Subject Re: creating new ami image for spark ec2 commands
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2014 08:40:20 GMT
you can comment out this function and Create a new one which will return
your ami-id and the rest of the script will run fine.

def get_spark_ami(opts):
  instance_types = {
    "m1.small":    "pvm",
    "m1.medium":   "pvm",
    "m1.large":    "pvm",
    "m1.xlarge":   "pvm",
    "t1.micro":    "pvm",
    "c1.medium":   "pvm",
    "c1.xlarge":   "pvm",
    "m2.xlarge":   "pvm",
    "m2.2xlarge":  "pvm",
    "m2.4xlarge":  "pvm",
    "cc1.4xlarge": "hvm",
    "cc2.8xlarge": "hvm",
    "cg1.4xlarge": "hvm",
    "hs1.8xlarge": "hvm",
    "hi1.4xlarge": "hvm",
    "m3.xlarge":   "hvm",
    "m3.2xlarge":  "hvm",
    "cr1.8xlarge": "hvm",
    "i2.xlarge":   "hvm",
    "i2.2xlarge":  "hvm",
    "i2.4xlarge":  "hvm",
    "i2.8xlarge":  "hvm",
    "c3.large":    "pvm",
    "c3.xlarge":   "pvm",
    "c3.2xlarge":  "pvm",
    "c3.4xlarge":  "pvm",
    "c3.8xlarge":  "pvm"
  if opts.instance_type in instance_types:
    instance_type = instance_types[opts.instance_type]
    instance_type = "pvm"
    print >> stderr,\
        "Don't recognize %s, assuming type is pvm" % opts.instance_type

  ami_path = "%s/%s/%s" % (AMI_PREFIX, opts.region, instance_type)
    ami = urllib2.urlopen(ami_path).read().strip()
    print "Spark AMI: " + ami
    print >> stderr, "Could not resolve AMI at: " + ami_path

  return ami
