I'm working on a project that requires the use of existing MSDN licenses to stand up Windows Server EC2 instances and, from what I understand, to remain license compliant these need to be provisioned on dedicated instances and/or hosts. I plan to use MSDN licenses for Windows Server, SQL and Dynamics.
As I'm unable to use Amazon provided base AMIs in conjunction with MSDN licenses, this suggests I need to create my own AMI. The AWS documentation suggests using AWS Server Migration Service to migrate on-prem servers (and their licenses) to AWS. However, I'd prefer to stand up these new instances from clean builds. Is there a recommended procedure for importing a base Windows Server AMI into AWS?
