Much appreciated - thanks again for the diagnosis and helping me confirm that I was not fat-fingering anything on my end!
Currently I have a c3.4xlarge instance that booted directly from the AWS console using the current AMI referenced on the cloudlaunch page. It's waiting at the cloudman admin interface for my currently running cluster to finish the EBS snapshot process needed to instantiate a shared cluster. I just need to feed it the shared cluster string but the EBS snapshot is going pretty slowly. If I run into issues I'll tear down my hand-launched version and will go back to cloudlaunch and c3.8xlarge. Thanks!
