I’ve been developing with my own standalone copy MusicBrainz running in AWS for the past year or so but need to switch to a RT_SLAVE configuration with packet replication, and as I understand it I’ve got to start from scratch as there’s no good way to change configuration in an existing system. While I installed from first principles last time into AWS and could therefore certainly do the same for my new system, I saw there was a new OVA file for a slave-configured system, but that it came with this warning:
“If you are using Amazon EC2 you can not use this virtual image and will instead have to follow the steps outlined in the source code INSTALL.md”
Can anyone tell me why this is the case? And would the same issue prevent me from simply exporting a local image from a machine in my local VirtualBox environment that I have seeded from this OVA file and have already brought up to date with replication and indexed, and then importing that into AWS? Many thanks!
