Hi All, I have 3 AWS VM's. VM01 is domain controler, VM02 and VM03 joined domain. I am able to ping VM's by IP , full name "" and AWS Private DNS butnot with "host" .  Can you please help me out for this?
Using Kotlin I have been trying to connect an Android App with Amazon Web Services. I have carefully followed all the instructions in the "Getting Started" guide. I have done it over and over about 6 times thinking I was making a little error. I honestly can not figure out what I have done wrong. I installed imports, dependencies and permissions without trouble. After I modified the onCreate it would no longer work on the emulator and I didn't get the handshake back from AWS.  Please note: Text file of all codes attached!
I am looking to use a  MY Cloud Pro 4100 series NAS box  for backing up  Windows Server\ SQL Data locally and then send it to Amazon S3 cloud. The servers I am talking about are 3 Windows servers

2 of the 3 servers are VM-* the servers do  have SQL databases

I  would like to backup  the data locally on the NAS and then send it to Amazon
Has anyone done this?

What I originally wanted to do was install the backup software on the NAS and  have the data back to it and then to the Amazon s3 cloud

I have a non-public S3 bucket XXX on account X, and a CloudFront distribution on account Y that needs to use that bucket as the origin.

What I did so far:

* Added the canonical id of account Y to the permissions of bucket XXX - I get 403 errors.
* Added a bucket policy to bucket XXX - I still get 403 errors

Amazon is launching a new business where you can franchise a branded Amazon courier service:

Startup cost is $10k

They estimate annual profit for a fleet size of 20-40 vans at $75k - $300k a year:

Is this the "Uber"ization of the Post Office?

I saw that the other day too.  I think the vans turn out to be daily rentals from Enterprise. Managing 20 to 40 vans probably means managing 30 to 60 people, 12 hour shifts, 7 days a week.  If you are at the low end of $75K, that is a lot of work for that amount.

Yeah, package/mail delivery is a real grind. My parents are retired postmasters, so I'm interested to hear their take.

I could see how this would be an interesting fit for someone with experience in managing a delivery/logistics model, to be able to work for themselves. At the same time, you would have no negotiating power with Amazon as far as payment per package/van. Seems like an extremely high risk scenario.

Seems like the only way you could step into this safely, is if you could look at the historic package volume for the geographic region you'd like to service.
We are using Amazon WorkDocs as storage.  We have a website that processes orders and sends out emails with attached Word documents.  We would like these Word documents to be sent into a specific Amazon WorkDocs location automatically.  

I was thinking I may be able to setup an email filter that forwards these emails to an address provided by WorkDocs, which would save the attachments on that email accordingly.  Maybe wishful thinking..??  I'm just not seeing anything about this, but before I give up on it I figured I'd ask here and see if somebody else has done something like this..??

Any  information on this would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
I have a Node project written in TypeScript where the application takes in user's input arguments and does some calculation and prints out the results. Take the example of a calculator the user inputs value of two numbers and it prints out the addition of two numbers. for example npm run calc 3 5. The application prints out 8.

The application is working but i want to make this an aws lambda function and deploy it in aws. The examples i see everywhere is hello lambda function. Can anyone help me how i can make a handler and deploy it to aws?

How do i convert the below hello function to a calc lambda function and deploy it to aws?
export const hello: Handler = (event: APIGatewayEvent, context: Context, cb:             
Callback) => {
const response = {
statusCode: 200,
body: JSON.stringify({
message: 'Go Serverless Webpack (Typescript) v1.0! Your function executed 
  input: event,

cb(null, response);

I am trying to write a powershell script to query my AWS Glacier vault to verify files have been uploaded before I delete them from the source.

I am using CloudBerryLab.Explorer.PSSnapIn cmdlets within my powershell script.  Here is the script which I've basically copied from Cloudberry forum

add-pssnapin CloudBerryLab.Explorer.PSSnapIn
$conn = Get-CloudGlacierConnection -Key [YOUR ACCESS KEY] -Secret [YOUR SECRET KEY]
$vault = $conn | Select-CloudFolder -Path "[region]/[Vault Name]"
$invJob = $vault | Get-Inventory
$archives = $vault | get-clouditem

The connection appears to work and checking $invJob.status = succeeded.  Also it does take about 4 hours for the inventory to complete.  

