AWS Backup with VMWare Standalone ESXi Host - Failed to upload backup during data ingestion
I have a standalone ESXi host (v7.0.3) that I'm trying to configure a couple of VMs to backup with AWS Backup. I've been able to setup a gateway, add the hypervisor and VMs and all reports as online/working but any time I try to create an on demand backup for any VM I get the error - > Failed to upload backup during data ingestion. Aborted backup job I've checked the vmware log for the VM and can see it successfully consolidate the disk and create snapshots (and later delete the snapshot during cleanup) but nothing to explain the error. To rule out any permissions issue with the hypervisor, I tried adding the account AWS is using for backup to the admin role on the hypervisor - no difference. Where can I find more information about the error and what might cause it? Any info/help appreciated.
Get current instance features from within said instance
I've been working on some code that would benefit from some level of awareness about the platform on which its running. When it runs on bare metal, several options are available (lshw, hwloc and so on). In EC2 instances, this task is not so straight forward, as they run on virtualization (excluding bare metal instances, evidently). Running 'lshw' for instance, lists the hardware, that not necessarily corresponds with available resources. As an example, running lshw on a t2.micro instance, which has 1 default core available, gives the actual model of the CPU on which it is running, a Intel Xeon with 12 cores. I understand that I am able to fetch [instance metadata](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/ec2-instance-metadata.html), find which instance type the code is running on and use AWS CLI and/or EC2 API to get [the description of the instance](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/APIReference/ec2-api.pdf). The issue with that workaround is that it presupposes that the current instance has either the AWS CLI configured with proper credentials or that the user credentials are available as environment variables to the system, which may or may not be true. I've been looking for a more general solution, that could work, at least, on the most popular Linux distros, such as querying the system about actually available resources (cpus cores, threads, memory, cache and accelerators) but have so far failed to find a suitable solution. Is this possible? Or in this circumstances such query is not a possibility?
Instance EC2 Audio Input from Cloud Machine AWS to Remote PC.
Hi, I am Eko. I need help with how the connection from Cloud Machine AWS to Remote PC [my PC]? I've researched the setup of Cloud Machine AWS. but only work on Output Audio still not connected to the input Audio from Remote PC. I am very grateful for all the answers and responses
Encrypted VPN Connectivity from VMC on AWS SDDC to On-Premise DC
Dear Team, I have the following setup requirements between VMware on AWS SDDC and on-Premise DC. 1. Need an encrypted VPN Solution between SDDC and On-Premise DC. 2. Need an Encrypted VPN Solution between SideCar VPC and On-Premise DC. 3. We have direct connect setup between DC and AWS. 4. Protected firewall sitting behind the edge device in on-Premise DC , encrypted VPN setup on DX need two set of public. Firewall sitting behind edge devise VPN connectivity but that firewall could not configured with public ip. The last hop where the public ip could be configured is the edge devise on the customer site. As per my understanding, I can use the public VIF on direct connect to setup the encrypted VPN connection between the client edge devise and AWS router. But the problem statement in this case is 1. How to setup the encrypted VPN solution for both SDDC and sidecar VPC? Can we route the traffic from SDDC to VTGW to TGW(of the sidecar account) and then leverage public VIF to setup encrypted VPN from TGW to customer edge devise? 2. Do we need the DX gateway to setup the encrypted VPN connectivity? 3. Encrypted VPN on DX would need to set of public IPS. What if the customer firewall is not having the option to configure the public IP for encrypted VPN ? 4. Can I use the DX setup in one OU to create the public VIF for another account in separate OU. This is required because I am looking to create the encrypted VPN connection from two OUs to the DC. Please advise with your comments or if there is any reference architecture available with VMC/AWS. Many Thanks Rio
There’s piracy of NBA AND NFL games being live streamed on the Amazon cloud front
Cloud front with more than 20 million views per month alongside child exploitations and it’s all being completely ignored since November 2021 and AWS has control over everything on the cloud front so why wouldn’t they remove that??? AWS even deleted one of my cases regarding this 9494299111
VMware HCX between two VMware Cloud on AWS SDDCs
I am working with a partner that is having some difficulties setting up a test on-prem vSphere environment where they can test VMware HCX capabilities with VMware Cloud on AWS. While that is being sorted out internally within their teams, other options to provide such an environment are being considered. Can another VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC be simulated to be an on-prem environment? As HCX is included with VMware Cloud on AWS, can you run a VPN between two VMC SDDCs and use HCX to perform migration? I understand that the process of setting up HCX in an on-prem vSphere environment is completely different. But I'd still like to know if this is technically possible or not.
VMware Cloud on AWS and AWS External IP range for firewall access
A customer is configuring firewall rules between their test on-premises environment and the VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) on Software Defined Data Center (SDDC). Since, they won’t know the allocated Public IP Addresses for the SDDC HCX and vCenter Instances until the SDDC is deployed, their security team would like to add the AWS Public IP Address Pools to the required FW rules. I know we have the [AWS IP Ranges JSON]. From my research it appears that Elastic IPs can be from the AMAZON or the EC2 service pools. Do the SDDC and appliances (for example: HCX and vCenter) receive a public IP Address from the EC2 & AMAZON Service Pools from this list? : https://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/aws-ip-ranges.html#aws-ip-egress-control
