You have a Linux EC2 instance that is not responding to requests and you can not connect to it via SSH. Using the EC2 console, you issued a command to stop the instance, but for the past 10 minutes the instance has been in the “stopping” state. What is the next step you should take?

  • Issue another stop action via the EC2 console, and choose the option to forcefully stop the instance.
  • Create an AMI image of the instance, and choose the option to take the image without restarting the instance.
  • Edit the instance properties and increase the instance size.
  • Contact AWS support. Any further actions could corrupt the file system.
