Before exporting your snapshot, keep the following in mind:
The exported snapshot doesn't retain the public or private IP address from the Lightsail instance.
The export process works only one way. It's not currently possible to export instances from Amazon EC2 back to Lightsail.
For Windows Server 2016 and later operating systems, you might receive a "Password not available" error message when logging in to the EC2 instance for the first time. If you receive this error, use the same credentials you used for the Lightsail instance to log in to the exported EC2 instance. You can change the password after the initial log in.
3. Open the Snapshots tab of the home page and expand the dropdown list for the Lightsail instance that you want to export.
4. Open the snapshot menu (the vertical dots on the far-right), and then select Export to Amazon EC2.
5. Review the information in the dialog box, and then choose Yes, Continue.
Note: Depending on the size and configuration of the source Lightsail instance or block storage disk, the export might run for a long time. To check the progress of your export, use the Lightsail Task Monitor menu. Select the two gears at the top of the page to access Task Monitor, and then select your task name from the drop-down menu.
