We apologize in advance for any incorrect / mute wording; I am extremely new to all this.
I lost the private key of an EC2 instance that I had previously executed and I am trying to follow the instructions listed in the "Connecting to your Linux Instance if you lose your private key" section. in the link below. In short, it tells me to create a temporary instance using the same AMI as the original instance, and then "from the temporary instance, mount the volume you attached to it. 39, instance in order to access its file system ".
I got up at 9c:
Ubuntu @[ip]: ~ $ lsblk NAME SHIFT: MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT xvda 202: 0 0 8G 0 disk Vxvda1 202: 1 0 8G 0 part / xvdf 202: 80 0 8G 0 disk Xvdf1 202: 81 0 8G 0 part loop0 7: 0 0 12.7M 1 loop / snapshot / amazon-ssm-agent / 495 loop1 7: 1 0 87.9M 1 loop / snap / kernel / 5328 Ubuntu @[ip]: ~ $ sudo mkdir / mnt / tempvol Ubuntu @[ip]: ~ $ sudo mount -nouid / dev / xvdf1 / mnt / tempvol mount: wrong type of fs, wrong option, bad superblock under / dev / xvdf1, code page or program missing, or other error In some cases, useful information can be found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or if.
Typing "dmesg | tail" gives me:
[ 626.631886] EXT4-fs (xvdf1): Unrecognized "nouuid" mount option or missing value
I searched on Google but I found nothing useful. What am I doing wrong?
Thank you again for your help; pleased to provide any more relevant information.
