Launched an instance, runs OK, I can access it via ssh/ping etc. Launch a second instance from the same image and I can not access it via ssh/ping etc. Both instances are running OK.

On the second instance console shows:

2011-02-25 16:09:20,916 -[WARNING]: waiting for metadata service at (

I have not been able to access any new instance via ssh/ping after the first one which is still running OK.

Or you can just change the permission and use euca-reboot-instances...
