Problem description

RDS Database Backup fails in CloudRanger with the Error: Cannot create a snapshot because the database instance xxxyyyzzz is not currently in the available state. Retrying in 600 seconds

Cause

  • The RDS Database Instance is not started at the moment CloudRanger tries to create a snapshot.
  • This problem might occur if the Database is a scheduled Database that only gets started at specific times.

Verification

  • Go to your AWS account and try to create a snapshot of the RDS Database.
  • We expect this snapshot creation test to fail in AWS with the Error below: 
  • Database is in invalid state.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, ensure your RDS Database is started before the Backup starts in CloudRanger.
