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.

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 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.

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?

Moving data to the cloud? Find out if you’re ready

Before moving to the cloud, it is important to carefully define your db needs, plan for the migration & understand prod. environment. This wp explains how to define what you need from a cloud provider, plan for the migration & what putting a cloud solution into practice entails.

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

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,

Hi

We normally install our web application on AWS. It has 1x AWS Elastic Load Balancer and 3x Windows Web Servers. We use the Load Balancer (obviously) to spread traffic across the 3 web servers.

A new client wants to install our web application on their own VMWare environment. They say that they don't have any virtual/physical load balancers.

We don't have much experience of VMWare.

Does it have a virtual load balancer as part of the default environment or do they need to purchase something?

Thanks.

I have installed a software in AWS which is using Ubuntu.
I am using SSH.
I need to download a file (error_log) to my local computer.
I am using the user and web address I use with SSH
I use the SCP command and tried different ways and always says: "Permission denied (publickey)"
I've used these:
  • scp bitnami@ec2-34-226-245-205.compute-1.amazonaws.com:error_log . (This is the AWS address)
  • scp bitnami@34.226.245.205 :error_log . (This is the AWS address)
  • scp bitnami@ip-172-31-34-134:error_log .  (this is the web address that appear in SSH
bitnami is the user

My Questions:
Which web address I have to use after "@"
Do I have to detail all the path?


Please advise what to do.

Thanks

I am considering making training videos which at some point may have a price attached to them. So, I am not keen on hosting these on YouTube.

What options to do have for private hosting?

Is it logical to consider using my WordPress site, where I already have WuCommerce up and running?

What is involved in video posting? Are there various WordPress plugins I cans use that would make this easy?

This is hosted on AWS. How do you calculate the cost of this kind of service for bandwidth?

What if I have 10 views per day and the video is 30 minutes long?

What might that cost for the month?

Thanks

Hello Team,

I'm in the need to create a witness server for our failover cluster in AWS. I will need to join this witness server to the domain and I'm not sure how to go about this in AWS. Would i need to have a domain controller in AWS or can I just join it to my local domain that is not in AWS?
If so can you please provide some steps.

Thank you

I have a client who's server is being the subject of repeated intrusion attempts over the last 8 days.  All the source IP's whois back to Amazon Web Services.

Do Amazon follow these up with the user of the IP or do they pursue it in any way?  The attacks are getting more frequent.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Need to add fleet of EC2 existing instances into new AD domain. The AD is a simple AD applicable only within AWS environment. There are existing users and the users would be able to login with the new AD to EC2 machines

We plan to create a DR environment in AWS for some of our servers.  AWS wants us to provide ports/protocols in use.

Is there a command I could use to run on the local server to gather those information?

Thanks,.

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?
