Subject [jira] Updated: (HADOOP-952) Create a public (shared) Hadoop EC2 AMI
Date Mon, 05 Feb 2007 21:53:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-952?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Tom White updated HADOOP-952:

    Attachment: hadoop-952.patch

This patch includes changes to the EC2 scripts to support creation of public AMIs. The main
changes are to do with tightening up security - there is a good checklist at http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AmazonEC2/dg/2006-10-01/public-ami-guidelines.html.
The important thing is to clear out keys before bundling the image. Also, since the hadoop
AMIs were previously private it was OK to create a new SSH key for the cluster and embed it
in the image - this is now a big no no, since it would allow people to connect to someone
else's cluster! Instead, your EC2 keypair is used for password-less logins across the cluster.

Before publishing some images, it would be great if someone could test a private image I have
created and sanity check the setup. I'll grant access using the mechanism described here:
http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?entryID=530&ref=featured. So,
if you have an EC2 account and would like to help please email me (off list) with your AWS
account ID (note this is _not_ either of your access keys). 

After this I'll create a public image.

> HADOOP-884 makes it easy to run Hadoop on an EC2 cluster, but building an AMI (Abstract
Machine Image) can take a little while. Amazon EC2 supports shared AMIs (http://developer.amazonwebservices.com/connect/entry.jspa?entryID=530&ref=featured),
so we could provide publically available AMIs for each Hadoop release.
