I got this error as well. Based on the PendingVerification 2 hours error I would assume it’s on Amazon’s side. I might try to start over as suggested if I don’t hear from Amazon.
Update: I had to request the P2 instance as recommended in the video. Amazon phoned me. I saw the P2 in the EC2 server list on the website so I assumed it was available now in 2017 without a request.
When I run the command bash setup_p2.sh, I get the following error:
An error occurred (InvalidKeyPair.NotFound) when calling the RunInstances operation: The key pair ‘aws-key-fast-ai’ does not exist
An error occurred (MissingParameter) when calling the CreateTags operation: The request must contain the parameter resourceIdSet
Waiting for instance start…
Waiter InstanceRunning failed: Max attempts exceeded
usage: aws [options] [ …] [parameters]
To see help text, you can run:
aws: error: argument --instance-id: expected one argument
An error occurred (MissingParameter) when calling the RebootInstances operation: The request must contain the parameter InstancesSet
All done. Find all you need to connect in the fast-ai-commands.txt file and to remove the stack call fast-ai-remove.sh
Connect to your instance: ssh -i /Users/svonpfefer/.ssh/aws-key-fast-ai.pem ubuntu@None
I see the same output as @svonpfefer.
I’m on OS X, and am using a preexisting anaconda install with python 3.5 - is that relevant?
~/.ssh/aws-key-fast-ai.pem exists but is empty, which seems like it might be unusual.
UPDATE: removing that file and trying the script again seems to have resolved the issue.
after i installed:
$ pip install awscli
i got this message:
-bash : aws: command not found
but when i write aws.cmd i got:
how can i fix it?
Hello, I got following error when setting up setup_p2.sh on windows 10
: Permission denied: /dev/null
setup_p2.sh: line 129: syntax error: unexpected end of file
can anyone help?
I have edited setup_p2.sh in notepad which has only 128 lines.
I’m still confused about whether t2.micro or t2.large is a free service instance? In the ‘AWS intall’ wiki page, the author mentions t2.large, but in the ‘Lesson 1’ video, the other author mentions t2.micro as a free service instance. So which one to request and use for testing purpose without being charged 0.90/hr rate?
I found my answer from ‘Lesson 1’ wiki. Here a copy and paste from the page:
The free t2.micro instance type recommended in the lesson does not have enough RAM to use the VGG16 model. To switch to t2.large, which has enough memory (but costs $0.10/hour) see the Change EC2 Size page
I tried 2 install aws for a week by now…
i’m really clueless…maybe someone could help me through SKYPE?
For other guys who may have the same AuthFailure errors: before you run setup_p2.sh script make sure the time on your computer is properly synchronized.
I would check out this page: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/installing.html
"pip install --upgrade --user awscli"
but i still keep getting:
somehow it is only recognize aws.cmd and not aws…
I am trying to set up my aws account and keep getting this message below - no matter what region I select. Does anybody know why ?
Also, I have found the ami that the script install in the instances community options - so I can set that up from the console but I dont know what else I would need to do to get it running - is there a step by step guide to set up without the script?
Thanks in advance ,
I had the same issue and it seems that downloading and installing awscli with the .msi installer provided by amazon has solved that problem. I does take a little longer than using pip install but it got me set up. I hope it helps.
Thanks for the info. I will give it a try. Did you have to start from fresh to get it to work?
Sorry further to my last question - how did you run the script after the msi installer - still in Cygwin?
I didn’t. I went to Amazon’s aws web page and downloaded it.
Although I have tried my best I keep on running into small yet very tyring problems with setup. Now, I can get setup_t2.sh to work despite all the reading. I wish there was an easier way. Syntax seems to be messed up there and all the variables with “$” wont work… I tried running the script line by line and replacing the variables by the values I got from aws. However, every now and then there is something I can’t get through. Any advice (Windows 10 + Cigwin). PS. I hate Windows 10… but that’s what I can do at the moment. Time-wasting and patience-burning setup.
