Introduction to Amazon EC2 Container RegistryIr al Laboratorio
Didn't work for me. Trying it all over again.
the instructions failed to mention that putty prompts with "login as:" which should be answered "ec2-user" (I tried this lucky guess). Also, I believe I followed all the instructions correctly, but ended up encountering an error (unable to pull docker image or something like that). Overall ok lab, but feels unsatisfying because it didn't work.
When starting up, the setting up bar and clock froze after 2 minutes. I was able to go ahead and complete the lab. Further, when going into the ec2 screen, I got a highlighted red error message:Failed to retrieve cluster metrics User: arn:aws:sts::059824539209:federated-user/john is not authorized to perform: cloudwatch:GetMetricStatistics (Service: AmazonCloudWatch; Status Code: 403; Error Code: AccessDenied; Request ID: e1540a1c-600a-11e7-a80f-575ce18881b7) User: arn:aws:sts::059824539209:federated-user/john is not authorized to perform: cloudwatch:GetMetricStatistics (Service: AmazonCloudWatch; Status Code: 403; Error Code: AccessDenied; Request ID: e16e9688-600a-11e7-bd5b-2512039edafa)
Did not work
I wish this lab compares how ECR works vs. the more familiar DockerHub. The current narrative of the lab is confusing unless I already know how ECR works. For example, it's not obvious (no diagrams, no pointing out what happened under the hood) how the container magically started running (I didn't do "docker run") and how it magically integrated with ELB.
was not enough time: I think that option "pause lab" is needed here ...
