A new instance with the historical data is cloned based on the backup file of an existing instance or a specified time. The new instance has the same whitelist settings, SQL audit settings, threshold value alarm settings, backup settings, and parameter settings as the existing instance. The data and accounts in the new instance are the same as the historical data in the backup file.
When you create a clone instance, the master instance must meet the following conditions:
- The instance is running and not locked.
- The instance does not have an ongoing migration task.
- To clone an instance by time, log backup must have been enabled.
- To clone an instance by using a backup set, the master instance must have at least one backup set.
Note To create a clone instance using a sub-account, ensure that you have authorized the sub-account. For more information, see Authorization for RDS instances.
