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/ebs-deleting-snapshot.html
step65: tag key cannot be empty.
Incomplete information for the tagging when creating the ec2 instance. a, b, c, d, missing a step for the name value of the instance tag.
AWS cli didn't work. Errors like : [ec2-user@ip-172-31-19-170 ~]$ aws help Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/aws", line 15, in <module> import awscli.clidriver File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/awscli/clidriver.py", line 31, in <module> from awscli.help import ProviderHelpCommand File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/awscli/help.py", line 20, in <module> from docutils.core import publish_string
Python 2.6 is outdated and not supported. Please update lab to the boto3 and python3.x branch.
Unsatisfied. I cannot connect to the machine via Putty, so there is nothing I can do with this lab. Possibly a problem with the PPK file, as I have been able to connect with previous labs.
