[AWS] Update the instance type without starting over?


  • Hi everyone!

    Well i have been testing out AWS pfsense for a few weeks and now it's time to boost the performance on the AWS instance. I was using the micro instance to see if it would work well with our setup. The micro / nano installs only have a through put of 150mbit. We need to boost that up a little to 400-500mbit. So the we want to use a t3a.medium instance.

    Issue is when you go to "change instance type" and launch the machine it goes into the "VLAN SETUP" Do VLANS need to be setup on the console which we can not interact with!

    Is there anything we can do not to launch a fresh instance and start again (apart from backing up the XML).

    Any help is appreciated.
