This article discusses how to convert CloudBolt OVA to an AMI
yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk
AWS and EC2 CLI Tools
Access to an AWS account
/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.7.0-openjdk.x86_64 on CentOS
Where you’ve uncompressed the EC2 CLI archive.
Add /usr/local/ec2/bin to your PATH
Name the ova something like <original ova>.ova.tgz
Untar the OVA
tar xvf <original ova>.ova.tgz
Create an S3 bucket to use for image storage during conversion
This name of this bucket is passed to the ec2-import-image on the -b switch.
ec2-import-instance cloudbolt-188.8.131.52-disk1.vmdk \
-f VMDK \
-t t2.medium \
-p Linux \
-a x86_64 \
-b demo-amis \
-o $AWS_ACCESS_KEY \
Watch conversion status with:
It takes a while, but eventually an instance shows up configured with the contents of the VMDK.
Note: it takes a while even after the conversion process has completed.
