Automating AWS Services with Scripting and the AWS CLIGo to Lab
I missed the part the set the EC2_REGION environment variable, otherwise the Python scripts failed. The Cloudwatch metric sample gave me an issue, needed to apply a value but that was missing on my screen.
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.
