An instance started in iso testing for alpha-1 did not have console output available:

RESERVATION r-d87ec0af 950047163771 default
INSTANCE i-78f57d0f ami-53321827 pending ec2-keypair.eu-west-1 0 m1.small 2010-06-02T00:43:58+0000 eu-west-1a aki-c35e74b7 monitoring-disabled ebs

The instance was reachable via ssh, and generally functional (passed tests run on the instance for the ud-simple-01 user data test).

The test waited for 240 seconds trying to collect console output for this instance. That is after other tests have been run, and the other instances have had their console output collected (here 5 other instances)

this was an ebs instance. In the EBS tests:
a.) instance is booted
b.) tests are run
c.) console data is collected (retrying and delaying for up to 240 seconds per instance)
d.) instance is shut down
e.) console data is collected
f.) instance is started
g.) console data is collected

The consoles in both e and g did contain data. What is particularly interesting here, is that 'e' contained only data *after* shutdown was issued. Normally , that would contain all messages to the console for the instance.

I will attach the console logs here.
