I'm trying to start a 2-node cluster in the us-west-2 region and the
initialization does not go beyond the "waiting for instances to activate"
stage. I can see that the instances are up and running through the EC2 web
console (and I can login to them directly). When I'm using the default east
region everything works well.
I'm using the latest startcluster version from Git. I first tried to use
the latest stable version (0.93.3) but got errors regarding "Invalid
security group description. Valid
descriptions are limited to 255 characters..." (again, just when trying to
use a region other than the default).
Below is the output of the start command:
izharw_at_izharw-VirtualBox:~/Desktop/EC2$ starcluster -r us-west-2 start test
StarCluster - (http://star.mit.edu/cluster
) (v. 0.9999)
Software Tools for Academics and Researchers (STAR)

And these are the entries of my configuration file:

AWS_REGION_HOST = ec2.us-west-2.amazonaws.com

NODE_INSTANCE_TYPE = t1.micro

Any suggestion of what am I doing wrong?
