Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of remote computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform  operated from 11 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Other services include Elastic MapReduce (EMR), Route 53 (a DNS web service),  provides a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), storage, database, deployment and application services.

Hello everyone. We have setup a Windows Server 2012 r2 instance on AWS. We would like to setup Active Directory and have users be able to auth against it. I understand AWS has its own AD service available, but we run Okta in our organization and need a Windows server Okta agent running to sync against our AD, hence the windows server. I am having a hard time with the users being able to login to the domain on a computer. We would like to use the same domain name of our email (ie contoso.com) which also hosts our website. I understand we need to add something the SRV records to our domain DNS which is hosted on AWS as well.
Also, we use Ruckus APs that can authenticate against an AD, which we cannot get to reach the AD server.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Hello
We have an IPSec VPN solution for a small number of sites.  Our users remote into two of the sites via IPSec VPN too.
We are going to move supplier and looking at moving from IPSec to MPLS.  We will look to migrate to AWS and/or move CRM out to other providers.  We also will moving from our on prem phone system to a cloud solution.
Has anyone got any recomendation around security, perfornance, limitation etc of each?

I have a Lex Bot with 3 slots. The user will provide the Lex bot with first name, last name, and birthdate. The user can also fill multiple slots at once, such as 'My name is Steve Jobs.' I'd like the bot to repeat back the users name (or first name, or last name or DOB depending on what was said) before asking the next question. ie -'Thank you, your name is Steve Jobs. May I please have your birthdate'

I figure I need to use the elicitslot dialog action in my lambda function. However, I'm not sure exactly how I can do this. I think I need to figure out someway of keeping track of which slot was just filled. Is there a good way to do that?

Can anyone help in the best way to run ansible on launch events in AWS autoscaling groups.  

I was planning on firing off a lambda task to call a playbook through jenkins. But the notification from AWG only has the instance ID and I don't really want to use user data for the instance to register to to ansible or jenkins, I would prefer that AWG notifies Jenkins of the event and it fires off the build.

Any suggestions of how to use Lamba to take the launch event from an ASG and and pass the IP address of the new instance to a jenkins project as the input for the inventory of invoking a play book. Or indeed an SQS queue.

Thank you

Hi experts,

I am planning to migrate bunch of windows 2003 servers to a cloud service. These servers host a Lagacy application and they consist of DCs, Exchange, SQL 2005,MOM 2005, Biztalk, IIS, and ISA 2005.


Is it possible to migrate the current group of servers to a cloud service. These servers also use SQL cluster and NLB. I have read the NLB is not supported by Azure.

Is there a tool I can run on the servers that can tell me if the servers are fully compatible with a cloud service. Or is there a checklist that I can use to see if my servers and applications like MOM 2005, ISA, Exchange etc. will work in the cloud. Will I have to consider upgrading the OS or application or redesigning the cluster and NLB nodes for the migration.

Many thanks

Hi Experts,

I have been told by AWS suport that a private RDS database needs an external ip address to connect to Quick Sight.  Can anyone let me know how I can safely connect my MySQL RDS data source to a instance of Quick Sight keeping the database private?
I did follow an article https://stackoverflow.com/questions/44207552/aws-unable-to-connect-amazon-quicksight-to-rds
but I have subsequenetly been tolo that this configeration will not work.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Experts

Could you point a good tutorial, preferently that you had ever used, about using AWS with PHP?

And if possible a roadmap on how to better know this tecnology.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Experts,

I am running into an issue where my Windows 7 Pro client connects to a RAS on Server 2012 using L2TP. After I connect successfully, I can ping the RAS server on the local IP, however, I can't ping any other machines on that same subnet.

IF I log into the RAS server using RDP, I can then ping other local machines. Is it wrong for me to expect that I should be able to ping to the other machines on the same subnet? Do I need additional routes or VPNs?

The RAS server is on AWS EC2 and so are the other machines. I have allowed all traffic from each subnet using the Security Groups on AWS.

Thoughts?

I was wondering why I should use Amazon Web Services for a relational database instead of just running the database on the server.

The application is as follows - apps will be able to enter data into this database. PHP will be able to export a CSV file.

I was going to use cryptography to secure remote access from the app. Would this be more desirable than a static IP VPN?

I'm leaning towards just having the database run on the server.

Hi Experts,

I have a Windows Server 2012 instance running on AWS EC2.

