SQL Server in Amazon EC2: Getting StartedGo to Lab
Half of the things did not work!
I am not really a WIndows guru. I cannot believe how complicated this setup was. I sincerely hope that setting up DBs in a Linux environment will be easier. I managed to successfully get to step #143 at which point I couldn't go further even when restarting both sql servers (didn't try restarting instance).
ping failed. no help on where to check for an error
I've been working with Windows on AWS for a few years now, so this lab was fairly basic for me. That said, it is a good overview of the components and techniques to set up a windows environment in the cloud.
couldnt remote acces the server with rdesktop
