I am trying to create an instance on AWS for the CSR1000v using the BYOL in the AWS Marketplace: https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/pp/B00EV8VWWM .
Once the instance comes online, I'm able to SSH into it using the keys associated. Then, following the instructions here, I try to apply a license to the Cisco instance.
Once I get to the reload step, the router reboots, but I'm never able to access the router again. I cannot ssh in using the key or username/password. I tried creating user-keys within AWS to create a user with a valid username password to no avail. My only recourse is to kill the instance and start a new one. Unfortunately, the new one will not have any of my settings.
Is there a way for me to persist the settings, or better yet, get back into the instance I've already created?
Any help would be appreciated.
