    I am trying to deploy vSRX on AWS and each time i try to deploy it it fails Instacne status check. If i understand this correclty it requires cloud init, does anyone have a smple of the cloud init conifg that needs to be put in user data? I am surprised it is not well documented.

    Cloud-init is not mandatory to deploy a VSRX instance on AWS.

    Can you try following the steps outilied in the deployment guide (https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/vsrx/information-products/pathway-pages/security-vsrx-aws-guide-pwp.html).

    This is a silly one; patience is everything, looks like I was not waiting enough time for the instance to come up. It does fail the AWS check at first but I guess it needs more time to boot up and finish up auto configuration. I left the instance for over 30 minutes and now I can reach it, the AWS network status check also changed to green. It is all good now.
