Usage of EC2 CLI

If you need a new machine for PanDA, get pre-clearance from Sergey Panitkin and Torre Wenaus. They need to confirm your request it fits in the budget


Someone needs to give you the credentials to connect. Don't make these public!
  • Access Key Id: Username
  • Secret Access Key: Password

Install AWS CLI

Follow the official instructions.

On MacOSX, if you already have python&pip installed, it's as simple as:

sudo pip install awscli
sudo pip install --upgrade awscli

Configure AWS CLI

Official configuration documentation

pb-d-128-141-50-158:sec fbarreir$ aws configure
AWS Access Key ID [None]: <YOUR ACCESS KEY ID>
AWS Secret Access Key [None]: <YOUR SECRET ACCESS KEY>
Default region name [None]: us-east-1   #Regions are in http://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/rande.html
Default output format [None]: text    #Can be json, text or table

This creates the folder ~/.aws/

pb-d-128-141-50-158:~ fbarreir$ cd ~/.aws/
pb-d-128-141-50-158:.aws fbarreir$ lls
total 16
-rw-------   1 fbarreir  staff   116 Feb 24 16:19 credentials # The credentials
-rw-------   1 fbarreir  staff    43 Feb 24 16:19 config # The region and output format settings. You can modify your config here directly.

You can have multiple profiles and more advanced settings, but at this point I don't need it. Please follow official documentation link above for more information.
