How to create an AMI excluding some volume in Amazon Web Services


Hi,
I have an EC2 Instance of linux. In that Instance another EBS volume /dev/sdh is attached. Now when I create an AMI from that instance with EC2 API Tools. It creates 2 snapshots. Now my question is, How can I create AMI of that instance with only 1 snapshot. I dont want the snapshot of my attached volume(/dev/sdh).

On the web console, select the instance and click the action "Create Image (EBS AMI)". In the pop-up, click the "Remove [X]" option on the undesired volume (the root volume cannot be removed here). Then click "Yes, Create". The instance will be shutdown to Stop and restarted after the snapshot of the root remaining volume(s) is taken.
