ISAAC Gym does not run in headless mode on ISAAC SIM on aws

Dear forum members,

I set-up a ISAAC SIM in a docker container on an instance on AWS using the installation tutorial in the documentation.
3. Deploy to Cloud — Omniverse Robotics documentation

When running the app in the headless mode using: ./runheadless.native.sh
I get the following errors:

When trying to start the isaac-gym extension, the app crashes and i get the following error:

[133.956s] [ext: omni.kit.registry.nucleus-0.0.0] startup                                                                                                                   running process: ['/isaac-sim/kit/kit', '/isaac-sim/apps/omni.isaac.sim.python.gym.headless.kit', '--ext-folder', '/isaac-sim/kit/extsPhysics', '--ext-folder', '/isaac-sim/exts', '--ext-folder', '/isaac-sim/apps']                                                                                                                                   Omniverse Kit cannot be run as the root user without the --allow-root flag.                                                                                                 Running as root should not be necessary under most circumstances.

I looked up, the error message, but could not find the files, being used in other solutions to a similar problem.

Is it, because the Nucleus is not running on the same instance, or do I need to make other configurations?

Thanks in advance!

Hi - Sorry for the delay in the response. Let us know if you still having this issue with the latest Isaac Sim 2022.2.1 release.

Hi. Please try the latest Isaac Sim 2022.2.1 and share the log files if you still get errors.

When running in a container, you can connect to a remote Nucleus but Isaac Sim will access assets directly from the Cloud by default. See 7. Setup FAQ — Omniverse Robotics documentation.
