Stopping then starting EC2 from command line

0 votes

I'm trying to stop and then immediately start (NOT REBOOT) my Amazon EC2 server from withinmy instance

I have CLI (Command Line Interface Tools) and am running a Windows 2012 server.

Basically, I want to ec2-stop-instances from a batch, and then ec2-start-instances right after. But I want the start-instances to run after a minute or so.

Is there a way to send the command and ask Amazon to wait a minute before it is run?

This way, running the batch script will stop then start the instance.

Again, I can't use reboot. For some reason, it does not work with my needs

I understand this post is 3 years old, but it is possible to do this now with the AWS CLI,

aws ec2 stop-instances --instance-ids

aws ec2 start-instances --instance-ids

This could also be done from a Lambda Function, and scheduled
