Knife ec2 create - equivalent of iam-instance-profile


#1

Ohai,

Trying to find a way to attach an instance-profile at boot time. I’m not
finding anything that would do that on knife ec2 server create.
Any pointers appreciated.


#2

You’ll need to use a bleeding-edge version of kitchen-ec2, at least 0a378d5, though I’ve been using 1970f56 with no issues. The IAM profile support was added in this PR: https://github.com/test-kitchen/kitchen-ec2/pull/35

yea… seems to be an issue vs help :wink:

found it the help output:

   --iam-profile NAME           The IAM instance profile to apply to

this instance.
