Enabling Application-Aware Processing
To enable application-aware processing, at the Guest Processing step of the wizard, set the Enable application aware snapshots toggle to On.
If you plan to create transactionally consistent backups using application-aware processing, consider the following:
- Application-aware processing is available only for EC2 instances running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 or later.
- The backup appliance must have outbound internet access to the SSM service.
- The IAM role used for EC2 instance backup must have permissions to communicate with the SSM service.
For more information on the SSM service, see AWS Documentation.
