Hello - we are testing full instance restores of EC2 and VMware to EC2. Both VMs fail with the following error:
Import task failed. FirstBootFailure: This import request failed because the instance failed to boot and establish network connectivity..Please refer http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/VMImportTroubleshooting.html for further troubleshooting.
Am I to assume this is something with the source instance or possibly the permissions to finish the import? We created all the necessary roles and applied them to the user we created. The other thought is Windows licensing?
My user in my test environment is assigned the admin role (I know - insecure) and my restore finished successfully. I also created and assigned the vmimport role to this user.
Any pointers on this would be appreciated!
Commserve and VSA are running in AWS so I don’t think we have firewall issues. Backups run just fine.
