I was trying the existing AutoScaling Template given here ( however, I was provided with folowing response: Error: nova reported unexpected instance[LB_instance]

Is AWS::ElasticLoadBalancing::LoadBalancer type resource is not supported yet? If it is supported what might be the reason it's not spawning up?

It is supported (in a hacky sort of way - by spinning up a Nova server running HAProxy). It looks like you're getting an error from Nova - you're missing some of the log message but I'm guessing the next line says "status[ERROR]".

You'll need to check in Nova directly to find out what the error is. Bad networking setups are the usual culprit.

Also check that you have enough RAM to spin up the instance - nova fails in this way (with a not-that-obvious error output) when the hypervisor has insufficient resources for the requested nova instance flavor, a common problem in resource-constrained test environments.
