Before running an EnsureDR job, be aware that AWS applied a Launch Template to the server when you install an AWS Elastic Recovery Agent on the server. Make sure the data configured in the AWS Launch Template is correctly configured to avoid a duplicate IP. Now after you checked all the details in Launch Template, you can execute a job by clicking on the Save & Run button.

Once the work is complete, the report will be generated. You can see from the report that two of the six AWS servers failed to start. Based on this report, you have been made aware of issues in your environment and you can take all measures to fix the issues in advance. AWS failed to start those two servers because the Launch Template had not being configured correctly for those two servers.
