NAME
ec2-import-instance - Create an import instance task to import a virtual machine into EC2
SYNOPSIS
ec2iin ([ec2ii, ec2-import-instance]) ec2iin [GENERAL OPTIONS] [SPECIFIC OPTIONS] disk-image

GENERAL NOTES

Any command option/parameter may be passed a value of '-' to indicate that values for that option should be read from stdin.

DESCRIPTION

Create an import instance task to import a virtual machine into EC2 using meta-data from the given disk image. The volume size for the imported disk-image will be calculated automatically, unless specified. The image may then be uploaded using ec2-upload-disk-image.

GENERAL OPTIONS

-K, --private-key KEY Specify KEY as the private key to use. Defaults to the value of the EC2_PRIVATE_KEY environment variable (if set). Overrides the default. -C, --cert CERT Specify CERT as the X509 certificate to use. Defaults to the value of the EC2_CERT environment variable (if set). Overrides the default. -U, --url URL Specify URL as the web service URL to use. Defaults to the value of 'https://ec2.amazonaws.com' or to that of the EC2_URL environment variable (if set). Overrides the default. --region REGION Specify REGION as the web service region to use. This option will override the URL specified by the "-U URL" option and EC2_URL environment variable. -v, --verbose Verbose output. -?, --help Display this help. -H, --headers Display column headers. --debug Display additional debugging information. --show-empty-fields Indicate empty fields. --hide-tags Do not display tags for tagged resources. --connection-timeout TIMEOUT Specify a connection timeout TIMEOUT (in seconds). --request-timeout TIMEOUT Specify a request timeout TIMEOUT (in seconds).

SPECIFIC OPTIONS

-t, --instance-type INSTANCETYPE Specifies the type of instance to be launched. Refer to the latest Developer's Guide for valid values. Defaults to m1.small if not supplied. -g, --group GROUP [--group GROUP...] Specifies the security group (or groups if specified multiple times) within which the instance(s) should be run. Determines the ingress firewall rules that will be applied to the launched instances. Defaults to the user's default group if not supplied. -f, --format FORMAT The file format of the disk image (one of VMDK or RAW). [REQUIRED] -a, --architecture ARCHITECTURE The architecture of the image; (one of i386 or x86_64) Defaults to i386 if --instance-type is not supplied. -b, --bucket BUCKET S3 destination bucket name for the manifest. [REQUIRED, unless the option --manifest-url is specified] -o, --owner-akid OWNERAKID AWS Access Key Id of the owner of BUCKET. -w, --owner-sak SECRETKEY AWS Secret Access Key of the owner of BUCKET, used to sign the import -manifest URL. This parameter value is not sent to EC2. [REQUIRED] --prefix PREFIX Prefix for the manifest-file and disk-image file parts within the S3 bucket. [OPTIONAL] --manifest-url url Optionally, specify the URL for an existing import-manifest file already uploaded to S3 [OPTIONAL]. This option cannot be specified if --bucket has been specified. -s, --volume-size SIZE The size of the EBS volume, in GiB (2^30 bytes), that will hold the converted image. If this option is omitted, the required volume size will be computed from the image file. -z, --availability-zone ZONE Specifies the availability zone for the imported virtual machine. Run the 'ec2-describe-availability-zones' command for a list of values, and see the latest Developer's Guide for their meanings. -d, --description DESCRIPTION An optional, free-form comment that will be returned verbatim during subsequent calls to ec2-describe-conversion-tasks. Maximum length is 255 characters. --user-data USERDATA Specifies the user data to be made available to this instance. --user-data-file DATA-FILE Specifies the file containing user data to be made available to this instance. --subnet SUBNET If you're using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, this specifies the ID of the subnet you want to launch the instance into. --private-ip-address ip_address If you're using Amazon Virtual Private Cloud, you can optionally use this parameter to assign the instance a specific available IP address from the subnet. --monitor Enables monitoring of the specified instance(s). --instance-initiated-shutdown-behavior BEHAVIOR Indicates what the instance(s) should do if an instance shutdown is issued. The following values are supported: - 'stop': indicates that the instance should move into the stopped state and remain available to be restarted. - 'terminate': indicates that the instance should move into the terminated state. -x, --expires DAYS Validity period for the signed S3 URLS that allow EC2 to access the manifest Defaults to 30 days. [OPTIONAL] --ignore-region-affinity Ignore the verification check to determine that the bucket's S3 region matches the EC2 region where the conversion-task is created. --dont-verify-format Do not verify the file format. This is dangerous and may result in a failed conversion. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
