Specific Configuration Considerations for Amazon EC2™

The following configuration tasks for AWS ECC resources are described in this section. They are unique to an AWS ECC resource instance and different for each recovery kit.

  • In Service. Brings a resource hierarchy into service on a specific server.
  • Out of Service. Takes a resource hierarchy out of service on a specific server.

The rest of this section explains how to configure your recovery kit by selecting certain tasks from the Edit menu of the LifeKeeper GUI. You may also select each configuration task from the toolbar.

  • Right-click on a global resource in the Resource Hierarchy Tree (left-hand pane) of the status display window to display the same drop down menu choices as the Edit menu. This is only an option when a hierarchy already exists.
  • Right-click on a resource instance in the Resource Hierarchy Table (right-hand pane) of the status display window to perform all the configuration tasks, except Creating a Resource Hierarchy, depending on the state of the server and the particular resource.
