How do I restore a CloudHSM cluster from a previous backup?
Last updated: 2019-10-31
I want to restore my hardware security module (HSM) in my AWS CloudHSM cluster to a previous version.
CloudHSM periodically makes a backup of your cluster, and also automatically creates a backup when you delete an HSM. The backups are stored in an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket in the same AWS Region as your cluster.
If you don't need your HSM, you can delete it. When you are ready to use that HSM again, you can create a new HSM in the same cluster as the HSM that you deleted. If you deleted your cluster, you can create a new one from the backup. For more information, see AWS CloudHSM Cluster Backups.
Follow the instructions for Creating an AWS CloudHSM Cluster from a Previous Backup. Then, create an HSM in that cluster.
