Hi Brian:

To be clear: your cluster is running in us-east-1d? Did you specify that with


In the cluster section of your config?

Cheers, Hugh

Yes, the EBS I'm trying to use is available in us-east-1d and I specify "AWS_REGION_NAME = us-east-1" in my .starcluster/config.

Thanks again,

Brian O.

Hi Brian:

Is it in the same Availability Zone (us-east-1[abc] as the cluster that is trying to mount it?

Yes you can use any volume, however created, assuming the OS can mount it (it has a file system, etc)

That's all I got! :)

I've created an EBS in us-east-1d that I can attach, detach, mount and mount on various EC2 instances. I can see that it's "available" in<>. But when I try to use it in a cluster I see:

Validating cluster template settings...
!!! ERROR - volume vol-2a717454 does not exist

Here's some excerpts from my config:

AWS_REGION_NAME = us-east-1


[volume bio]
VOLUME_ID = vol-2a717454

On the other hand I can use "createvolume". I guess I have 2 questions:

- can I use the EBS I've created by hand?
- if not, what's the best way of getting the content of my EBS into the volume I create using "createvolume"?

Thank you,

Brian O.
