Re: Can't find starcluster on latest 64-bit AMI

Hi Stuart,

Just to follow up the AMIs do not have StarCluster installed.
StarCluster is meant to be installed on your local machine and handles
launching/configuring the instances over SSH so there is no need to have
it installed on the AMI/cluster. In any event using StarCluster on an
EC2 instance would require you to store your credentials on the EC2
instance which is something I wouldn't recommend for security reasons.
It's best to keep your credentials off the cloud if you can help it.
