Dear Bioconductor team,

I would like to copy the Bioconductor 3.5 AMI from its current region (us-east-1) to a new region. When trying to do so with the following command:

aws ec2 copy-image --source-image-id ami-9fe2fee4 --source-region us-east-1 --region us-west-2 --name "Bioconductor 3.5"

I receive the following error:

An error occurred (InvalidRequest) when calling the CopyImage operation: You do not have permission to access the storage of this ami

I found this question from 12 months ago, Copying Amazon Bioconductor AMI to another zone, where the Bioconductor 3.3 AMI snapshot was made public for copying.

Would it be possible to do the same for ami-9fe2fee4 (Bioc 3.5)?

Thank you,
Neal

We apologize for the delay.  We have made a copy of the Bioc 3.5 AMI for the us-west-2 region available with AMI ID: ami-99ea25e1  . This should be now accessible.

Yes, it is accessible and I am able to launch an instance from this AMI on us-west-2. Thank you!

Hi, is it possible to do the same with the latest (3.8 release) AMI?

Thanks!

To the same us-west-2 region or a different region?

Oh, sorry. us-west-2, please.

Sorry, from the other linked thread linked above, I was under the impression that if the image was made public (or something(?)) anyone could copy it to any region ... is that not the case?

Thanks so much for your help.

I've made the Release Bioc 3.8 R 3.5.2 (ami-0c056d672aeeb539b) snapshot also public. You should be able to copy the AMI to other regions now.
