Can’t choose any other region besides us-east-1 when creating S3 bucket

Hey! When I try to create a bucket in a region that is not us-east-1, I get "Access Denied" message. It happened several times and the last was just a few minutes ago when doing the S3 replication lab; I tried to create a bucket in different regions to do the cross-region replication but in the end I had to replicate objects within the same region because us-east-1 was the only one I could choose.

Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance!

I’ve not been able to reproduce the error you saw. I’d make sure you’re using the correct bucket name and region which is specified in the lab. Not choosing the correct region is the only way I’m able to reproduce the error you saw. 

I hope this helps
