Managing outbound endpoints - Amazon Route 53

Managing outbound endpoints

To manage outbound endpoints, perform the applicable procedure.

Viewing and editing outbound endpoints

To view and edit settings for an outbound endpoint, perform the following procedure.

To view and edit settings for an outbound endpoint

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Route 53 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Outbound endpoints.

  3. On the navigation bar, choose the Region where you created the outbound endpoint.

  4. Choose the option for the endpoint that you want to view settings for or want to edit.

  5. Choose View details or Edit.

    For information about the values for outbound endpoints, see Values that you specify when you create or edit outbound endpoints.

  6. If you chose Edit, enter the applicable values, and then choose Save.

Viewing the status for outbound endpoints

To view the status for an outbound endpoint, perform the following procedure.

To view the status for an outbound endpoint

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Route 53 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Outbound endpoints.

  3. On the navigation bar, choose the Region where you created the outbound endpoint. The Status column contains one of the following values:

    Creating

    Resolver is creating and configuring one or more Amazon VPC network interfaces for this endpoint.

    Operational

    The Amazon VPC network interfaces for this endpoint are correctly configured and able to pass inbound or outbound DNS queries between your network and Resolver.

    Updating

    Resolver is associating or disassociating one or more network interfaces with this endpoint.

    Auto recovering

    Resolver is trying to recover one or more of the network interfaces that are associated with this endpoint. During the recovery process, the endpoint functions with limited capacity because of the limit on the number of DNS queries per IP address (per network interface). For the current limit, see Quotas on Route 53 Resolver.

    Action needed

    This endpoint is unhealthy, and Resolver can't automatically recover it. To resolve the problem, we recommend that you check each IP address that you associated with the endpoint. For each IP address that isn't available, add another IP address and then delete the IP address that isn't available. (An endpoint must always include at least two IP addresses.) A status of Action needed can have a variety of causes. Here are two common causes:

    • One or more of the network interfaces that are associated with the endpoint were deleted using Amazon VPC.

    • The network interface couldn't be created for some reason that's outside the control of Resolver.

    Deleting

    Resolver is deleting this endpoint and the associated network interfaces.

Deleting outbound endpoints

To delete an outbound endpoint, perform the following procedure.

Important

If you delete an outbound endpoint, Resolver stops forwarding DNS queries from your VPC to your network for rules that specify the deleted outbound endpoint.

To delete an outbound endpoint

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Route 53 console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/route53/.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Outbound endpoints.

  3. On the navigation bar, choose the Region where you created the outbound endpoint.

  4. Choose the option for the endpoint that you want to delete.

  5. Choose Delete.

  6. To confirm that you want to delete the endpoint, enter the name of the endpoint, and then choose Submit.
