Generating an Amazon AWS AMI on EC2

Amazon EC2 Create Image Menu

One of the easiest and most durable ways to install the shim is simply to run the shim installer recipe (shell script) as provided in the console for your server group, just once and then bundle that as an EC2 AMI for your server group.

After pasting the Userify installer into your server console, simply right-click on your instance in the AWS Console and choose Create Image from the Image menu.
