Hello Ee,

I have 3 sql 2016 enterprise servers in AWS running on 3 windows 2016 server instances. I wish to add these 3 as a cluster however , when I check the nodes in the cluster validation I receive " connectivity to a writable domain controller from node ' sqlnode1.somedomain.ca' could not be determined because of this error : Could not get domain controller name from machine ' sqlnode1.somedomain.ca' .

I am however able to disjoin/join the server to the domain ok on each of the 3 nodes and able to run "nltest /dsgetdc:somedomain.ca" and nltest /dclist:somedomain.ca ok on each of the 3 sql boxes and all domin controllers returned from nltest have the following flags :  GC DS LDAP KDC TIMESERV WRITABLE DNS_DC DNS_DOMAIN DNS_FOREST CLOSE_SITE FULL_SECRET WS . The domain Controllers are 2008 R2 and all 3 server 2016 boxes are on their own subnet as per aws instrucitons.

Please provide some guidance on this matter.

aws volume tagging need to be done for the instances. I can get the instances and volumes and block device of only one need multiple volumes and devices attached to it.

 for j in $(aws ec2 describe-volumes  --filters Name=attachment.device,Values=/dev/sda1 Name=attachment.instance-id,Values=i--xxxxxxxx --query 'Volumes[*].{ID:VolumeId}' --region us-west-1 --output text); do
      echo $j
      aws ec2 create-tags --resources $j --tags Key=Name,Value=SSVD
   done

Is there a way I can get mulltiple devices.

As per the limitation of Amazon RDS not being able to do Distributed Queries (i.e. Linked Servers) to OnPremise MSSQL host (as per https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/database/implement-linked-servers-with-amazon-rds-for-microsoft-sql-server/ documentation), I want to know if its possible to setup something of a 'reverse proxy' for allowing a MSSQL RDS instance, connect to said proxy and send SQL calls to an OnPremise SQL host instead?

As per Amazon support -- "It’s an internal IP resolution and routing issue.  When the SQL Server is inside a VPC, the SQL Server isn’t able to use the customer provided DNS entries. This causes DNS lookup failure.  Additionally, the server’s routing tables don’t allow the server to see the customer’s VPC Gateway meaning, there’s no routing path for traffic back to your on-prem servers even if lookup succeeded (or used IP addresses). // If the IP address doesn’t appear in the VPC, we will not route the traffic through the correct network interface, and on-premise database servers would fall into this category." (As per support as well -- "There’s an open enhancement request to fix this but honestly, it’s pretty old and hasn’t gotten much traction for prioritization.")

To get around the limitation of what Amazon has done with the internal IP resolution / routing, primarily with RDS and the TDS Protocol outside of a VPC, I would like to 'trick' the Amazon MSSQL RDS instance into thinking that it is communicating with a Windows EC2 instance running…

We are planning to integrate our on-premises AD with office365 which is hosted on AWS. Currently we don't have on-premises exchange. Hence I need to know which ports must be opened on the AWS network for dirsync to communicate with office365.

Thanks

Hi guys

I've purchased an SSL certificate for an amazon EC2 instance. I am using SSH to connect to the instance.However, I can't copy the purchased files from my desktop onto the actual location /etc/pki/tls/private folder as it's almost certainly down to permissions. The username I am using is 'ec2-user'.

Any ideas how I can change the permissions so it will accept the copy? What permissions would you give it? And then have them set back again? As I know messing with these folders will probably end up with creating a host of other issues.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for helping

I know how to copy my EC2 instances to another region, but how about the connected meta infrastructure?
Such as VPC, subnet, routing tables, etc?
Because just having the EC2 instances alone isn't really sufficient... any ideas?

If this is done using the API, that's ok as well.

Hi everybody,
I have set up an Amazon SES account to send my transactional mail. It looks like working good.
But I need to track remote server response of each of email (when it is send, delivered and accepted by the server)
In this document they suggest some alternatives http://docs.aws.amazon.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/monitor-sending-activity.html

Thru the alternatives I gave a try to  Amazon CloudWatch. Cloudwatch started giving me some information at the overall but not at the email detail (delivery time, etc)

Anybody can help me in this issue?
Thank you

Hi

Just looking for thoughts for the above?  Next step will be to migrate our VMs, but concerned with security, connectivity, performance.

Any info would be great.

hi guys

I'm trying to access an apache web server that I just took a copy of. The external IP is: 34.252.113.239. If you put that into a web browser, then you literally get a 'www' put in front of that IP address.

