Summary0016614: No Centos 8 AMIs
DescriptionI'd like to request Centos 8 AMI images. You currently provide them for Centos 6 and 7, but not 8:

The ZFS on Linux project uses Centos AMIs for our automated testing. We currently can't release Centos 8 ZFS RPMs, since we have no way to test them without the AMIs:

We really need to get this resolved there a way that I can assist building the image?

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 AMI was built by Amazon Web Services. They have been available since July 2019. has built the previous official AMI.
I am assuming it is not a technical issue to build a certified AMI, but one of priority.

This is in the Cloud Instance SIG purview -
There's a kickstart file for a generic CentOS 8 cloud image in this pull request:

There's also an outstanding pull request for an Azure image kickstart file for CentOS 8

I'm sure they would be happy to accept changes to build an AMI, should someone create one.

I tried to (and turned off BLS) and when attempting to import to AWS (amazon-import), it fails with

Unsupported kernel version 4.18.0-80.el8.x86_64

Any way to fix this?

I got the same's a bit funny since I installed a RH 8.0 in AWS which is running the same kernel version the only difference is that the RH kernel is tagged with RH in the end.

I ended up following this article which works really well.

If you made a CentOS 8 image and uploaded it to AWS via, I will try it out. Thanks

It works just make sure that you get both cloud-init.noarch and cloud-utils-growpart.noarch installed without cloud-utils-growpart.noarch changing the EBS disk size wont be discovered by Centos.
