AWS EC2 Instance should skip interface config in setup wizard
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.

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.

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.
