Description Matthew Staebler 2021-06-23 18:23:30 UTC
With the separation of terraform stages, the IAM instance profile for the bootstrap instance may not be ready when the instance is created. The AWS terraform provider should be retrying for 2 minutes in this case. However, there are frequent occurrences of the terraform provider sending a few requests and then not recognizing that it received a response for the last request. In such cases, the terraform provider waits for the remainder of the 2 minutes, but does not attempt any more requests.
