SYNOPSISec2bundle ([ec2-bundle-instance]) ec2bundle [GENERAL OPTIONS] -b BUCKET -p PREFIX -o OWNER-AKID (-c POLICY | -w OWNER-ACCESS-KEY) [OPTIONS] INSTANCE
GENERAL NOTESAny command option/parameter may be passed a value of '-' to indicate that values for that option should be read from stdin.
DESCRIPTIONBundle a running instance into an AMI upon next reboot and store the image components in S3. Items are stored in S3 on the user's behalf using a signed S3 upload policy. An upload policy and corresponding signature can be specified as parameters or generated automatically if the Secret Access Key for the owner of the S3 bucket is available. The generated policy is valid for 24 hours by default. Alternatively, if a policy and Secret Access Key are given, the provided policy is signed and used. If a policy is generated, use --verbose to display the policy. The S3 bucket is created if it does not exist and the user firstname.lastname@example.org is granted read permissions on the entire bucket. To skip these checks, use --no-bucket-setup.
