How Can We Edit Instances In a Managed Group
Here are the sequence of steps that you should follow:
1) Create a new instance template (with new updates on the existing template). You can use "Create Similar" option by selecting the existing instance template and update new settings.
2) Go to Instance Groups. Select the current live Instance Group and click on "Edit Group". Choose the new instance template from "Instance Template" drop down. Click Save.
3) Next Click on "Rolling Update" , choose "Max Surge" and "Max Unavailable" settings as desired. Click "Update" when done.
4) Click on the instance template group, you will see that the new temple is being applied now as per "Rolling Update" policy.
That’s It 🙂
Hope this helps!
Not the original poster but I followed your steps and it worked out perfectly! Thanks!
FYI: for some reason the "Rolling Update" didn’t work for me, but "Rolling Restart/Replace" did work (in case anyone else runs into the same problem).
