: Deploy WanOS on AWS China
: kyrjha January 06, 2017, 08:45:20 AM
Hello All,

I currently manage vm hosted in AWS china but unfortunately the standard internet link between china mainland & the rest of the world is not stable at all.
loss of packet, BW up & down...

so for ssh, log analysis etc I think a solution like WanOS could be very intersting.
I can not find any solution on the market place...
I have tried to install on vmware WanOS then upload to AWS but without success (not dhcp client found - I have install the default aws dhcp client but no change).

Could you give me the how to deploy wan os from scratch on AWS ? or make a public or other AMI image on AWS china ?

Thank in advance.

Yes, the Wanos Amazon AMI is currently hosted in the North Virgina region and needs to be copied to the preferred region:

Here are some more detailed installation steps: Wanos Amazon AMI install (http://wanos.co/docs/docs/wanos-admin-guide/installation/amazon-aws/)

The specifics of AWS China is that it is fully isolated from other AWS regions -- so there's no way to copy an AMI from a different region. All AMIs should be created locally.

That's why using an existing AMI from AWS NW is not an option, we need to rebuild it from scratch.

Is there any instructions/guidelines on how to do it?

Ok, I see it is completely isolated and we cannot select China as a region.

Possibly your method of exporting from vmware to AWS was on the right track and close. There are very minor differences between the standard image and the AMI. The only changes are related to using the DHCP IP on startup.

The following steps might work:
Deploy on VMware
Update to minimum v.3.2.2
Install Amazon tools: "apt-get install cloud-guest-utils cloud-init"
Edit /etc/network/interfaces and enable DHCP for eth0
Power off and export to Amazon.

If everything checks out, the Wanos AMI should boot up with the VPC IP. If not, we can look into your requirements and objectives. If there is a good match we can look into creating the AMI from scratch.
