EC2 API Server for AWS Pre-authorized Virtual Vcanner

Discussion created by nenadyan f on Aug 14, 2019

Does anyone know how the EC2 API server is assigned to the AWS pre-authorized virtual scanner? We have one virtual scanner set up in the East region and one for the West region. For some reason, when we run EC2 scans for the West region assets, the West region scanner keeps trying to resolve the instances IP against ec2.us-east-1.amazonaws.com instead of the west one which results to no live IP found for the scan.

We worked with the network team and the platform team but couldn't figure out why the West region scanner is going to the East region EC2 API server and where it is defined for the scanner. Any help is greatly appreciated.