When I execute "$archives = $vault | get-clouditem", I get the error "Get-Clouditem:No ready inventory retrieval jobs for vault:[my region/my vault]"

I have a feeling I'm missing a step somewhere that would involve using the $invJob but I can't find any methods for the object where I can query the folders in my vault.

Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated.
I have a 10Gbps Direct Connect circuit from our enterprise data center to AWS. Each VPC has a different
sub-interface and different BGP peer. See snippet below. What's happening is that ping tests to some BGP
peers might have NO loss be other BGP peers are seeing 2 to 10% packet loss from the perspective
of our monitoring system in the data center. If I look at the Ethernet port or the PortChannel port there
are no incrementing errors nor discards that I can see. If I try to show anything about the subinterface
(say show interface port-channel3.1002) - error information is not available. I'm not sure how I can
look at the interface of the router on the AWS side of the connection.

My question: how can I go about troubleshooting the ping loss to these sub-interfaces/bgp peer addresses?

I am working for a utility company. For hosting we use Linode right now.

I wanted to set up some form of redundancy in the event that the website goes down.

So I was thinking about using failover. As I understand I would need two (or more) web servers and two DNS servers. Is this correct?/

I was going to have one web server with Linode and one with AWS. For DNS I was going to have one with Linode and one with AWS.

Does this sound like a good setup?
Hey, This is just a decision-making problem. I am seeking for a well thought out answer.
I have to develop an android XMPP chat application, (the application also has a NodeJS server API, connecting to MongoDB and AWS S3 for picture uploads)

which will be better:

1. Having a "openfire" server on aws and connecting it to the android application and implementing an XMPP client on the android device using "smack" library.

2. Implementing a "xmpp-client" on NodeJS server side and scrape the results from this API to the Android device.
Hi, I'm building a big data streaming pipeline that takes streams from a camera through kinesis to trigger a lambda function. The lambda function will then use AWS machine learning to detect objects and the images are stored in S3 and their metadata is stored in DDB. My problem is that the first frame of the video is being stored on S3 and DynamoDB repeatedly (same image is being stored). Here is the lambda code (the main function):

def process_image(event, context):

    #Initialize clients
    rekog_client = boto3.client('rekognition')
    s3_client = boto3.client('s3')
    dynamodb = boto3.resource('dynamodb')

    s3_bucket = ...
    s3_key_frames_root = ...

    ddb_table = dynamodb.Table(...)
    rekog_max_labels = ...
    rekog_min_conf = float(...)
    label_watch_list = ...
    label_watch_min_conf = ...

    #Iterate on frames fetched from Kinesis
    for record in event['Records']:
        frame_package_b64 = record['kinesis']['data']
        frame_package = cPickle.loads(base64.b64decode(frame_package_b64))
        frame_count = frame_package["FrameCount"]

        rekog_response = rekog_client.detect_labels(
                'Bytes': img_bytes

        #Iterate on rekognition labels. Enrich and prep them for storage in DynamoDB
        labels_on_watch_list = []

I'm struggling to setup subdomains on an AWS EC2 Linux AMI.

The primary ServerName should be (using Cloudflare DNS to point the A record to the EC2 elastic IP)

The subdomain should be (again using Cloudflare DNS to point the A record to the EC2 elastic IP) and root to /admin folder.

I've tried adding the following to httpd.conf but its returning a 500 error on the subdomain:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/admin"
    <Directory "/var/www/html/admin">
    AllowOverride All

Hello, we are currently migrating some websites into AWS VPS hosting (or whatever they call it I’m not in billing), and want to know what other people use as a DNS provider, does AWS provide DNS services, if not what DNS providers do you use to host websites.
In particular we are looking for DNS services that can do things like SPF and DKIM etc.. (so not afraid DNS)

I thank you for your help in advance.
I would like to know if it is possible to add a timestamp column in a table when it is loaded by an AWS Glue Job.

When a Crawler updates the table in the data catalog and run the job again, the table will add the new data in the table with a new time stamp..

Column A | Column B| TimeStamp
