Shutting down your gateway VM

You might need to shutdown or reboot your VM for maintenance, such as when applying a patch to your hypervisor. You shut down on-premises gateway VMs using your hypervisor interface, and Amazon EC2 instances using the Amazon EC2 console. When you power on your VM, remember to restart the gateway that runs on the VM.

Important

If you stop and start an Amazon EC2 gateway that uses ephemeral storage, the gateway will be permanently offline. This happens because the physical storage disk is replaced. There is no work-around for this issue. The only resolution is to delete the gateway and activate a new one on a new EC2 instance.
