Issue/Introduction

We have asked to check the compatibility of IMDS V2 with IDM virtual appliance.

If we disable V1 will any of the IDM functionality be impacted?

 

What is IMDS service

Instance metadata is data about your instance that you can use to configure or manage the running instance. This normally includes information like  EC2 hostname, security-groups, temporary IAM credentials available through IMDS. More details related to IMDS can be found at this link. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/ec2-instance-metadata.html

Environment

Release : 14.4

Component : SIGMA-Identity Suite

Resolution

The Identity Suite Virtual Appliance is not affected by the IDMS version. There will be no impact to vAPP by disabling IDMS v1.
