I'm going through a license update to add seats; to implement this, I'm having to terminate my instance and start a new one (license update is via BYOL). I need to download several of the backups because I've been told that the snapshots will be deleted when I terminate the instance. I'm obviously not going to download all of them, but I do want several regularly timed ones and some critical time points. Is there a quick way to download these? I was thinking of attaching snapshots to a volume and downloading through an SSH terminal. Thoughts?
Unrelated, does anyone have an approximate timeline on how long it takes for the host name to be released so I can snag the same one?
