SQL Server RDS migration to EC2 SQL Server


Hi, Has anybody ever done a migration of SQL Server from RDS to on-prem or EC2 SQL? I'm struggling to find a way to migrate the databases across. Any pointers would be much appreciated.

What exact issues are you running into? Easiest way would be to perform a native backup on to s3 and then download the backup to your ec2 or on-prem machine and restore it. Please take a a look at this blog on how to configure native backup.

  • Ah apologies, the existing backup that I tried to use was corrupt, I took a fresh backup and it has worked perfectly. Many Thanks!
