Description
This article describes how to migrate obsolete Alibaba Cloud Product code to newer version using custom image from the obsolete instance.

The new instance creates using custom image will have same config setting as the original instance.
For BYOL product code, the new instance will also inherit the license file from old instance.
So both instances cannot run at the same time. 


Solution

Step1: Create a custom image from an instance.

  • Log on to the ECS console.
  • In the left-side navigation pane, choose Instances & Images > Instances.
  • In the top navigation bar, select a region.
  • Find the instance for which you want to create a custom image. In the Actions column, choose More -> Disk and Image -> Create Custom Image.
