"Old generation AWS instance is configured for remote site AWS"

Hello,

 

I am receiving the following alert:

 

"Old generation AWS instance is configured for remote site AWS. Follow KB 3861 to change the instance type to m3.2xlarge and cloud CVM configuration for better RPO/RTO."

 

The remote site was configured only about a week ago and it spun up an instance size of m2.2xlarge.

 

I cannot find any reference to the KB article 3861, or anything about changing the instance size. Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Many thanks,

 

Daniel

For future reference Nutanix support said it is not possible to migrate the data to a new remote site (when re-creating it), it must be replicated from the primary cluster again.

 

Nutanix support provided me a script to run to upgrade the instance type also - so if this is something you need probably best to log a support call.

Just as a followup to this, it seems that the aws machine generations are designated by the number following 'm'.

 

So m1, m2 etc. For whatever reason configuring the remote site provisioned an older generation instance. I'm in contact with Dell/Nutanix support to update the instance type, I'll try to remember to post back if it was successful and if existing data was preserved.
