The Altavault is up and running (only test date on it) but now we were asked to change the AWS configuration. I see a note that states:
NOTE: When the datastore is not empty, the cloud provider, region, hostname, bucket name and archival mode cannot be changed.
What are the needed steps to be bale to modify the AWS S3 bucket configuraton in the Altavault appliance again?

To change the AWS configuration you'll need to wipe the contents of the AltaVault (and cloud) to start over. From CLI issue these commands:
no service enable
datastore format all
(respond 'Y' to wipe cache and cloud contents; this is a permanent action)
logging files rotation force
At this point, you can use th UI Configure -> Cloud Settings Wizard to reconfigure the AWS configuration as needed to your liking.

The prior cloud configuration will be present when you visit the UI after performing the CLI steps, but all the fields should be editable so you can modify the values accordingly (such as the bucket name, endpoint, cloud provider type, etc). If these values are not editable then you may have accidently started the service, which locks these fields down. You need to ensure you do not start the service prior to configuring the cloud settings first after running the CLI commands.
