Step 8. Configure Network Settings
[This step applies only 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 Network step of the wizard, select to which Amazon VPC a restored EC2 instance must be connected, a subnet in which the EC2 instance will be launched, and a security group — a virtual firewall for the restored EC2 instance.
- Select the necessary EC2 instance from the list and click Select.
- In the Network window, choose the Amazon VPC, the subnet and the security group.
For a VPC, subnet group and security group to be displayed in the lists of available network specifications, they must be created for the AWS Region specified at step 5 in the AWS Management Console as described in AWS Documetation.
If you restore EC2 instances to the AWS Outpost, for an Outpost subnet to be displayed in the Select Subnet drop-down list, choose the Amazon VPC that has one or more Outpost subnets.
