Hi,

I have recently installed the trial version on AWS. 
I do not want to keep all the three AWS instances running while not in use.
Could you please tell me the graceful way to shutdown and startup the trial environment.

Thanks
Best Regards

Yogesh,

For the free trial, I would just recommend destroying your environment whenever you aren't using it (terraform destroy) and then just using terraform apply to create it again when you are ready to use. Gracefully stopping and starting the VM's would take longer than just destroying and re-creating.
