Collector Server failing health check

:man_facepalming: silly me, I forgot that the ami ID you need depends on your region.

You can get the ami ID to supply using the aws sdk as follows:

aws ec2 describe-images --owners amazon --filters "Name=name,Values=amzn2-ami-hvm-2.0.20231218.0-x86_64-ebs" --filters "Name=root-device-type,Values=ebs" --filters "Name=virtualization-type,Values=hvm" --filters "Name=architecture,Values=x86_64" --filters "Name=description,Values=Amazon Linux 2 AMI 2.0.20231218.0 x86_64 HVM ebs" --region eu-central-1

(Replacing the region with the one you’re using)

I believe this will get you just a single result, which will contain the ami ID you need to use. I didn’t test it on every region however, if you run into issues please report back.

Apologies for that oversight, hope this resolves it for you!
