EC2: Downgrade m1.small to t2.micro

0 votes

I am trying to downgrade our m1.small instance to the new t2.micro instance.

When the instance is stopped, and I try to change instance type, it will not display the t2.micro as an option.

I suspect it has to do with the new way the t2 instances virtualize (PV vs. HMV).

Anyone has an idea on how to perform the downgrade? Is it necessary to take a snapshot/image of the m1.small instance, and start a new t2.micro instance?
