Requests a VPC peering connection between two VPCs: a requester VPC that you own and an accepter VPC with which to create the connection. The accepter VPC can belong to another AWS account and can be in a different region to the requester VPC. The requester VPC and accepter VPC cannot have overlapping CIDR blocks.

Limitations and rules apply to a VPC peering connection. For more information, see the limitations section in the VPC Peering Guide.

The owner of the accepter VPC must accept the peering request to activate the peering connection. The VPC peering connection request expires after 7 days, after which it cannot be accepted or rejected.

If you create a VPC peering connection request between VPCs with overlapping CIDR blocks, the VPC peering connection has a status of failed.
