reset-instance-attribute

Description

Resets an attribute of an instance to its default value. To reset the kernel or ramdisk , the instance must be in a stopped state. To reset the sourceDestCheck , the instance can be either running or stopped.

The sourceDestCheck attribute controls whether source/destination checking is enabled. The default value is true , which means checking is enabled. This value must be false for a NAT instance to perform NAT. For more information, see NAT Instances in the Amazon Virtual Private Cloud User Guide .

Warning

You can only reset the following attributes: kernel | ramdisk | sourceDestCheck . To change an instance attribute, use modify-instance-attribute .

Possible values:

  • instanceType
  • kernel
  • ramdisk
  • userData
  • disableApiTermination
  • instanceInitiatedShutdownBehavior
  • rootDeviceName
  • blockDeviceMapping
  • productCodes
  • sourceDestCheck
  • groupSet
  • ebsOptimized
  • sriovNetSupport
  • enaSupport

--dry-run | --no-dry-run (boolean)

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation . Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation .

--instance-id (string)

The ID of the instance.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
