EC2 Root partition does not get resized to the available space after updates are applied
Last modified: 2017-08-15 14:21:09 EDT
Description of problem:
I did two tests all with c3.large instance types, though that doesn't matter.
#1 Create an instance from ami-0ff3f13f and I was able to resize the root partition. I then created an AMI from this instance and launched a new instance with this new AMI and was able to resize the root partition. Just wanted to see if remaking a new AMI caused the issue, it didn't.
#2 I create an instance from ami-0ff3f13f and patched it (yum -y update), which is what we do as part of our hardening process. I then created an AMI from this instance and launched a new instance with this new AMI was NOT able to resize the root partition.
Because we must fully patch ami-0ff3f13f (and make other configuration changes) before turning it over to our internal customers, it's effectively broken.
