This section describes how to use existing automated backups to restore DB instances to a point in time.
Do not run the reset master command on MySQL DB instances within their lifecycle. Otherwise, an exception may occur when restoring a MySQL DB instance to a specified point in time.
The Create New Instance page is displayed.
Restoring to the original DB instance will overwrite all existing data and the DB instance will be temporarily unavailable.
A new DB instance is created using the backup data. The status of the DB instance changes from Creating to Available.
The new DB instance is independent from the original one. If you need read replicas to offload read pressure, create one or more for the new DB instance.
On the Instance Management page, the status of the DB instance changes from Restoring to Available.
A new restoration time range is available. There will be a difference between the new and original time ranges. This difference reflects the duration of the restoration.
After the restoration, the system will perform a full backup.