The volume size is 30 GB,  but I want to increase it to 64 GB.

I have resized the volume to 64 GB via the AWS EC2 console:

But the new volume size is not showing in Windows Server 2012:

I migrated some working code that I've had running on Windows 2008 R2 servers for years and years up to Amazon AWS last night and am getting the following error:

Current Recordset does not support updating. This may be a limitation of the provider, or of the selected locktype.

This is my code:
Set rsEmployee = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rsEmployee.Open MySQL, MyConn, adOpenKeyset, adLockPessimistic, adCmdText

Obviously Amazon does something a little different than your typical vanilla Windows 2008 R2 build that causing it to not work.  Anyone run across this yet?

I have a customer that needs to access an internal load balancer on our AWS network.  The internal load balancer is not provided a static IP address.  It is given a DNS name that can be resolved to an internal IP address that is dynamically assigned from the subnet in the VPC.  If the customer creates a vpn connection and provides access to the entire subnet range they would be able to access the DNS name of the internal load balancer without issue.  Unfortunately they are not willing to support 256 random IP's on the vpn tunnel.  Is this too much to ask the customer to provide on the vpn tunnel?  Is it best practice not to create a tunnel with access to the entire subnet?

Several times a day for the past 2 days we have been losing connection to our website internally for about 40 minutes. Connection returns with no changes on our part.

The website  moved to AWS several months ago. Before the move to AWS this issue never occurred, as the website resided here.

We have (long ago) disabled edns on our DNS servers, but we also use forwarders, so that should not even be an issue.

As far as we can tell, access from outside of our organization remains unaffected, although, obviously, we cannot test from the customers of all ISPs.

Is there something we should look for that we don’t know about? Do AWS websites sometimes send even larger packets that don’t make it through our firewall?
Is there some protocol beyond EDNS that we don’t know about, that would sporadically come into effect, hence causing an intermittent outage?

When you want to enter multiple source IP ranges for the same port in a security group in AWS do you need to create a separate rule for each source IP range?

Long story short, we've tried to migrate a machine from our datacenter (VMWare) to AWS and it gets to the Ctrl+Alt+Delete to unlock screen, but I cannot RDP into it because it seems to think there is no network connection present.  To my knowledge, my team has deleted any drivers by VMWare.

Of course I can take a screenshot through AWS, but no pinging or access in any other way.

I've tried
1. Mounting it and trying some registry changes when mounted on another instance, but that usually ends up with a blue screen.
2. Adding NICs
3. Changing instance type to C3.2XL

Bottom line is, red x = nada.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve installed the GNOME 3 desktop on an Oracle Linux 7.3 instance on Amazon AWS (AMI ID OL7.3-x86_64-HVM-2016-11-09).  The desktop seems a bit off, however.  As seen in https://imgur.com/a/EgAON the resolution is poor and, more importantly, the drop-down applications menu is missing.   I’m using TigerVNC (VNC Viewer  6.17.731) to connect to the server.  The desktop was installed with      yum groupinstall -y "Server with GUI"
 
Any insights would be welcome.

Basically, Enhanced Securtiy Configuration is disabled on the host, as well as every possible place in Group Policy.  Yet, whenever a new user logs in and runs IE, it says "Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration is enabled", but a refresh, or reload of the browser, and it goes to Google.com, which we set as the home page.

Setting up a site to site vpn with a partner.  We have overlapping networks so we need to setup NAT.  The partner does not want to pass private IP's over the VPN stating that it is best practice to not use private IP's.  Is this best practice?  We have created several vpn's and all have passed private IP's.  The problem we have is our end is on the AWS network and they do not allow NATing in their VPN connections.  Is passing private IP's really a bad thing?  We are limited on our end by AWS but if the partner wants to connect and pass public IP address what are our options?  Traffic will only be initiated one way....from partner to AWS network.  The partner needs to connect to a load balancing device at 192.168.5.100 using port 6500.  If I can't NAT my IP subnet and the partner needs to NAT to a private IP, what are the options?

I have an environment that resulted in using an AMI VPN Application since their firewall wasn't compatible with the native Amazon VPN Services..  I want to move away from the AMI VPN Appliance and use the native Amazon VPN Services for it's free..  With that said..  Is the Amazon VPN Serivces an AMI or simply a native feature in EC2?  I need to setup a lab.  When I refer to the Amazon VPN service I guess this is the 'virtual private gateway to the VPC' ?

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.
