This topic describes instance families that do not support advanced VPC features.
- Instance creation: If advanced features are enabled on a VPC, you cannot create instances of instance families listed in the following table within the VPC.
- Instance upgrade or downgrade: If the instance type of an ECS instance supports advanced features and those advanced features are enabled on the corresponding VPC, the instance cannot be changed to an instance that belongs to instance families listed in the following table. The methods to change instance configurations include upgrading, downgrading, renewal and downgrading, and changing instance types.
When you enable advanced features on a VPC, the system automatically detects the instances within the VPC that must be upgraded or downgraded. Then, you can upgrade or downgrade configurations of these instances. For more information, see Change the instance type of a pay-as-you-go instance or Upgrade the instance types of subscription instances.
