Hi, does anyone know how to view the Device Token needed when sending a direct push notification from the PinPoint Console? I'm using Amazon PinPoint to send push notifications in an app I'm developing. I've used Mobile Hub to create sample code which builds with no errors. I just want to test that the app is receiving push notifications. Thanks

I am contemplating a configuration with 2 Exchange 2013 servers spanned across 2 datacenters with a stretched DAG (with DAC mode on) and the witness server sitting in AWS. My question is, will this setup allow for automatic failover of PAM and DB to the secondary Exchange server in an event of sudden outage to the primary datacenter? All the examples I found so far mentions that admin intervention is needed to start the cluster and enable the PAM role on the secondary Exchange server, so I want to get a confirmation before I venture down this rabbit hole.

I need to decide if I should hire a security expert to try and "break" my site.

I have the latest updates for WordPress and WooCommerce and host it at AWS as EC2.

Where kinds of security problems might I have?

I already changed the database username to no longer use "root".

Can you think of things I can do to nail down the site?

Is it worth having a security guy look at it?

Thanks.

I have a handful of Windows Servers (2012 & 2016) running IIS in Amazon EC2.

I'd like to be able to backup the IIS Logs to an S3 bucket in the .gzip format and have old logfiles be deleted on the server.

Does anyone know of a script (Powershell or otherwise) that can leverage the AWS CLI that can do this?

How do you get your IIS Log Files to Amazon?

Dear colleagues,
I'm looking to monitor buckets in Amazon S3 that have open access permissions.

I know there are enterprise solutions like Alienware, UpGuard, Acunetix, Cloudcheckr, Lightrail, etc and open source solutions like CloudCoreo, Threatresponse.cloud and Activity Aware IDS. I know there's a built-in AWS Trusted Advisor Security Check, available for free with a Business support plan. But I think it should be possible to build an out-of-the-box solution.

I'm sending CloudTrail events to a CloudWatch Logs log stream in the log group and then Create a Metric Filter and an alarm. I need help writing a Filter Pattern that triggers if a user changes the permissions of the existing bucket, which actually is the use case.

This article matches my experience with regards to GCP Firebase vs AWS Lambda. The TLDR is that AWS is better for testing but Firebase is way less complicated overall. For personal projects I'll be sticking with Firebase as much as I can.

I need to know when my site is either down or having slow performance.

It's WordPress and is hosted on AWS EC2.

What kinds of services can you suggest? Free services usually have less features than paid ones. I am not looking to spend money, but would it it adding more features, like reporting.

Thanks.

Hello Experts,

I have created an EFS Filesystem, I am trying to find a script which will give me the below

Input to script : EFS Filesystem ID
Output : {AZ targetIPAddress}

we dont have aws dns, so we are manually mounting using IP address...Here are the steps, I have...

1. The below command will give the Subnet and IP address
# $ aws efs describe-mount-targets --file-system-id fs-e10c82b2 --query 'MountTargets[*].[SubnetId,IpAddress]' --output text
OUTPUT : {SUBNET IPADDRESS}

2. The below command will give me AZ for the subnets
$ aws ec2 describe-subnets --subnet-ids subnet-9456320b --query 'Subnets[].AvailabilityZone' --output text
INPUT :SUBNET
OUTPUT : AVAILABILITY ZONE

How do I combine these 2 scripts to get
- AVAILABILITYZONE IPADDRESS

Please assist

Have a SMB that would like to migrate to the cloud for mainly file sharing purposes.
They don't really need AD, just some way to manage and share files between about 20 users.

Looking at AWS, Azure and Sharepoint.  Does anyone have any recommendations, pro's/con's, etc.

Thanks!

I have been tasked with terminating an AWS VPC. This company has two VPC's, one old and one new. There are no running EC2 instances but I'm not sure if there are any other services attached to this VPC.

What's the "best practice" for decommissioning a VPC?

I've been going through various services and, where I can, I search according to VPC ID (e.g. vpc-12345678) but I'm not finding alot. If anyone has done this before, I'd love some tips.

Thanks!

Hi,

I would like to know how I can send messages using an Amazon Echo to a mobile phone as well as being able to call any phone.

