Sandbox Starter - controller launch failed

Hello all,


I am trying to deploy the SST through the AMI, however, the procedure fails with the following debug outcome. Any clue on how fixing it, please?


An error occurred (NoSuchEntity) when calling the GetRole operation: The role with name aviatrix-role-ec2 cannot be found. ╷ │
Error launching source instance: InvalidBlockDeviceMapping: Volume of size 32GB is smaller than snapshot 'snap-0510ea2db4fff68ce', expect size >= 64GB │ status code: 400, request id: 4df59532-76fe-4f8c-8773-badac9d2c17b │ │ with module.avtx_controller_instance.aws_instance.aviatrixcontroller[0], │ on aviatrix-controller-build/main.tf line 22, in resource "aws_instance" "aviatrixcontroller": │ 22: resource "aws_instance" "aviatrixcontroller" { │ ╵ --> Controller launch failed, aborting.

  • Do the basic steps first:

    1) make sure that role exists with policies and that you have KP in the the us-east-1 region

    2) check the main.tf or variables.tf for size attribute in resource or as input via vars as it has to be minimum 64GB to fit the snapshot

    You can reference this article as it actually gives well explained steps:

  • Giuseppe Amendolara We released a new controller ami that exposed a bug in v1.1.6, resulting in the error you posted. Version 1.1.7 has just been released to address this. You'll need to:

    • From within the sst ui, click on 'Destroy' in the top-right corner to remove any deployed artifacts from your initial attempt (if you haven't already).
    • Terminate the sst instance that you launched from ami.
    • Launch a new sst ami (which will pull in the latest version - 1.1.7)

    Appreciate you reporting this issue. Hope this helps.

    Your startup guide here https://docs.aviatrix.com/StartUpGuides/aviatrix-cloud-controller-startup-guide.html#id1

    It pulls up CF for BYOL and template at https://aviatrix-cloudformation-templates.s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/avx-awsmp-BYOL.template

    When using this template I see the same error

    Volume of size 32GB is smaller than snapshot 'snap-0e1fb5b23d1e8e214', expect size >= 64GB (Service: AmazonEC2; Status Code: 400; Error Code: InvalidBlockDeviceMapping; Request ID: 1a53edfe-2792-4922-85f7-1a694672824c; Proxy: null)


    Is there an updated template to use?

    • Shaye F It seems the template has been changed to 64 if you haven't already noticed the update.


  • John Smoker
    The template is now working perfectly. Thanks for the heads-up!
