The amount of time it takes EC2 to build a snapshot is directly proportional to the number of modified blocks that volume has seen since the last snapshot. In the case of your journal, that sees a lot of write/delete operations, so it's not surprising that it would take a long time to snap. Keep in mind that these are truly block devices. They know nothing ...

To convert .pem key to .ppk key using *nix command-line version of puttygen use: puttygen mykey.pem -o mykey.ppk See puttygen man page. There's PuTTY rpm and "putty-tools" package available for many *nix distributions. The .ppk format is proprietary to PuTTY, so tools outside of PuTTY toolset (like ssh-keygen) do not support it. Note that you can ...

Above your 'Add EP2 instances to host group' task, use - debug: var=ec2 to see what the variable holds. If you look at the variables for each instance you'll probably find you've spelt ec2_publicIP wrong or it's in a different location in the variable.

If all your EC2 instances are of the same type and in the same region, I don't think there is any way to know which one is covered an which one is not, because a reserved instance is just a billing concept. A reserved instance is never really assigned to a specific EC2 instance. AWS will look at how many instances you have running and how many reserved ...

Can I create my own active directory in a EC2 instance of Windows 2012 without using AWS AD? Sure - why couldn't you? It's a windows server, and you're free to do whatever you like with it. Like any AD deployment, you should have at least two DCs, and you'll need to sort out how to get your clients secure access to the server.

Note: I think that there's a typo and sudo mkfs.xfs -f /dev/xvdf should read sudo mkfs.xfs -f /dev/xvdb. Both of the approaches that you described are valid. There's absolutely no need to create a partition on an EBS block storage. What actually holds the files are filesystems. When you issue a command like sudo mkfs.xfs -f /dev/xvdb you will create a ...

Here's my suggestion: /dev/sda [root disk] filesystem mounted at / /dev/sdb [data disk] filesystem mounted at /var/www or /www /dev/sdc [log disk] filesystem mounted at /var/log Separating your application data to another disk is a good decision. If for some reason, e.g. faulty distro upgrade, your root disk becomes unbootable you could still be able to ...

That is actually a very recent feature of S3. You can now define endpoints with access policies in VPCs. See this blog post for more information: VPC Endpoint for Amazon S3

But what are exact minimal policies https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/home?#policies that should be allowed for User for this (or any another specific) command? There is not a single "minimal" policy such as you ask with the exception of the "AdministratorAccess" policy which gives you the ability to do all commands. But having that much power is ...

You can now move the EIP from standard to vpc scope. Check out http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/elastic-ip-addresses-eip.html#migrating-eip

In addition to @Bazze's excellent comment regarding libsas, you may be missing a dependency ( or a dependency on the right architecture) Note that it is fairly common to have to install both 32-bit and 64-bit libraries for some applications. If you use ldd /path/to/amazon-elasticache-cluster-client.so, do you see any lines mentioning ‘unresolved’ or ...
