Does Aurora PostgreSQL Serverless v2 support exporting snapshots to S3?


I am trying to export a snapshot to an S3 bucket, from our Aurora Postgres Serverless v2 cluster. I keep getting the following error message: "The specified db snapshot engine mode isn't supported and can't be exported."

AFAICT from the user guide, Serverless v2 does support exporting snapshots to S3:

Our engine is Aurora PostgreSQL, version 10.21, region is eu-west-1, encrypted.

You have mentioned that using postgreSQL version 10.21 but this is not a supported version for serverless v2.

serverless v2 is supported on following postgreSQL versions as of now. 13.6, 13.7, 13.8, 13.9, 14.3, 14.4, 14.5, 14.6

Please check if you are using v2, if not then please upgrade to one of supported version as export snapshot to S3 is available only in V2 , not in serverless V1.
