Introduction to Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) - SQL ServerIr al Laboratorio
I'm loving these qwiklabs.
Was pretty good. Was almost more complicated than necessary with having us download adventure works (Which didn't work for me, as Codeplex was down for an upgrade at the time I tried to do this).
Overall I think the lab was straight forward and useful. My database creation initially failed because the default SQL selection is to mirror databases, however we are instructed to set backups to 0. This needs to be updated in the instructions. I am using the latest Firefox as my browser, several of the PowerShell scripts would not copy to my local clipboard from the Qwiklabs web site, I ended up manually typing them into my RDP session.
Would like to go a bit deeper into things like backup/restore via SSMS.
Ended up wasting time. RDP connection failed to Public DNS: ec2-35-165-197-111.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com
Could not log into database server to complete entire lab.
Instructions were horrible for Mac, misworded...and ill-conceived.
