|Summary||0000234: AWS Systems Manager integration not complete.|
|Description||From here you can see that the SSM Agent has been included in AlmaLinux AMIs https://almalinux.org/blog/almalinux-cloud-images-updates-september-2021/|
I've tried it , and since it is not officially supported by AWS yet, unlike RockyLinux, there are a few major issues.
The OS is not detected. See excerpt of /var/log/amazon/ssm/amazon-ssm-agent.log
2022-05-12 14:46:19 INFO [ssm-agent-worker] [StartupProcessor] Write to serial port: Amazon SSM Agent v3.1.338.0 is running
2022-05-12 14:46:19 INFO [ssm-agent-worker] [StartupProcessor] Write to serial port: OsProductName: NotAvailable
2022-05-12 14:46:19 INFO [ssm-agent-worker] [StartupProcessor] Write to serial port: OsVersion: NotAvailable
And because of that, Systems Manager operations that require knowing which Operating System is running, will fail.
Failed with run commands:
Request to liaise with AWS to make it officially supported.
|Steps To Reproduce||1 - Launch AlmaLinux instance with appropriate Instance Profile role for Systems Manager.|
2 - Wait for it to fully boot.
3 - Use Systems Manager Run Command to run these documents against the instance: AWS-RunPatchBaseline AWS-UpdateSSMAgent
|Additional Information||Inventory works but is not able to identify OS.|
Features that do not require identifying the OS work, like Session Manager and AWS-RunShellScript.
