Failing to retrieve meta-data on instance

Following the module EC2 meta-data and user data, I cannot retrieve the metadata while connected to instance as root with the curl command curl http://IP_address/latest/meta-data.

The user bash script was imported when I created the instance.

EC2 instance returns: http error 404 – not found ; The requested URL was not found on this server

Is there something wrong with the sandobox instances ?

You can enable meta data for the instance from awscli. Also check to make sure you aren’t blocking this call via the instance’s iptables.
