Installation Stalled at "Running Network Connectivity and Throughput Tests..."

Hello,

I new to Vertica. I''m trying to setup a aws cluster using the AMI at https://aws.amazon.com/amis/hp-vertica-analytics-platform-6-1-2-0-1374507686 and following the documentation at https://my.vertica.com/docs/6.1.x/PDF/HP_Vertica_6.1.x_Vertica_AWS.pdf.

I manage to get all the three instances running. However the following problems occurred:

#1. The manual is missing the configuration of an route in the Route Table: Destination=0.0.0.0/0 and Target the internet gateway (something like igw-xxx)

#2. The Amazon provided DNS does not seam to work, I had to manualy add to /etc/hosts the DNS entries. I do not intend to left this config like this but was the only way the install script allows me to continue the installation
#3. The command specified in the documentation does not seam to work I had to change it from:
/opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica -s 10.0.3.100,10.0.3.101,10.0.3.98,10.0.3.99 -i ~/tst-key-pair.pem -L CE
to:
/opt/vertica/sbin/install_vertica -C -s 10.0.3.100,10.0.3.101,10.0.3.98,10.0.3.99 -i ~/tst-key-pair.pem -L ~/license.key -r vertica-6.1.2-0.x86_64.RHEL5.rpm
After all this tiny changes the install script stops at:
Running Network Connectivity and Throughput Tests...
Waiting for 1 of 3 sites... 
I have missed something in the instance setup? What can I do to trace back the root of the problem?
