  • Accessing ElastiCache resources from outside AWS Elasticache is a service designed to be used internally to your VPC. External access is discouraged due to the latency of Internet traffic and security concerns. However, if external access to Elasticache is required for test or development purposes, it can be done through a VPN.

    Is this possible for a Redis Cluster , please advise

  • Error Message :

    StackExchange.Redis.RedisConnectionException: 'It was not possible to connect to the redis server(s). Error connecting right now. To allow this multiplexer to continue retrying until it's able to connect, use abortConnect=false in your connection string or AbortOnConnectFail=false; in your code.'

    System.AggregateException: 'One or more errors occurred. (The security token included in the request is invalid.)'

    AmazonSecretsManagerException: The security token included in the request is invalid.
