AWS ECS agent won't start
When I try to run the ECS agent, I get the following error in the ecs-init.log*:
[INFO] Agent exited with code 5 [ERROR] agent exited with terminal exit code
And in the ecs-agent.log* file I get this:
[CRITICAL] Data mismatch; saved cluster 'cluster1' does not match configured cluster 'cluster2'. Perhaps you want to delete the configured checkpoint file?
Any idea where is that checkpoint file?

I found the answer myself. The checkpoint file is located in this directory:
Just delete that json file and start the ECS agent again running
