Tanks a lot Titus,

In fact, I got it to work yesterday afternoon following the excellent and detail steps of Eric Hammond: (one needs to have the EC2 CLI tools installed and configured on local computer thought)

I was then able to use the newly created AMI as my default in the StarCluster config.

Should keep this handy in STAR cluster FAQ/Mailing list

This must be a very basic question but is there a way do define the size of the root volume? The current size is set to 8GB and I am 100% full
Sorry if this has been asked before or if it's obvious, but I search the documentation and the mailing list could not find an answer...

Hi Marco,

This might be of interest --


"Launching an Amazon EBS-backed instance with increased root device storage disk size"

Let me know how it goes!
