    Default Associate DevPay with custom AMI

    I created my own Amazon AMI and wanted to associate the DevPay ID with this. I followed this guide: http://www.wowza.com/forums/content....EC2-DevPay-AMI

    But on the final step I did this:

    ec2-modify-image-attribute [AMI-ID] --product-code 8ED157F9

    It gives me an error:

    Client.InvalidParameterCombination: Amazon DevPay is not supported for AMIs with an 'ebs' root device type.

    It is an ebs root device and that was the point of creating my own AMI. How can I associate DevPay with my AMI?

    This is an AWS EC2 limitation, and one reason why Wowza provides the license key (lickey) AMIs

    You pay base EC2 charges, not marked up for devpay, and use your own subscription or perpetual key.

    Right, but the AMIs don't suit my needs because they don't have a root device on ebs. Just so I understand, this post from charlie: http://www.wowza.com/forums/showthre...acked-instance was incorrect? I can't associate devpay to my own custom instance? Is there any way I can license Wowza with my custom AMI? I'm already signed up for DevPay.

    devpay will not work in any way with EBS backed instance. It's an AWS EC2 limitation. And, yes, you're right, the lickey AMIs won't work either.

    The only solution is to start an EBS backed instance, install Wowza, tune Wowza (the AMIs are self-tuned, but you will want have to do it in this case), then apply your subscription key to that.

    The Tuning Guide is here:
