Is it possible to change the AMI that will be used when scaling a cluster through Cloudbreak?
Here's the longer scenario:
- Using a custom AMI that has various hardening changes applied, let's call it AMI-11111
- I build a cluster using this AMI, everything is good.
- Over time, we apply various OS patches, primarily to address security vulnerabilities.
- If we need to scale the cluster in the future, it will use the original AMI, which will have the vulnerabilities. Instead, would prefer to use an updated AMI (i.e AMI-22222) that already has the security patches applied.
Is this possible? Or is there a better way to handle this scenario?
Nice! Is there a ballpark estimate on when 2.8 will be available? Not looking for an exact date or anything, just a sense for when it might be out. Thanks again
If you are willing to complete some very easy manual steps, there is another way to go, as Cloudbreak uses separate autoscaling groups for each hostgroup:
After these steps, all your subsequent upscales will use your new AMI.
Hope this helps!
