Dependent Origination

authentication failed with amazon despite correct credentials in boto.cfg

Posted on: June 15, 2013

boto code reads from two key names “euca_access_key_id” and “euca_access_secret_key” from their own config file /etc/boto.cfg

however, both keys names “aws_something” in that file

to avoid change boto files, you can export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY in bashrc and boto code will check environment first before trying to fish values out of its own config files.
