AWS

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.

I have a wordpress site running on AWS EC2 Ubuntu. I don't know how to technically describe this but here it goes:
I need a page URL that when you go to the URL it will Automatically allow someone to download a CSV file after HTTP Authentication.

I have seen and tried tutorials for setting up a HTTP Authentication for my Admin Sign in page. But I can't find any help on setting up a single page.  I am also up to suggestions on how to setup this HTTP Authentication on AWS S3 Bucket. I hope this makes sense. Thank you for the help.

I am tasked with deploying Active Directory Certificate Service Chain on Windows 2016 Server platform.
Servers would be VMs hosted in AWS (except for the Root Authority), I need to make this environment highly available. My understanding is that OCSP is the service that is needing high availability the most. How do I make use of AWS services to insure High Availability? Is this possible?

I have an Amazon Web Server (AWS) elastic IP (EC2) Window 2016 server. Can you please explain how I can view the CPU set up and be able to change it from the AWS console?

I know I currently have 8 CPUs set up but I would like to be able to reduce it to 4 then increase it when needed.

Hello Experts,
I have a strange issue I am hoping someone can help with.  We have set-up a VPN tunnel to another organizations servers in AWS, all connectivity seems to be fine back and forth.  What we cannot do is RDP to the servers in AWS, before you throw up firewall let me explain the oddities of the issue.

The consultants of the organization can come to our office and, from our network, RDP back to these machines without issue.

We thought it was a username?password issue but they tested our credentials from their machines and they were successful.

We have disabled firewalls yet still unable to connect.

We found out that from our network we can take a fresh PC, never joined to our domain and connect via RDP.  Once that machine is joined to the domain the connection can no longer be made.  Here is the real kicker, removing the machine from the domain, does not change the issue.  Instead it still suffers the same inability to connect via RDP as the domain joined machines.

The best I can come up with is our GPO is making some registry changes that are not being reversed once dis-joined from the domain.  

Does anyone have any idea of a setting that could cause this issue?  I have cleared the DNS suffix, tried static and DHCP, Admin logins, Firewalls disabled, tracert looks good (issues there would be present regardless of domain memberships).  I am at a loss, help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark

I need 4 instances, 1 m4.large, 2 m4.xlarge, and 1 m4.4xlarge, all with Windows and Std SQL Server. Is the price actually ~$4700 per month to keep the 4 instances up and running 100% of the time? This excludes data transfer costs and elastic IP address costs.

Here I want to discuss that what will pros and cons if P we are implementing AD/DC over cloud or Inhouse. I have some observation as below.

    we are located in India, so here is Internet connectivity is slow and sometimes has no connectivity.
      Mostly users will be in the office.
         total current users strength is 70+.

        Please suggest as per your experience.

        Looking for the quick and experienced reply.

        Hi Support
        we have 2 site in AD DS (HO & AWS), i have installed a new DC for AWS Site and associated the AWS subnet
        now the machines in my AWS Site are logon to HO DC instead of AWS DC, this increase network latency (as 2 sites are connected through site to site VPN). how can we make sure AWS site clients authenticate AWS DC

        So I can easily understand how much an EC2 Instance is on Amazon's nice EC2 Instance Pricing page, but I am still having a bit of trouble understand how bandwidth would effect pricing.

        Just to make things simple, say I downloaded a 1 GB file every hour for an entire month. How much would the additional cost from that be?

        I have a client with Multiple ESXi hosts running around 16 Servers, these servers are all windows based using Server 2008 R2 with at least 1 SQL server. The client would like a backup and redundancy plan put together  with the following:

        RTO/RPO 60 minutes
        Local Copy of backups to QNAP/NAS
        Remote copy of backups to AWS/Azure

        Intra-Day snapshots each hour to Local NAS - File/SQL
        Daily Backup Snapshot (NAS) with replication to Azure/AWS as a recovery site
        Daily backups to be store for 7 days, weekly for 4 week, monthly for 6 month etc.

        Recovering from local backup within approximately 1 hour. SQL and File servers have cross dependencies and so recovery of all would be required to allow complete functionality.

        VMware vCenter & a version of Veeam availbale,

        Has anyone completed integration with VMware and AWS/Azure for this before and has it worked as expected and or are there other options available that will allow for this level of backups/recovery

        Looking for some advice here....

        About a month ago we sent out a notice to our customers that we would be moving our SAaS service from our hosted data center to the AWS cloud.  The weekend to do teh migration is now here and we have run into an issue migrating data that will give us reason to believe there is a chance that the site may not be ready Monday morning when we are supposed to be ready.  The management team here is saying that there is no way we can send out a notice delaying this migration.  I am requesting we give the customers notice that the migration will be postponed.  How bad does postponing the migration look?  How does it compare to having real problems on Monday if it does not go as planned?

        The db users/logins were deleted from a db living on a SQL AWS RDS instance, so I can no longer access this db.  I wanted to restore this db from a .bak file which would bring back the users/logins.  I can't restore because I lack permissions.

        I have admin access to the RDS instance, i need to create a login on a specific db so I can perform functions.

