Upgrading AWS Instances to 5th Generation instances

Note:  Latest AWS CLI version is required.
Once you've installed and configured the AWS CLI, and created an AMI, please follow the steps below:

1) SSH into your Ubuntu instance.

2) Upgrade the kernel on your instance by running the command:
    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic

3) Stop the instance from the console or AWS CLI.

4) Using the AWS CLI, modify the instance attributes to enable ENA by running the command below:
    aws ec2 modify-instance-attribute --instance-id --ena-support --region ap-southeast-1

5) Using the AWS CLI, modify the instance attributes to change to the desired instance type (for example: m5.large)
    aws ec2 modify-instance-attribute --instance-id --instance-type m5.large --region ap-southeast-1

6) Start your instance from the console or the AWS CLI.

Once the instance boots, please confirm if the ENA module is in use on the network interface by running the command below:
    ethtool -i eth0
New AMI (to launch new instances): v7 with ena support
