  • Thank you, I'll try it right now, I appreciate

  • Hey, please can you come to resolve the issue for me? i can't attach the volume to the new instance, I saw it needs to be the same zone but I cannot find the availability zone.

  • Find out what subnet the broken instance is in, you can see this in the details of the ec2 instance. Click on the subnet-id, then you can see what AZ it is in.
