Automox Install failling on ec2 instances

Looking at the documentation, I cant seem to find if the automox agent is supported on all ec2 instance sizes? I know that certain software/agents cannot run on instances of certain sizes, is that the case for Automox agents? Attempting to narrow in on reason why ec2 is not accepting install through SSM.

The AX agent is very lightweight.  I am guessing there will be memory and CPU limits for operation and performance (running windows on a micro, for example, will be a miserable experience for anything) but there is nothing in the installer that would block the install.

I use t3.mediums / larges for windows and t3.micros / nanos for the linux EC2 (depending on the distro).  ARM is not technically supported though and the agent will not install on those (for Linux / Windows - Mac M chips are supported however).  T2 works also (I have upgraded in the last 6 months, but we still run t2’s).

What instance size / os are you using?
