Thanks, yes I understand the workaround (my Magnetic AMIs still work fine) … just wanted to use the SSDs, as they're part of 'normal' EC2 these days. I didn't see the other issue (had searched for SSD instead of gp2) … thanks!

Subject: Re: [StarCluster] InvalidParameterCombination error with General Purpose SSD AMIs
I'm new to StarCluster but I ran into this bug before.
The AMIs in question in my case were my customized AMIs that I modified (adding tools and such) from the public StarCluster AMI. What I found is that although the customized AMIs was based on fully-StarCluster-functional AMI with volume type=Magnetic, the instance I used to modify AMIs used gp2 SSD. My workaround was 1) start an instance with the customized StarCluster-not-functional AMI and specify volume type=Magnetic for that instance. 2) create an AMI from the instance. The resulting AMI became fully-StarCluster-functional again (at least in my case).
Hope this is helpful and hope that in the near future StarCluster will support gp2 volumes as others have requested here https://github.com/jtriley/StarCluster/issues/264

Hi StarCluster Community:
I just submitted an 'issue' (https://github.com/jtriley/StarCluster/issues/448
), but I thought I would mention this here as well, in case someone has any thoughts.
When using an AMI with volume type = General Purpose (SSD), I get (in debug.log):

The AMIs in question are clones of fully-StarCluster-functional volume type = Magnetic.
