The maintenance window is 02:00–06:00 by default and you can change it as required. To prevent service interruption, you are advised to set the maintenance window to off-peak hours.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner and select a region and a project.
  3. Click Service List. Under Database, click RDS. The RDS console is displayed.
  4. On the Instance Management page, click the target DB instance. In the DB Information area on the Basic Information page, click Change in the Maintenance Window field.
