Thread: Error when creating EC2 Wowza Instance

    Default Error when creating EC2 Wowza Instance

    Hi there ... I'm trying to create a EC2 instance (ami-7669141f) ... It keeps giving me error about Storage creation.
    It's supposed to be an Ephemeral storage (instance storage). During creating it doesn't let me modify any value of it, but it keeps providing error " Missing virtual name for block device mapping" when I try to launch.
    I've launched in past several Amazon instances and never got this issue. Even though, UI on AWS has changed lately.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    We are seeing this too using the AWS console EC2 launch wizard. We don't see it with the equivalent EC2 Tools command.

    There are obviously changes in the AWS console, that I notice for the first time in testing, and we assume there is some correlation. We are looking into it here and will communicate with AWS if necessary.

    Thanks for the report,
    Richard

    It is going to be necessary to build new AMIs, which might be later today.

    At present, launching instance types with more than one disk work. Referring to this EC2 instance reference for the types that have more than one ephemeral disks. For example the m1.large Storage is: 850 GB (2x420 GB)

    The Wowza EC2 AMIs are updated to fix this.
