Do not get software access option after launching a SAS University instance on Amazon EC2

I was just on SAS Studio yesterday and today the screen to launch is completely different.  I attached a screenshot

 

I didnt find the quick start guide helpful at all.  Launching with 1 click, I was forced to choose a key pair.  I could only bypass key pair with manual launch. 

 

Also, the guide did not indicate what I am supposed to choose for a security group (I assume version, region doesn't matter?

 

Can someone walk me through this please?  Thanks so much!

Hi, @michelles2. I'll give you the short answer! :-)  Amazon didn't previously require the user to create a keypair and we didn't need one for SAS University Edition. We have updated our documentation to indicate that the user will need to create a keypair. 

 

Here's are the updated docs:

Quick Start Guide:

http://support.sas.com/software/products/university-edition/docs/en/SASUniversityEditionQuickStartAW...

 

FAQ:

http://support.sas.com/software/products/university-edition/faq/AWS_runvApp.htm

 

I would encourage you to call SAS Technical Support at 1-800-727-0025 if you'd like somone to walk you through it. Perhaps, though, the updated documents will help. The bottom line is just that you need to create your own keypair and then the lauch process should work. 

 

We continue to monitor this and talk with Amazon about alternatives.

 

Thanks,

Randy
