If you are creating RDS snapshots, you may receive an error message like the following:
 
cannot create more than 50 manual snapshots
 
By default, all AWS accounts have a limit of 50 manual snapshots that can exist in a single AWS account at any time. If you attempt to create more, you will receive this error message.
 
To resolve this issue, you can do any of the following:

  1. Delete some of your manual RDS snapshots. Skeddly includes a "Delete RDS Snapshots" action which can be used to delete older snapshots.
  2. Contact AWS support and request your RDS snapshots limit be raised.
