I’ve reached the limit for elastic network interfaces (ENIs) in an AWS region. How do I get more ENIs?

If you need more elastic network interfaces (ENIs), you can either delete unused ENIs in that AWS region, or you can request a higher limit for ENIs in that AWS region.

You can delete an unused ENI by detaching it from any resources the ENI is currently attached to, and then following the instructions at Deleting an Elastic Network Interface.

To request a higher limit for ENIs in an AWS region, contact AWS support.

Elastic Network Interface, ENI, create, delete, limit, increase
