First Run

With a configured EC2 Tools environment, now it’s time to create an AppScale image.

If not already there, SSH into the Vagrant box:

vagrant ssh

Then go into the appscale-tools repository:

cd /srv/appscale/repo/appscale-tools

From here you can bootstrap the image creation process using the command:


For more information on this command simply run it with the -h flag:

./bin/appscale-bootstrap -h

This command will take a while to run. Once it’s complete, you will see in the last few lines of the log the instance id and the image id that was created.

NOTE: The bootstrap script does not currently terminate the instance that is created in order to make an AppScale image. Please terminate it once you are done.

Create an AppScale Cluster
