I am trying to access my windows instance but I am unable to login (RDP) into it. What I have done is I have taken up a snapshot of a root EBS volume and attached that to newly launched instance. The instance got boot up but unfortunately I am unable to RDP it. I am sure I am giving the right Password as it shows in the connect tab of ec2.
I have attached volume as /dev/sda1 and it worked as instance got boot and comes to running state. But the Problem is I am not able to login to the instance.
Is there anything like administrator password (and other user authentication information) for Windows is only valid in the original instance, and can't be used on the new "hardware" that we are launching the AMI.
This is why RDP connections is failing to newly launched instances, as will any attempts to retrieve the administrator password?
Is there any way to crack this down. Any help will be appreciable..!!
