Hey @sparse-gold-10561, I am trying to create a Storage Gateway, for that first i created the following resources : • Security Group • VPC Endpoint for Storage Gateway • EC2 Instance for Gateway using the latest region wise AMI and added a cache storage EBS Now when i try to create a Storage Gateway , its just running indefinitely for more than 1-2hrs without any result. This code when i try to run
pulumi up
it doesn't throw any error or any message its just hangs and the timer continues.
Copy code
dev_ap_south_1_sgw = aws.storagegateway.Gateway("dev-ap-south-1-sgw",
                                                     gateway_name="dev-ap-south-1-sgw",
                                                     gateway_timezone="GMT+5:30",
                                                     gateway_type="FILE_S3",
                                                     gateway_vpc_endpoint=vpc_endpoint.id,
                                                     maintenance_start_time={
                                                         "dayOfWeek": "5",
                                                         "hourOfDay": 0,
                                                         "minuteOfHour": 25,
                                                     },
                                                     gateway_ip_address="10.45.3.42",
                                                     # activation_key="BHTTD-V2V8L-DP9I6-TCSFV-0O6KU",
                                                     opts=pulumi.ResourceOptions(protect=False))
Tried both with IP (Public and Private) as well as Activation Key - Genereated by accessing the EC2 Instances via SSH
So wanted to know if i am missing any steps for activation and creating the Gateway endpoint

likely the AWS service can't connect to the IP address of the Appliance VM.. make sure https is open
Copy code
storage_gateway_research_fgw = aws.storagegateway.Gateway(
    "storage_gateway_research_fgw",
    gateway_name="storage_gateway_research_fgw",
    gateway_timezone="GMT-5:00",
    gateway_type="FILE_S3",
    gateway_ip_address="172.17.8.39",
)
my code above looks similar to yours minus the vpc endpoint as we are not using one for this
o
Ok I kept the http port open, will try with https
s
oh.. also 8080

although that might be strictly for their hardware appliance
step 7

Okay will try these
Thanks adding the Ports in SG worked
How do i configure the Disk attached in EC2 to be used as Local Cache for Gateway ? is their a pulumi api for it or we manage it using boto3 ?