It's a linux server running apache. I'm not a developer, but could you guide me into looking at where the actual redirect might be occurring and take it out so that putting in the external IP will redirect it to the correct place? I.e. if I put in http://34.252.113.239 then that's exactly where it needs to forward to without a www. coming in front of it.

Thanks for helping

Hello,

Our company has remote offices that have legacy physical file servers providing local mapped drives to the local users.  As these servers are getting old and diskspace is reaching the limit, they are getting difficult to maintain.

If an AWS cloud server can resolve this issue, would you give me an idea of how?

I was thinking about having the users to save their data to Office 365 One Drive but it only ties to their personal.

Please advise.

Thanks.

Is it possible to acquire "subcondition" by Amazon PA-API?
I set a request parameter with ResponseGroup = OfferFull and made a request but the returned XML did not contain a subcondition.

In the API document, explanation about subcondition is described, but just the document is old, was subcondition obsolete?

somebody help

I am sure many of you have seen this.  I am having an issue with my .css files and .js files as they are not getting assigned a value of css in the mime.  It is showing octet-stream.  I have tried to add it when uploading the files 1. Change Metadata Field (text/css) does not show up as an option.  Used S3 Browser and changed the Content-Type to text/css.  I guess it saved?, but then I go back in and view my site from Developer view in browser, it still says octet-stream.  I do have 1 css file that has the full url as the link (google fonts url). It shows up right in the Dev browser as CSS for the type.  FYI - When I inspect, all css files do not have a content type except the one for google fonts.  You can see my site here.  http://inquireacademy.com Thoughts?

As managed cloud service providers, we often get asked to intervene when cloud deployments go awry. Attracted by apparent ease-of-use, flexibility and low computing costs, companies quickly adopt leading public cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

Hello,

We have a few AWI EC2 which after we login, it says the Windows is not activated.

They are  all Windows 2008 being created from legacy Windows 2008 servers.

Please advise if someone knows how to fix this.

The local Windows FW has been disabled.

Thanks.

I am looking for practice lab which is OS independent instead of keep buying hardware that expires after releases. Is there any discounted lab for dev / test environment.  I would be using it for testing various product randomly like -

Citrix XenApp, xendesktop, VMware vrealize, hyperV, Exchange, SCCM etc.

Hosting on AWS and Azure is not cost effective unless they do have cost effective student discount. I do have AWS educate and Microsoft imagine login but I don't think AWS would offer any discount for learning about MS I would have to follow up with Azure imagine team, to see if I could host about three to four test servers under $200 a month

Linux Academy Android App Now Supports Chromecast
Linux Academy Android App Now Supports Chromecast

We have some fantastic news for our Android fans. We’re so excited to announce that the Linux Academy Android app is now available with Chromecast support. That’s right – simply download the latest update of the Linux Academy App and start casting your favorite course videos!

I want to modify the RDS instance size to have higher CPU during peak hours, then lower off hours. It would be much more cost effective. So for example, 7am to 5pm M-F I want to use a db.r3.xlarge, but off hours, I only have a handful of users, so even a db.t2.small would be fine. I understand there would be a little down time during the switch, but I want to automate it. Thanks again.

Hello,

I have setup a full AD on AWS and able to join EC2 instances to the domain. However, i need to promote an EC2 instance as a domain controller to host the licensing server for RDC. i am currently unable to do so as the AD user accounts do not have sufficient privilege to promote a server to DC.

is there any way of doing this?

FYI...My account is brand new, not and old EC2 classic.

I noticed in the console under security groups, you can filter between VPC SG or EC2 SG. However, I don't see anyway to create a VPC SG, only EC2 SG (and you select which VPC you want it in).

I thought there was only EC2 SG, and NACLs? Is there explicit separate VPC SGs or something I'm missing?

Our dns servers have cache.dns files.

If we do not have the check mark "use root hints " checked, are these files used?

I ask because the information in them is different. One server is able to resolve a site on AWS and the other server cannot.
Putting the check mark on does not seem to make a difference.

But if they are reading these files, that could be the root of the problem.

We are looking to migrate to the AWS Cloud and have hit a wall with a stored procedure erroring out. Below is the error message. This seems to happen only on the RDS instance of the database. It seems to run fine on SQL Server 2012.

Message : Some Error occured in Stored Procedure : ETL_Orders_ShoppingCart
Error is: Maximum stored procedure, function, trigger, or view nesting level exceeded (limit 32).

Any ideas why this could be happening.
Thanks,
Aditya
