Step 5. Choose Restore Mode

In this article

    At the Restore Mode step of the wizard, choose whether you want to restore the selected EC2 instance to the original or to a custom location. If you select the Restore to new location, or with different settings option, specify the target AWS Region where the restored EC2 instance will operate.

    Important

    To restore to the original location, the IAM role specified at the Account step of the wizard must belong to the AWS account where the selected restore point was created.

    If you have AWS Outposts in your infrastructure, you can restore EC2 instances to an AWS Outpost. To do that:

    1. Select the Restore to new location, or with different settings option.
    2. From the drop-down list, select the AWS Region to which the AWS Outpost is connected.
    3. Click the link to the right of Select AWS Outpost.
    4. In the Choose AWS Outpost window, select the AWS Outpost where you want to restore the selected instances.
    5. Click Apply.

    Note

    Consider the following:

    • All objects residing in an AWS Outpost are encrypted.
    • An AWS Outpost supports a limited list of instance types.
