FreeBSD on EC2

The following FreeBSD AMIs are available (additional obsolete AMIs are listed at the bottom of this page). For most users and applications, the FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE for Current Generation instances AMI will be the most appropriate one to use.

To use FreeBSD/EC2:

  1. Decide which types of EC2 instances you want to use. There are different FreeBSD/EC2 images for "Current Generation" EC2 instances (m3, c3, r3, i2, and t2) vs. "Previous Generation" EC2 instances (m1, m2, c1, and t1). You will almost always want to use the newer instance types; the only exception is if you already own previous-generation reserved instances.
  2. Decide which FreeBSD release you want. This will almost certainly be either FreeBSD 10.0 (lots of new functionality, improved performance, and the ability to use freebsd-update for system updates) or FreeBSD 9.2 (older but very extensively tested).
  3. Based on the above two decisions, and the EC2 region you're using, look up the AMI name in the table below.
  4. Launch the EC2 instance.
  5. If you're using FreeBSD 10.0, you can provide launch-time configuration settings via the EC2 "user-data" functionality and configinit.
  6. If you're using one of the "Previous Generation" AMIs, you may need to adjust your EC2 "security group" settings to allow incoming TCP connections on port 22 (EC2 thinks that those instances are "Windows" and sets default firewall rules for Windows).
  7. (Optional) Look at the EC2 instance console output ("Get System Log" on the EC2 console) for the SSH host keys. Note that you may need to wait about five minutes for these to appear. (You can also use my ec2-knownhost script to parse the EC2 console log and add keys to your ssh known_hosts file automatically.)
  8. SSH in as "ec2-user" (or the user you specified in the /etc/rc.conf parameters you provided via configinit) using the SSH key you created for EC2, and su to root (no password).
  9. You can now use the EC2 instance like any other FreeBSD system, with the exception that on versions prior to FreeBSD 10.0 you can't use FreeBSD Update to fetch kernel security updates (you'll need to manually rebuild and reinstall the XENHVM kernel).

EC2 quirks

In order to work with EC2, the FreeBSD AMIs are slightly modified from what you would have immediately after installing FreeBSD from a release CD:

Packaging new AMIs

The process of building FreeBSD AMIs from scratch is non-trivial; it is much easier to modify and re-bundle one of the existing FreeBSD AMIs:
  1. Launch the FreeBSD AMI you want to base your AMI on.
  2. Make your changes (installing packages, adjusting configurations, etc).
  3. Delete the file /root/.ssh/authorized_keys or /home/ec2-user/.ssh/authorized_keys (otherwise your SSH key will be able to log in to any instances launched from this AMI).
  4. Create the file /firstboot on 10.0-RELEASE or /root/firstboot on earlier releases (otherwise the AMI you create won't know to download the new SSH public key for logins).
  5. Stop the instance (but do not terminate it).
  6. Use the ec2-create-image tool or the "Create Image" command in the EC2 Management Console to create an AMI from the instance.
  7. Terminate the instance.

About the author

This page is maintained, and the FreeBSD AMIs were produced, by Colin Percival — a FreeBSD developer, a member of the FreeBSD Core team, and the FreeBSD Security Officer. Work to get FreeBSD working on cc1.4xlarge instances was sponsored by SegPub. Work to get FreeBSD 7.4 working on EC2, fix bugs, and improve network performance was sponsored by LineRate Systems. Work to get FreeBSD working on "defenestrated" Windows instances and to further improve network performance was sponsored by an anonymous donor.

Colin is available for consulting on FreeBSD/EC2 if anyone wants to support further work on FreeBSD/EC2. When he's not working on FreeBSD, Colin spends most of his time running his online backup service.


Obsolete AMIs

The following AMIs were released earlier (and remain available) but have been obsoleted by newer AMIs built from the respective branches. Using them is almost certainly a bad idea, since these contain bugs (on some 8.x and 9-CURRENT images, quite severe stability issues) which have been fixed in the newer AMIs.

On AMIs up to FreeBSD 8.3 and between FreeBSD 9.0 and 9.1-RC1, you need to SSH in as root instead of ec2-user.
