Dear Bioconductor,

I am attempting to follow the instructions here to configure a StarCluster for running the Bioconductor AMI as a cluster.

But I am getting an error when I try to start a cluster. The error is a Python stack trace which seems to indicate AWS cloud refused to authenticate my key. I tried creating a key with "starcluster createkey" and the same error turned up.

(I couldn't create a key, so I tried using my regular AWS key and neither seems to work.)

Is this a StarCluster problem? Should I send them a question? Am I think only one it happens to? Do you still recommend using StarCluster? Is it still an active project? (The fact that I had to install Python 2.7 to build it is not encouraging.) Is there a newer better way to do this?

- Sam

Hi Sam,

I suspect a configuration error, could you post the stack trace or your starcluster config file (without AWS secret/access keys).

StarCluster is a little old. Look info CfnCluster: .
