How to Resolve Manually

To resolve this manually, you will need to consider two parts of the Redshift configuration settings. To set the Maintenance Track and set the Maintenance Window, head to the Maintenance portion of the Redshift Cluster settings as shown below.

Next, you can head to the Backup section of the RedShift configuration settings to setup your backup snapshot retention period which can be anywhere from 0-35 days.
