Maintaining High Availability with Auto Scaling (for Linux)Go to Lab
The poor Putty information for getting the PPK left me unable to continue. A reference in the lab to the AWS on the Connect Command for Putty users would have been helpful. If the lab is for AutoScaling make it focus on autoscaling, not mire us in SSH client mechanics. 2nd attempt, I successfuly got to step 72, then tried to access AutoScaling Groups from the Console and got "An Unknown Error Occurred". Same with accessing Launch Configs. 3rd time, completed. However, this time my "SCORE" reads 0/20, though I completed all steps successfully. This lab seems to be buggy and the student suffers for the problems. I would like to stay focused on the lab material, not be concerned as to why these issues (this time the SCORE) are occuring.
was not able to connect
The lab has issues. When we run the script the Launch configuration has issue and also the autoscaling lab script does not create the auto scaling group. i have found no errors while running script. but I see the below error. "Unknown error occured" and the autoscaling group and launch configuration tab both have same issue.
Step 29: A client error (AccessDenied) occurred when calling the CreateLaunchConfiguration : User: arn:aws:sts::795560616450:assumed-role/qls-1222976-3b1e4e282f934599-RootRole-1KWMWDET4XWA5/i-034702651c3dbeeee is not authorized to perform: autoscaling:CreateLaunchConfiguration on resource: arn:aws:autoscaling:us-west-2:795560616450:launchConfiguration:*:launchConfigurationName/lab-lc Different problems second time around - auto scaling launch configuration was successfully created, but no instances started. Zendesk ticket reopened. Third time was the charm - worked fine this time around.
It would be helpful to see Launch Configuration and Auto Scaling Group in UI, but it appears to be blocked at the moment, and CLI execution is not descriptive/visually appealing enough
I have ADD and keep having to reestablish a connection. I'll probably get it on the next try
lost connection :(
i needed to restart bc i spent a lot of time configuring my terminal.
