Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 800442
Add capability to run user scripts from userdata in RHEL AMIs
Last modified: 2012-10-25 09:29:57 EDT
Request from Amazon:
We have a request from a customer to have RHEL AMI output the ssh fingerprints
to the console on boot. This allows our customers to verify that the host they
are ssh'ing to is the same host that is in their account in the console. We
also recommend this to customers in the EC2 User Guide:
The customer would have setup a script to output these himself but the RHEL
amis don't currently have a mechanism to run user scripts from the userdata.
Would like to target this for any future regions (add it to all AMIs) and for
existing regions, only add it to new versions of RHEL.
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Note that integration of the cloud-init package may solve this.
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development. This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
Note that integration of the cloud-init package will solve this.
