Step 3. Choose Restore Mode
At the Restore Mode step of the wizard, choose whether you want to restore Amazon EC2 instances to the original or new location:
- To restore EC2 instances with initial settings to the original AWS Region, select the Restore to the original location option. Note that the original EC2 instance will be automatically powered off and removed from Amazon EC2 after the restore process completes successfully.
If you select this option, you will proceed to the Reason step of the wizard.
The Restore to the original location option is disabled if the IAM role that you specify differs from the role used to perform EC2 instance backup.
- To restore EC2 instances to a different AWS Region or with different settings, select the Restore to a new location, or with different settings option.
If you select this option, the Restore to Amazon EC2 wizard will include additional steps for specifying the target AWS Region and EC2 instance settings.
