Basically, we had a server issue and wanted to backup the instance via image creation.
The root EBS backed up pretty quick however, the larger external attached image was taking a while (still going ~40%). Since the primary one was done, we thought it would be ok to reboot the ec2 instance so we clicked reboot and confired - however, nothing happend.
We then tried to do it again ~5 minutes later but again nothing happened.
Suddenly the server started working again (accepting connections etc.) so really don't want the server to be rebooted.
So I guess the question is:
After the snapshot is completed will the servers restart?
