#2900 new defect

EC2 spot instances don't work with AMI filters

Reported by: bgilbert Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: undecided
Version: 0.8.9 Keywords: ec2


If EC2LatentBuildSlave is configured with spot_instance=True, valid_ami_owners, and valid_ami_location_regex, the latent buildslave fails to substantiate. twistd.log says:

Traceback (most recent call last):

The problem appears to be that get_image() is never called in this code path. Instead, self.ami is passed directly to request_spot_instances().
