starcluster createvolume -n erik_DC_vol2 -m mkfs.xfs 50 us-east-1a
results in:
!!! ERROR - command not found on remote system: 'mkfs.xfs'


This error is due to the fact that the latest AMIs do not have the XFS utilities installed. I will install them in the next round of AMIs. Thanks for reporting :D


BTW, IIRC you can install them using:

$ apt-get install xfsprogs

You could then rebundle the AMI until the next round of AMIs are out.
