Changing the rescue mode of your Instance

Reviewed on 20 February 2024Published on 04 May 2023

The previous Instances rescue mode, which relied on bootscripts, was discontinued on May 31, 2023.

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Owner status or IAM permissions allowing you to perform actions in the intended Organization
  • An Instance
  • A valid API key

Updating rescue mode from the Scaleway console

  1. Click Instances in the Compute section of the side menu. The Instances page displays.
  2. Click the name of the Instance that is using the previous rescue mode. The Instance overview displays.
  3. Stop the Instance if it is currently running by using the top right toggle of the Instances overview page.
  4. Click the Advanced settings tab.
  5. Scroll to the Boot mode section and change the boot mode of your Instance to local boot.
  6. Power the Instance on again by using the toggle.

    If you want to utilize rescue mode again, change the boot type back to rescue mode to reboot the Instance using the latest rescue mode.

Updating rescue mode using the Scaleway API

  1. List the Instances of your Project(s).
  2. Filter the returned Instances to keep only the ones with boot_type: "rescue".
  3. Stop the Instances
  4. Update the Instances and set boot_type: "local"

If you still want to use rescue mode for your Instance(s), update these Instances again and switch back the boot_type to “rescue”. They will then use the updated rescue system.

  1. Start the Instances.
