While creating EBS snapshot, you may receive the following error:
 
Maximum allowed active snapshot limit exceeded.
 
This error message is usually accompanied with the "SnapshotLimitExceeded" error code.
 
This error occurs when there are too many EBS snapshots in your AWS account. To resolve the issue, you can do any of the following:

  • Delete some EBS snapshots. You can do this manually, or you can use Skeddly's "Delete EBS Snapshots" action, or
  • Contact AWS support and request an increase in your EBS snapshot limit
