Changing the AS Configuration for an AS Group


If you need to change the specifications of ECS instances in an AS group, changing the AS configuration used by the AS group is an easy way to help you get there.

Effective Time of New AS Configuration

After you change the AS configuration for an AS group, the new AS configuration will not be used until any ongoing scaling actions are complete.

For example, if there is a scaling action ongoing for an AS group, and you change the AS configuration of the AS group from as-config-A to as-config-B, as-config-A is still used for the instances that are being added in the ongoing scaling action.

as-config-B will take effect in the next scaling action.
