vpc-classic-v1.2.1.template issues

So I deployed this template exactly as described on the site. I kept all the default pre-populated settings where possible and used my own S3 buckets. Tried it both with and without nat gateways. This is with 3 AZ in us-east-1. 

All the AWS artifacts get created, the nested stack gets created, but the firewalls do not! 

I checked the logs from the lambda and the only error in init.py that I see is :


An error occurred (NoSuchKey) when calling the GetObject operation: The specified key does not exist.


The bucket is in the same region. I've populated all the required files as per the article.

Apparently the error is not related. I deleted the stack and re-created it exactly the same way and this time it create the firewalls. Go figure.

OK, Upon further investigation I didn't choose all the default values. The firewalls weren't being created because their instance type isn't supported by AWS Market place. The template lists 2 instance types as allowed parameters that shouldn't be there and also is missing 2 instance types that should be allowed.


Instance types that should be removed as not supported.

c3,xlarge and c4.xlarge

Instance types that should be added.

c3.8xlarge and c4.8xlarge
