What happens when an ASG fails to create instances because you’ve reached your limit of instance types in that Region?
E.g. you’re getting this error:
Failed: Launching a new EC2 instance.
Reason: You have requested more instances (x) than your current instance limit of u allows for the specified instance type. Please visit http://aws.amazon.com/contact-us/ec2-request to request an adjustment to this limit. Launching EC2 instance failed.
So you put in a request to increase the limits. But what happens to the ASG – does it continue to try launching new instances – and when?
If you have multiple AZs and a single AZ is out of capacity it will try a few times then launch in another AZ.
But simply, yes, it will keep trying to launch in a Region.
