Description

AWS EC2 instances should default to DHCP. EC2 instances are assigned IP addresses via DHCP. If you want to give the instance a static address, you will still need to configure the ENI in EC2. No need to configure this twice unless you are running the DHCPd services.

History

#1 Updated by Chris Buechler about 1 year ago

  • Subject changed from AWS EC2 Instance interfaces should default to DHCP to AWS EC2 Instance should skip interface config in setup wizard
  • Status changed from New to Confirmed
  • Target version changed from 2.3.1_2 to 2.3.2
  • Affected version changed from 2.3.1 to All

I presume updated subject is what you're referring to, as it does default to DHCP. It ought to not prompt users in the setup wizard to avoid confusing them.

#2 Updated by Danny Schuh about 1 year ago

Actually, I had skipped the initial setup wizard. I'm looking to eventually deploy this AMI w/o user interaction.

Then your WAN would be DHCP, that's the only possible config out of the box.

I believe that that was the case. I think that when I manually created the LAN interface, the addressing method was set to none for both v4 and v6, which is why I created this ticket. This is no doubt a side-effect of me not running the setup wizard. Perhaps a userdata-supplied array mentioned in feature request #6457 will help AWS users by not having to manually configure them post-launch.

I would normally close this bug at this point, but it seems that it can be better served to improve the setup wizard as you have pointed out.

#5 Updated by Chris Buechler about 1 year ago

oh, for LAN. Every additional interface defaults to "none", which is most appropriate. Yeah #6457 will address the remaining concern for AWS.