In relation to this:

- The phone being called can be landline or mobile
- It would be a call from an Echo to phone and not Echo to Echo
- The Echo should be able to receive message and calls as well as send
- Would it be free to send messages and make calls in this way
- Also, would anything else be needed to make this work

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi Experts,

We are running nightly onsite backups for our server (DC + File Server) using Veeam, and I want to store an offsite copy of these backups on AWS. What AWS Service should i go for? Do you have any documentation or KBs i can refer to for setting this up?

Experts,

I have a bucket called SRC.Jobs that I want to do a multipart encrypted upload to.   I have been told that I can't do this because the bucket has a period in the name.  Is there a way around this?  Changing the name will break a bunch of other processes.

If I wanted to take my Wordpress site (hosted on AWS E2) live at 10:00 AM on a certain day, how best to do this?

Clearly the domain needs to be directed that site, and no one can guarantee show long that would take. Also, the real domain must point to the real site in order to get the SSL certificate purchased and installed. And I need to do a full test of features once its everything's intact.

But I need to hide it completely from view until 10:00 AM. I would like to literally flip a switch to take it online.

I was under the assumption that even if displayed a "Coming Soon" splash screen and hid the site behind a temporary login page for developers, that the entire site could still be consumed by web spiders. Is that true? Is there a way around this constraint?

So, I need to move the site to the correct domain but need it totally hidden until I flip the switch.

What shall I use as a deployment strategy?

Thanks.

I have an EC2 instance that is basically a small LAMP server hosting a few sites. I performed a yum update on it then did a reboot. 15 minutes later I was still unable to SSH to it so logged into AWS management site to do an instance stop, then start. It is now getting hung up on boot. I can't get a screenshot but I can retrieve logs (attached). What are my options (if any) for recovery here? I have an old snapshot that I could re-image. With nightly data backups and code being checked into GitHub I haven't lost any code or data but it would be much easier to recover this image as opposed to firing up a new one and re-configuring everything again.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have a Word 2017 (Mac) doc that is outputting a PDF that is 362 MB in size. I have about 85 pictures in there which I have not yet compressed. but this only represent about half of the book.

I plan to sell this on download from my website, so the question is, what kinds of expectations are there for file size of the PDF they purchase?

Then, what about needing to support the bandwidth of such a large file? If I sell it, using eBay, for $9.99, I clear about $9.50 per copy. How much money will I spend simply paying AWS:EC2 for the bandwidth of 1/2 Gigabyte download?

Thanks

I've created an instance in AWS and set up the operating system with the correct settings and applications.  From here, I'd like to use it as a base image for further installations or versions of software for testing.

However, when I create an AMI and instantiate from the AMI I can never log into the operating system.  I've tried:
  1. Setting up the instance with the default password and using that default password on the AMI instance
  2. Changing the password in windows and then using the changed password on the AMI instance
  3. Changing the password in windows but using the previous default password on the AMI instance

If I try and get the AMI instance password by choosing 'connect', I get the message saying I need to wait 4 minutes for the instance to startup.  On googling, it looks like you can't 'access' the AMI instance password by using 'Connect' and providing the key as it's supposed to be the previous instance's password.

I've also found online that you can set the instance or AMI to reset the password to a default when you create a new instance from the AMI (which means you don't need to know the previous instances password) but I've been unable to find that setting.

Any help appreciated!  Ideally I'd like to be able to create an instance from the AMI without having to know what the password was.

When my site are in development I have always gotten the IP address from AWS, then accessed them from my browser. But here's an article I would read if there is a secret exposure...

https://www.imore.com/how-edit-your-macs-hosts-file-and-why-you-would-want

I do not take lightly to changing my Hosts file because I do not want to put myself into an unstable condition, if I missed something in the directions.

Is there risk to using an IP address to directly access my PC? I assume the biggest benefit is that the site can be kept private from public view, but is there any way in the world that someone cold guess that address?

Are the scrapers out there pinging billions of IP addresses?

As far as keeping it private, it is mainly that I can use my real domain name and keep that private? That's nt important to me since I can buy the SSL cert and do that before launch. AT the moment, I just need to look at the sire and test it, so by adding my IP into the browser, does that expose my IP to scrapers?

Thanks.
