API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Associates a virtual interface with a specified link aggregation group (LAG) or connection. Connectivity to AWS is temporarily interrupted as the virtual interface is being migrated. If the target connection or LAG has an associated virtual interface with a conflicting VLAN number or a conflicting IP address, the operation fails.

Virtual interfaces associated with a hosted connection cannot be associated with a LAG; hosted connections must be migrated along with their virtual interfaces using AssociateHostedConnection.

In order to reassociate a virtual interface to a new connection or LAG, the requester must own either the virtual interface itself or the connection to which the virtual interface is currently associated. Additionally, the requester must own the connection or LAG to which the virtual interface will be newly associated.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to AssociateVirtualInterfaceAsync.
