I am trying to get up and working with the AWS OpsWorks offering, but am unable to get off the ground. I hope someone is able to help me with this. Of course, the ideal way would be to use Terraform or CloudFormation to get this up, but to start with, I am using the manual way to create it.
The steps I did were -
- Created a VPC in the Oregon region.
- Ensured it has a public subnet associated to it.
- Started the AWS OpsWorks creation (wizard?), got through the first 2 screens which asks to select the Automate Server Name, AWS region and the instance type and the SSH key. However, when I reach the third screen where I would need to select the VPC, subnet and security groups, I get erratic results.
- On the first attempt, the VPC and Subnet information showed up fine. I selected the option to create a ‘Generate a new one’ in ‘Security Groups’. But the Service role and Instance profile fields didn’t get populated. When I went back and tried again, the VPC and Subnet fields didn’t get populated (which worked fine in the earlier attempt).
I still need to check with the AWS admin at my organisation to see if the issue is related to permissions. I do see an error on the home page -
You don’t have permissions to view the Chef Automate servers on this account
but it still allows me to proceed with the wizard.
What am I be missing?
