This topic describes how to add an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance to a deployment set or migrate an instance from one deployment set to another.


The instance is in the Stopped or Running state.


  1. Log on to the ECS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Instances & Images > Instances.
  3. In the top navigation bar, select a region.
  4. Find the instance for which you want to change the deployment set and choose More > Instance Settings > Change Deployment Set in the Actions column.
  5. In the Change Deployment Set dialog box, select the destination deployment set and set the Force Change parameter.
    Valid values of Forced Change:
    • Yes: allows the instance to be migrated to another host, which may cause the instance to restart.
    • No: does not allow the instance to be migrated to another host. The instance must remain on the current host, which may cause a failure to change the deployment set of the instance.
  6. Click OK.
