1) 0.93.3 does not support c3 instance types.
2) cc2.8xlarge does not support standard (PV) AMIs, you should pick an
AMI that is HVM-based.
You can either run the development version of StarCluster (*not
recommended* if you want a production cluster), or you can run
"starcluster listpublic" and find an HVM-based AMI, and then modify
the StarCLuster config file and set NODE_IMAGE_ID to the HVM-based

However, recently I tried to start my cluster with my standard instance type (cc2.8xlarge) and received a message that my AMI does not have HVM (got to love the alphabet soup that Amazon has created!). Strange. So in poking around I discovered that cc2.8xlarge is "Previous Generation" and that there are new instance types in the "Current Generation". So I tried switching to a c3.8xlarge and immediately received the following message (below). It appears that this instance type is not valid, but I don't know why. Is this because of StarCluster, the AMI I am using or some other reason? Thanks for any thoughts.
