|Work with the Eucalyptus Management Console / Work with Launch Configurations|
This page is accessed via the Actions (...) menu on the Manage Instances or Instance Detail page, and is pre-populated with values based on the selected instance that are not editable. A launch configuration is used to define the parameters for the new instances that are launched as part of your auto scaling group.
This panel allows you to enter a name for your new launch configuration. It also displays the platform, type, and keypair/security group for your launch instance; these values are derived from the instance you had selected in the Manage instances landing page and cannot be changed.
This panel allows you to specify network and security options for your new launch configuration.
This panel allows you to optionally specify advanced options for the new launch configuration. You can override the kernel and RAM disk IDs, enable monitoring, and adding additional storage, if applicable.
