To attach a volume to an instance

  1. Right-click a volume and click Attach Volume.
    The Attach Volume dialog box appears.
  2. Select the instance for the device from theInstances list box.
  3. Specify how to expose the volume to the instance in the Device field (/dev/sdb through /dev/sdz in Linux and xvdb through xvdh in Windows). For information about which devices are reserved by the instance stores, go to Instance Storage in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
  4. Click Attach.
    Amazon EC2 attaches the volume to the instance.
