It does work for me on OpenStack... Though here, it should be
/dev/xvda1, and not /dev/vda1, and I don't think that it is possible to
grow a partition in the AWS thing: you have access to a partition, not
to a full hard drive. So the only thing that should be done is

It did work for me (again, on OpenStack, but that's the same EC2
protocol and same IP address). Are you sure that you have configured
cloud-init correctly? (you can try to dpkg-reconfigure cloud-init to
