Before Starting!

Icon

Before starting this process. Please VERIFY that all the needed AMIs and Database Snapshots are present BEFORE terminating any instances. If the AMIs/Snapshots are missing for any reason, then there will be no way to recover the demo instance without recreating it from scratch.

The Snapshot and AMI names are in yellow boxes in their respective sections.

Terminate Instances

Disable EC2 Termination Protection

Right click on the instance and select "Change Termination Protection" from the menu.

Confirm the action.

Terminate OLEFS and Docstore Demo EC2 Instances

Right click on the instance and select "Terminate" from the menu.

Terminate the ole-demo-oracle RDS Instance

Right click on the instance and select "Delete" from the menu.

Decline creation of the final snapshot. (We already have one.)

Right click on the snapshot and select "Restore From DB Snapshot".

Fill out the resulting window as shown. Items which need to be entered/changed are highlighted.

Set Instance Attributes

Amazon RDS does not allow setting of some attributes when restoring from a snapshot. So, after the instance has completed starting up, you must perform the steps below.

Right click on the instance and select "Modify".

  • Select the ole-rds-servers security group (only)
  • Turn off the backup retention period (set to zero)
  • Check "Apply Immediately"

Wait for the database to complete modifications before starting the next steps.

Fill out the Tags screen as shown.

On the next screen, ensure that it is using the "ole" keypair.

Associate Elastic IP Address

The OLE Demo Application server uses an Amazon EC2 Elastic IP address which allows us to assign that IP address to newly created instances and not have to redefine DNS.

Select the "ole-demo" instance from the drop-down list and associate it.
