Converts a running EBS DB instance to be a slave of an existing (and currently running) Master DB that uses the non-EBS MySQL ServerTemplates.
The purpose of this RightScript is to facilitate the live migration from a non-EBS based MySQL ServerTemplates, to EBS based ones. By booting an EBS ServerTemplate (with INIT_SLAVE_AT_BOOT=false) and then executing this initialization RightScript, one creates a live replicating slave server (that uses an EBS volume), from a non-EBS master without any downtime. Once the EBS slave is completely in sync with the non-EBS master, we can fully migrate the DB system by promoting it, launching a new EBS slave, initializing it (once the initial snapshot it completed), and then terminate the original non-EBS master.
