Low

This policy validates that EC2 Instances are only launched on approved hosts. This allows you to control what dedicated hosts your instances are launched on, and prevent instances from being launched on new non-approved dedicated hosts.

This policy requires configuration before it can be enabled.

Remediation

To remediate this, terminate all EC2 Instances running on unapproved hosts and relaunch them on approved hosts.
