How do I create a custom AMI from Bamboo AMI

Every time I've attempted this in the last two weeks is the same issue:

Run through steps here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Creating+a+custom+elastic+image, spin up server, configure, run prepareInstanceForSaving.sh, save AMI instance.

Associate new instance with bamboo, watch as it spins up and down over and over with the log message

This instance has not been started by Bamboo and will be shut down immediately.


How can I correct this?

Self inflicted wound - I had a file reference that pointed to a missing (since deleted) file in profile-extras.sh which was injected into /opt/bamboo/profile.sh - this then caused that source to fail in testIfStartedFromBamboo.sh and exit with a -1.
