QA:Testcase EC2 AMI Validation
A simple validation test case for Fedora images on Amazon EC2, the specific actions used after spawning the instance are not important as anything beyond successfully spawning an instance from a Fedora AMI is covered by other test cases not specific to EC2.
More documentation on interacting with EC2 is available in the Fedora Cloud Guide.
- Get an AWS account (the approval process can take hours)
- Make sure that your security group allows for SSH (default tcp port 22)
- Log in to the AWS Management Console
How to test
- Obtain the AMI id of the newest Fedora image from the list of Fedora AMI ids.
- Search for and select the desired AMI on the IMAGES/AMIs section of the EC2 console
- Launch an instance with the AMI under test
- Log in to the launched AMI using the ec2-user user and the SSH keypair selected during instance launch
- Using a workflow you are familiar with, install packages and verify basic functionality
- The AMI launches successfully
- You can login to the instance over SSH as ec2-user and you have sudo access
- You can install packages from the yum repositories
- The instance doesn't crash or show any errors that aren't present in a bare-metal system
