When will the new i3 instances be supported in Cloudera Director? When I tried to launch a cluster with the i3 instances, it threw a generic error about how that instance type is not supported by the AMI I selected. I then made up a non-existent instance type and got the same error.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can configure Director to work with a new EC2 instance type without waiting for a new Director release. We implemented the AWS plugin this way because new instance types appear all the time, and you shouldn't have to wait for us to be able to use them.
Even once you configure for a new instance type, though, it's still possible that the AMI you chose is not available for it. For example, my favorite in us-east-1, ami-6d1c2007, can't use an i3 instance type when I try to launch one from the AWS console: "The instance configuration for this AWS Marketplace product is not supported."

Hey @Bill Havanki I edited the files and added these lines:
Unfortunately, while the provisioning of the instances was successful, the NVMe drives were NOT mounted. This is likely because they are at non-default locations like "/dev/nvme0n1"
