MCPd goes into a restart loop after a change to the AWS Instance Type.


The instance is not usable. There is no error message to indicate the failure.


This occurs in Virtual Edition (VE) after changing the underlying instance hardware in AWS.


You can save the configuration on the BIG-IP system, instantiate a instance of the desired type, and apply the saved configuration. Note: In later versions of the software (version 12.1.0 and later), if you have a PAYG or BYOL, you can change the instance as long as you have set up the AWS API keys.