        Hi Experts;

        I can send PHP Email from the command line connected to an Amazon Web Services EC2 instance configured with an Apache 2.4.2 server, PHP 7.0, and PHPMailer 6.01 through the AWS SES SMTP interface. I am unable however to send responses to an html form using PHPMailer to an Email address from the AWS website running on the same EC2 instance and server. Here is the code used to send PHP Email from the command line without any problems:

        <?php
        use PHPMailer\PHPMailer\PHPMailer;
        require '/home/ec2-user/vendor/autoload.php';
        $mail = new PHPMailer;
        $mail->isSMTP();

        $mail->setFrom('address@example.com', 'Verified Email');
        $mail->addAddress('Recipient@receiver.com', 'Recipient Name');

        $mail->Username = 'Amazon SMPT credentials';
        $mail->Password = 'Amazon SMPT secret Key';
        $mail->Host = 'email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com';

        $mail->Subject = 'Testing Amazon SES SMTP PHP Mail';

            <a href="https://aws.amazon.com/ses">Amazon SES</a> SMTP
            interface using the PHPMailer.</a><br><br></p>';

        $mail->SMTPAuth = true;
        $mail->SMTPSecure = 'tls';
        $mail->Port = 587;
        $mail->isHTML(true);

        $mail->AltBody = "Email Test\r\n This email was sent through the
            Amazon SES SMTP interface using the PHPMailer class.";

        if(!$mail->send()) {
            echo "Email not sent. " , $mail->ErrorInfo , PHP_EOL;
        } else {

        Hello all,
            I just started with a company and we are in process of getting started with AWS. The previous administrator was learning AWS and getting the ball rolling and uploaded a ton of things, but uploaded everythnig to an account that uses his name. I have administrative access to both the old AWS account and a new company one we created. How can I take all the data from S3 buckets and move them over without having to download everything to my pc (it is a few TB of data) and then reuploading it? I tried to go in to the old AWS buckets permissions and tried to see if I could add the new AWS accounts number to it, but it said "Invalid ID".

        Any ideas?
        Thanks!

        Hi everyone,
        Does anyone know how to preserve snapshot tags in AWS. This node.js function moves the snapshots to another region but does not preserve tags so it becomes difficult to identify which server the snapshot belonged to.
        If I cannot preserve tags, I would like to know how to tag a snapshot using the javascript code below. Example Key:DeleteOn Value [currentdate]
        I found this code snippet that may be of help:
        http://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-javascript/v2/developer-guide/ec2-example-creating-an-instance.html

         // Add tags to the instance
           params = {Resources: [instanceId], Tags: [
              {
                 Key: 'DeleteOn',
                 Value: 'current date as 2017-12-05'
              }
           ]};
           ec2.createTags(params, function(err) {
              console.log("Tagging instance", err ? "failure" : "success");
           });
        Thanks!

        I configured Web Identify Federation between AWS Cognito and Facebook and I'm getting the following error message when I tried to authenticate:

        "Can't load URL: The domain of this URL isn't included in the app's domains. To be able to load this URL, add all domains and sub-domains of your app to the App Domains field in your app settings."

        I'm struggling to find out which is the correct URL I have to add in the App Domains.
        I tried the URL for the static-website on S3 and its CloudFront URL, and it doesn't work.
        Does it need a proper domain name to work?

        I'm just looking for an example.

        Thank you,

        Carlos

        I've been watchin a video from Amazon on AWS Direct Connect. I see that a direct connection is made from Amazon Direct Connect PoP to a router in a co-location facility. The from there there is a circuit (say 1Gbps or 10Gbps) to the enterprise itself. The presentation at turns talked about the carrier owning the (a?) router and the customer owning the router. In the diagram attached below - the device labeled "Customer Gateway" is generally owned and configured by the end customer/user of Amazon Web Services? Or is that more typically owned by the carrier that is providing the data circuit? And finally if the carrier owns that device do they configure it or leave that to the customer? Thank you for clarifying this point for me.

        Hi,

        I am trying to use my on-premise Server to manage AWS instances via Ansible.

        I have a few play-books to install services on EC2 Instances. I tried to create an ssh-keygen with a sudo that I created on the on-premise server and on the AWS instance, I tried to copy the newly created public key to AWS but keep getting Permission denied (public key)

        I am trying to write a python script to verify whether or not a proper security constraint was applied in AWS. The script seems to be working, however, it is returning a duplicate output (code is attached)

        Here is a sample log output when it is run in AWS Lambda:

        START RequestId: 8edc3e6d-c727-11e7-ad8e-07aa7f7d4c10 Version: $LATEST
        port-7dheonjnhtxci

        Checking for valid SG template constraint....
        ['port-7dheonjnhtxci'] Contains a valid SG template constraint....
        Listing constraints.........
        Checking for valid SG template constraint....

        END RequestId: 8edc3e6d-c727-11e7-ad8e-07aa7f7d4c10

        As you can see, it is returning the same information twice.  I am relatively new to Python so I am sure it is just a simple oversight on my part. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
