    Hello BM.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Apologies. After reviewing other sections of the Amazon EC2 documentation, you also can’t stop an instance store-backed instances using the AWS Console. The STOP and START action are only supported in an Amazon EBS-backed instance.

    To understand it better, we can take a look at these statements. It says that “You can’t STOP and start an instance store-backed instance.” and if you are using the AWS Console, “If STOP is disabled, either the instance is already stopped or its root device is an instance store volume.” This means that if it is an Instance Store-backed EC2 instance, it does not support the STOP action. You can only TERMINATE it using the Console, CLI, and API.

    For more information, you might want to visit this AWS Documentation.

    https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/ec2-instance-lifecycle.html

    Also, based on this AWS CLI command reference: “You can’t stop or hibernate instance store-backed instances.”

    https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/reference/ec2/stop-instances.html

    I hope this helps.
