Reboot a WorkSpace - Amazon WorkSpaces

Reboot a WorkSpace

Occasionally, you might need to reboot (restart) a WorkSpace manually. Rebooting a WorkSpace disconnects the user and then performs a shutdown and reboot of the WorkSpace. To avoid data loss, make sure the user saves any open documents and other application files before you reboot the WorkSpace. The user data, operating system, and system settings are not affected.

Warning

To reboot an encrypted WorkSpace, first make sure that the AWS KMS CMK is enabled; otherwise, the WorkSpace becomes unusable. To determine whether a CMK is enabled, see Displaying CMK Details in the AWS Key Management Service Developer Guide.
