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.


  1. Get an AWS account (the approval process can take hours)
  2. Make sure that your security group allows for SSH (default tcp port 22)
  3. Log in to the AWS Management Console

How to test

  1. Obtain the AMI id of the newest Fedora image from
  2. Search for and select the desired AMI on the IMAGES/AMIs section of the EC2 console
  3. Launch an instance with the AMI under test
  4. Log in to the launched AMI using the fedora user and the SSH keypair selected during instance launch
  5. Using a workflow you are familiar with, install packages and verify basic functionality

Expected Results

  1. The AMI launches successfully
  2. You can login to the instance over SSH as fedora and you have sudo access
  3. You can install packages from the yum repositories (For example, sudo yum -y install httpd.)
  4. The instance doesn't crash or show any errors that aren't present in a bare-metal system
