Error creating EKS Cluster with unsupported availability zone

I got this EKS crash while running convox rack install aws convox-test:

$ convox version
3.0.41

$ convox rack install aws

module.system.module.cluster.aws_eks_cluster.cluster: Creating…
Error: error creating EKS Cluster (convox-test): UnsupportedAvailabilityZoneException: Cannot create cluster ‘convox-test’ because us-east-1c, the targeted availability zone, does not currently have sufficient capacity to support the cluster. Retry and choose from these availability zones: us-east-1a, us-east-1b, us-east-1d, us-east-1e, us-east-1f

Now I’m not too sure what to do. Rerunning the command:

 $  convox rack install aws convox-test
ERROR: rack name in use: convox-test

Would it be possible to retry automatically with a different availability zone?

Also, how can I tidy up the resources that it already created and start over?





Here’s the full logs:

$ convox rack install aws convox-test

Not sure how to proceed. I could try with a different region (maybe us-west-2). But it would be great if Convox automatically tried a different EKS availability zone, or if I could configure this with an option.

I think I’ve figured out how to delete all the partially created resources. (NAT gateways, Elastic IPs, VPCs, Security Groups)

I had to delete everything from the VPC service (not EC2): https://console.aws.amazon.com/vpc/home
