This topic describes the advanced features supported by Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). These features include network access control lists (ACLs), custom route tables, and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) options sets. However, some Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance families do not support the advanced features of VPC. If a VPC contains one or more ECS instances that belong to these ECS instance families, you cannot configure the advanced features for the VPC.
Limits on ECS instance families
- If a VPC contains one or more ECS instances that belong to one of the following instance
families, you cannot configure the advanced features for the VPC.
Note When you configure an advanced feature for a VPC, the system automatically checks the ECS instances deployed in the VPC. If one or more ECS instances belong to one of the following instance families, you cannot configure the advanced feature for the VPC.
- If a VPC has an advanced feature configured, you cannot create an ECS instance that belongs to the instance families described in the following table. In addition, you cannot migrate such ECS instances from other VPCs to this VPC.
