I have a virtual machine for CI/build (Subversion, Jenkins) environment running Windows Server 2008 inside a VMWare server 2.0. We are migrating to AWS EC2 so using ec2-import-instance command line tool.
Following steps were followed and import took 8 hours for 60GB to upload to S3 bucket.
Remove snapshot of the VM
Convert the vmdk file to Streaming (type 5) format under a new name.
import ec2-import-instance "D:/Virtual Machines/VM Source Control/VMServer4.vmdk" -f VMDK -t t1.micro -a x86_64 -b bucket.eu-west.vmimport -o accesskey -w securitykey -g quicklaunch-1 --region eu-west-1 -z eu-west-1c
ec2-describe-conversion-tasks command with TaskID shows 'Completed' status.
A new EC2 instance is created and I started the instance from AWS Console.
When I try to remote desktop the new instance with the public DNS, the RDP can't find the instance (the quicklaunch-1 security group is already configured for other instances, and it works for my IP).
I had test imported another VM with windows, and I was able to access that ec2-instance (It had no snapshot created).
Could you please tell me what I am missing here. Thanks in advance.
