C7i.xlarge lacking availability on Rocky Linux 9 (Official) image

Can we please add support for c7i.xlarge on the official Rocky Linux 9 AWS Marketplace? AWS Marketplace: Rocky Linux 9 (Official) - x86_64

This feels like someone forgot to click a checkbox somewhere. c7i.large, c7i.2xlarge, and seemingly all other c7i instances (except metal) are supported. I frequently use xlarge size instances so this would be very useful to me.

Here is the message that I receive when attempting to provision a c7i.xlarge instance using

“Error: creating EC2 Instance: UnsupportedOperation: The instance configuration for this AWS Marketplace product is not supported. Please see the AWS Marketplace site for more information about supported instance types, regions, and operating systems.”

And we can see that c7i.xlarge is greyed out from the UI


I’ve also been encountering this, and agree with bdelamatre that it seems like missed check box type situation.

Is there a process or person to reach out regarding situations like this one for the AWS marketplace images?

We have put in the request for AWS to enable those instance types. It may or may not be instant as some requests such as these require approval. Give it at least 24 to 48 hours and check back to see if that instance type can be used. If it’s still not usable, we’ll check the where the process is at that point.

Hey @bdelamatre and @tmeyer - AWS has approved this request and I am now seeing c7i.xlarge in the instance type list.
