PrivateLink Alignment

It is a little known fact, but a rather annoying fact, that the availability zones for a PrivateLink must align between the provider and consumer.


Provider is in availability zones: us-east-1a, us-east-1b, and us-east-1c Consumer is in availability zones: us-east-1b, us-east-1c, and us-east-1d

The consumer IPs can ONLY be deployed to us-east-1b and us-east-1c as those are the AZs the provider is deployed too.

This must be PHYSICAL availability zone. The availability zone us-east-1a is actually a virtual thing and maps to a physical availability zone. This mapping though can be different cross account. The describe-vpc-endpoints should tell you which availability zones you can deploy too as it handles the mapping into the account.
