Hello Ramesh, 

   I started to write to the SPOT developers, but you haven't given us enough context.
I see a rollback, requested by user, and not authorized for images.  If that makes sense
to you (I admit I have no AWS install experience) good, or else you probably ought to 
contact our Tech Support team to investigate/assist at a deeper level.

Even I am facing the same issue while deployment using AWS. I suspect the AMI image is either deprecated or unable to be found. I am using the default template vspot.template provided. Out of curious I did search for the AMI in the AWS Marketplace and public AMI list but couldn't find any of them across various regions that are menioned in the mapping. Any further help provided will be great. I am constantly investigating on this at the moment.....

Hi Anandan,

You need to contact the Support team, to give permissions for your amazon account to use the Template.
