This morning we had one scheduled task failure - "Error: Instance not in a running state 5 minutes after asking EC2 to start it"

Please can you confirm if this was indeed a fault at AWS end?

    This seems like an Amazon EC2 issue. Even five minutes after making the call to start the instance, the instance did not transition to a running state. The error code returned by Amazon EC2 when we did a DescribeInstance to check its state was "Server.InternalError: Internal error on launch".
