I ran through the instructions to implement the AWS test instance, but got the following error:
2015-10-01 09:15:17 UTC-0400 ERROR Creating Auto Scaling group named: awseb-e-7sigf3mqmq-stack-AWSEBAutoScalingGroup-1X1M9ATMUHKRI failed Reason: The specified instance type can only be used in a VPC. A subnet ID or network interface ID is required to carry out the request. Launching EC2 instance failed.
It looks to like the step that is missing might be checking the “VPC” option on deployment. I didn’t make that change, I was afraid of the potential cost implications!
