AWS Auto Scaling Group (ASG) and EBS Volumes

Hello Experts:

I am working on setting up an AWS EC2 instance with auto scaling group (ASG) with an attached EBS volume.  When testing ASG, when the EC2 is replaced, two things happen:

1) The EBS volume is not automatically attached, and mounted to the new EC2.

2) If the EBS volume is in a different AZ (us-east-1a, for example), and the new EC2 comes up in a different AZ (us-east-1b, for example) the new EC2 does not see the EBS volume to attach it (even manually).

Is there a way how I can get the two steps done above while still using ASG and an EC2 with attached EBS volumes?

Thank you
