Confirming an Instance Is Running an AMI Associated with a Product Code
If you have created a product for others to use with their AMIs (the supported AMI scenario), you might want to confirm that a particular AMI is associated with your product code and a particular instance is currently running that AMI.
You must be the owner of the product code to successfully call ec2-confirm-product-instance with that product code.
Because your customers don't own the product code, they should describe their instances to confirm their instances are running with your product code.
To confirm an instance is running an AMI associated with your product code
Enter the following command:
<product_code>is the product code and
<instance>is the instance.
If the AMI is associated with the product code,
true is returned with the AMI owner's
account ID. Otherwise,
false is returned.
