You are responsible for a web application that consists of an Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) load balancer in
front of an Auto Scaling group of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instances. For a recent deployment of
a new version of the application, a new Amazon Machine Image (AMI) was created, and the Auto Scaling group
was updated with a new launch configuration that refers to this new AMI. During the deployment, you received
complaints from users that the website was responding with errors. All instances passed the ELB health
What should you do in order to avoid errors for future deployments? (Choose 2)

Add an Elastic Load Balancing health check to the Auto Scaling group. Set a short period for the health
checks to operate as soon as possible in order to prevent premature registration of the instance to the load

Enable EC2 instance CloudWatch alerts to change the launch configuration’s AMI to the previous one.
Gradually terminate instances that are using the new AMI.

Set the Elastic Load Balancing health check configuration to target a part of the application that fully tests
application health and returns an error if the tests fail.

Create a new launch configuration that refers to the new AMI, and associate it with the group. Double the
size of the group, wait for the new instances to become healthy, and reduce back to the original size. If new
instances do not become healthy, associate the previous launch configuration.

Increase the Elastic Load Balancing Unhealthy Threshold to a higher value to prevent an unhealthy instance
from going into service behind the load balancer.
