@chris.favila I think this is the same issues as the last one I tagged you!


I have exactly the same issue and so I can not finish my lab. Is it possible to reset the lab access in order to finish it ?

EDIT : I already filled the form

Hi Imad. Kindly check item 10 of this FAQ. That error message shows that you are using a different instance type:

Failed to launch app [datascience-1-0-ml-m5-8xlarge-d94d3e7b23fb420a963b6f7a6446]

Please check that you are selecting what is mentioned in the notebook instructions. Hope this helps.

Hi Imad. I believe the lab instructions mention ml.m5.2xlarge but the error message posted above indicates ml.m5.8xlarge. There might be a misclick (or maybe just a glitch in the UI). I just did the lab yesterday and it worked with ml.m5.2xlarge as mentioned in the instructions.

As for the other issue, if you mean it takes a while to go to the AWS Console, it takes a while to load the environment for retakes. It usually takes around 20 minutes (as mentioned in the instructions) but can sometimes reach up to 30 minutes.
