Create custom AMS AMI for Amazon Web Services

I'm using AMS 5.0.1 on AWS. I would like to create my own customized AMI - I would like to configure the 'stock' AMI to my liking and then create a new AMI from that customized server.


I've tried some methods that I found to try to create a new AMI but I'm running into problems. It seems that I can't create a new paid AMI from and existing one.


This is the error:

Machine image ami-XXXXXXXX and kernel image aki-XXXXXXXX have incompatible product codes.


I tried to inject the product code using;

ec2-modify-image-attribute ami-XXXXXXXX --product-code XXXXXXXX


but got this error:
Client.AuthFailure: Not authorized for image:ami-XXXXXXX



This is a critical issue for me, I need to be able to automatically create AMS instances within AWS. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.


Another option would be to persuade Adobe to create some slightly modified AMI's for public use?

    I think the main issue here is the billing one. In order for Adobe to properly bill for AMS usage on Amazon Web Services, it needs to control which machine images have AMS. Unfortunately for you, I doubt Adobe will tweak their images specifically for your purposes.
