FAQ

Q. I encountered a CREATE_FAILED error when I launched the Quick Start.

A. If AWS CloudFormation fails to create the stack, we recommend that you relaunch the template with Rollback on failure set to No. (This setting is under Advanced in the AWS CloudFormation console, Options page.) With this setting, the stack’s state will be retained and the instance will be left running, so you can troubleshoot the issue.

Important

When you set Rollback on failure to No, you'll continue to incur AWS charges for this stack. Please make sure to delete the stack when you finish troubleshooting.

For additional information, see Troubleshooting AWS CloudFormation on the AWS website.

Q. I encountered a size limitation error when I deployed the AWS CloudFormation template.

A. We recommend that you launch the Quick Start templates from the location we’ve provided or from another S3 bucket. If you deploy the template from a local copy on your computer or from a non-S3 location, you might encounter template size limitations when you create the stack. For more information about AWS CloudFormation limits, see the AWS documentation.

Q. Where can I find the TaskCat report?

A. The report for each TaskCat run is saved in the S3 bucket. The path to the S3 bucket is listed as the value for the TaskCatReports key in the Outputs section of your CloudFormation stack, as illustrated in Figure 2.
