Or you can leave it running, and it will cost you about $1 for a week. I really think you are making it too complicated. But that’s the last I’ll say on this topic.

The newly brought up instance will now be a coordinator node that can take commands to manage a cluster. However, I would need this node to also be the master in order to avoid having the overhead of one extra box.
