Public aws ami not found

Post by j_stallard » 2018/08/28 00:18:44

All:
am I missing something?
I no longer can find the public aws centos AMIs -neither through the console, the cli nor when referencing via cloudformation.
e.g.:
aws --region us-east-1 ec2 describe-images --owners aws-marketplace --filters Name=product-code,Values=aw0evgkw8e5c1q413zgy5pjce
HTTPSConnectionPool(host='ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com', port=443): Read timed out. (read timeout=60)

Please advise,
Jim.

That looks more like a problem with Amazon servers or your local firewall to me - "Read timed out" means it didn't respond.

Thanks for the quick response, Trevor .
these are public AMIs so I should be able to get a listing of latest CentOS AMIs.

I've used the AMIs listed on Centos.org:
https://wiki.centos.org/Cloud/AWS

They don't work either and are not visible via the console (no firewall issues with the console).

So something isn't working - do I have to subscribe to centos.org for each AWS account or something?

Our wiki page just links to the images on Amazon - we don't host them. They are created and uploaded to Amazon. The output from your aws command shows that it had a connection problem to ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com and that has nothing to do with us.
