Step 7. Configure Parameter and Option Groups
[This step is available if you have selected the Restore to a new location, or with different settings option at the Restore Mode step of the wizard.]
At the Instance Configuration step of the wizard, you can associate RDS instances with parameter and option groups:
- In the RDS instance list, select the necessary RDS instance and click Edit.
- In the Group window, do the following:
- From the Parameter group drop-down list, select the parameter group with database engine configuration values that will be applied to the restored RDS instance.
For a parameter group to be displayed in the drop-down list, it must be created in advance as described in Creating a DB parameter group.
- From the Option group drop-down list, select the option group with database configuration values and security settings that will be applied to the restored RDS instance.
For an option group to be displayed in the drop-down list, it must be created in advance as described in Creating an option group.
- Click OK.
You can select only default Amazon parameter and option groups and those groups that are compatible with the database engine and version of the original instance.
