Unable to join domain controller on EC2
Posted on 2014-04-14
Hi,I am hoping someone can assist me please.
I setup windows 2008 server EC2 (Free Version Tier 1) for testing purpose before i go ahead and upgrade. I am having issue adding my vmware to the domain controller in AWS EC2. The vmware machine has internet connectivity. When I tried adding the vmware to the domain controller (using the CNAME point to the AWS public ip address) I am not having any luck, looks like it's dns issue.
Active directory has been successfully installed including the DNS service on AWS EC2, The primary DNS on the LAN is pointing to the primary private ip address of the server. From EC2 Security, I have allowed ICMP, DNS. I have also setup CNAME from my domain to the public address of the AWS EC2 machine. Note: I have not purchased elastic ip address yet, so i tried testing this while the instance is running.
I am able to ping the AWS domain controller public ip address using the CNAME which I had created. I have tried to point the dns server on the vmware to the public address off the aws machine and tried adding the vm machine to the dc with no luck.
Any advise please?
