After running a Juju environment for some time, now machine 0 has got status: "agent-state: not-started" that has persisted for some time now and it is unable to deploy any new machines.

"Juju ssh 0" gives Waiting for machine to come up". I have also tried rebooting it from Amazon EC2 console without any change.

What do I do to to get it up again?

I am able to log into the machine using "ssh ubuntu@[public IP]", and /var/log/juju/machine-agent.log says: Failure: txzookeeper.client.ConnectionTimeoutException: could not connect before timeout Same error in /var/log/juju/provision-agent.log in addition to: "2013-03-25 11:00:46,661: juju.agents.provision@INFO: Stopping provisioning agent" – Marius K Mar 25 '13 at 11:03
Zooinspector also works from machine 0. – Marius K Mar 25 '13 at 13:10

Seems like I experienced the following bug:

Workaround is to run sudo restart jujud-machine-0 after ssh-ing into it directly using ssh ubuntu@[public IP], where public IP is found from the machine list (juju status).
