Summary0000234: AWS Systems Manager integration not complete.
DescriptionFrom 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.
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/systems-manager/latest/userguide/sysman-manual-agent-install.html

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:
AWS-RunPatchBaseline
AWS-UpdateSSMAgent

Request to liaise with AWS to make it officially supported.
Steps To Reproduce1 - 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 InformationInventory works but is not able to identify OS.
Features that do not require identifying the OS work, like Session Manager and AWS-RunShellScript.
