Rashim shows you how to
unlock a Snowball Edge device


I just received my AWS Snowball Edge. How do I unlock it?

First, download and install the Snowball client. Then, use the Snowball client to unlock the device.

Note: To unlock the device, you need the job manifest file and unlock code. After you download a copy of the manifest, you can find these values in a format similar to the following:

Job Manifest : JID2EXAMPLE-0c40-49a7-9f53-916aEXAMPLE81-manifest.bin
Unlock Code : 12345-abcde-12345-ABCDE-12345
