RemoveRoleFromInstanceProfile

Make sure you do not have any Amazon EC2 instances running with the role you are about to remove from the instance profile. Removing a role from an instance profile that is associated with a running instance might break any applications running on the instance.

For more information about IAM roles, go to Working with Roles. For more information about instance profiles, go to About Instance Profiles.
