Sometimes, long decommissioning scripts may get interrupted during the shutdown process.
After a shutdown request is issued, Amazon forces the shutdown after 115 seconds if it has not yet completed.
If your decommission script takes longer than this to run, it won't finish completing since the instance will be terminated by Amazon.
