Amazon WorkSpaces and Trouble Shooting
We recently rolled out 50 WorkSpaces to a division of the company and when things are all working properly, things work great! However, when there are issues, we struggle so I'm here looking for some best practices. Due to corporate policies, we only run the WorkSpaces Web Client. The native clients aren't allowed on our corporate machines... Our most common issue is at the start of the day a user will log in to the web client, their machine will start up (I can verify this at the console) but they'll just go to a spinning "connecting" page forever. There's no apparent reason why. We try a variety of things, but I'm never sure what actually solves the issue: * Close the browser tab, then close the browser. * Re-open the browser, try again. * No luck? Clear cache/cookies in the browser, try again. * Try another browser! * Still no luck? Stop the WorkSpaces machine via the AWS console, try again At some point in this dance, things usually work. And I should be clear. For all users, we're in great shape over 95% of the time. There's no consistency in anyone person having more issues than any other. What else should we be trying? There's precious little info in the console so we're sort of flying blind here. This weekend we had an issue where NOBODY could connect. This morning still nobody could connect (35 people all over the city/country). Support, of course, wanted to zero in on one random machine and get network logs from it. We'll never know what the issue was because at 7:30 AM all of the sudden EVERYONE connected. Lol. How do you root cause analyze that? ;-)
How to pass connection information between two dependent windows instances during cloudformation?
I am doing a lift and shift with software from an on-premises architecture. There are two servers (main and auxiliary) that have to talk to one another over the network. I currently have tested and confirmed that I can manually add their hostnames and private IP address to the hosts file (`"C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts"`) and the software works fine. For those that don't know, this file is used by Windows to map a network hostname like `EC2AM-1A2B3C` to a IP address. So if I added the hostname and IP address of the main server into the hosts file of the auxiliary server, then the auxiliary server could route to the main server. (i.e. `PS> ping EC2AM-1A2B3C` would then work). How could I pass the required information to both servers? They both have to know the other server's private IP address and hostname. If this is not possible at server spin-up time, how might the servers connect and pass this information? I would really like to automate this if possible.
There is an error that changes to "??" when I type Korean on the server.
There is an error that changes to "??" when I type Korean on the server. I wonder if the hosting server environment is UTF-8. It seems that the server doesn't accept Korean, so I want to know the solution. ![여기에 이미지 설명 입력](/media/postImages/original/IMAWaClJV_RFCwNUW2pk65DA)

Windows faster launch fails - SSM is not enabled, user script is not executed
IHAC who is using windows faster launch feature is seeing issues with the launch once out of 5 launches. When the AMI launch fails, SSM service is not activated and User data scripts are not executed. They are not able to find out the reason for AMI launch failure. Customer is also having challenges as with SSM service not coming up they can’t log into the EC2 instance (RDP is locked down due to the InfoSec security requirements) to download log files. Is there any other option to offload the logs
AWS Workstation Admin
I am struggling to figure out how administrate a SIMPLE AD from within a Workspace. I have created a workspace with a new domain, and run up a Windows instance. When I added the AD DS and AD LDS Tool & DNS Server Tools, I was unable to edit any of the Users. Reading the help guides, it mentioned that you need to manage it via an EC2 instance. So, I Run up an EC2 instance on the same domain, but now when I look at changing it tells me I need to be a domain admin, as I'm logged in as a local user. None of my user log ins work with EC2, and i'm completely locked out from being able to manage the AD. How do I gain access to Admin the SIMPLE AD on a Workspace domain?
NLA error after updating instance type
Hello, Have a domain joined t3.2xlarge instance that I would like to upgrade to m6i.2xlarge according to the compute optimizer recommendation. But after modifying the instance type, I receive the NLA error: ![NLA error](/media/postImages/original/IMCmYahnVfQLCraabtIg0DWA) Cannot even RDP using the local Administrator account, the same NLA error displays. This instance exists in ap-southeast-2 and done a few tests. 1. Changing back to t3.2xlarge, connected using domain credentials OK 2. Changing to m5.2xlarge, connected using domain crendentials OK 3. Added another NIC when it was on m6i.2xlarge, NLA error on the second interface. 4. (Don't think this matters, the instance is HVM) Upgraded to the latest PV driver, changing instance type to m6i.2xlarge, NLA error. 5. Launched a m6i.2xlarge instance in a different subnet(AZ), joined domain OK, connected using domain crendentials OK; changed to t3.2xlarge, NLA error; changed back to m6i.2xlarge, connected using domain crendentials OK 6. Launched another m6i.2xlarge instance in the same subnet as the t3.2xlarge, swapped the root volume, NLA error. Swapped back the volumes, connected OK. Has anyone encountered this fault? How can I perform the necessary upgrade? Kind regards, Ken

I cannot install the OpenSSH server feature either programmatically or manually. I have to go back to the 2022.10.12 AMI or run Windows Update to get the latest cumulative KB. Let me know where I can report it. Thanks.
