Scott Moser (smoser) wrote : cloud-init writes ephemeral0 entry in /etc/fstab on t1.micro type

Binary package hint: cloud-init

on Amazon's new t1.micro instance type, there is no ephemeral storage at all.

cloud-init is basically hard coded to expect an 'ephemeral0', while other ephemeral devices are more dynamic.

Our images are registered with block-device-mapping indicating ephemeral0, so the metadata service will include ephemeral0 even though there is not one on the instance itself.

We need to do one of 2 things here:
a.) add 'nobootwait' for the ephemeral0 device (/dev/sda2 in this case)
b.) not write a entry in /etc/fstab (or comment it out) if that device is not present on the first boot.
