Any active projects on the CDK roadmap for a FSx Windows file system L2 construct? I just searched through the roadmap repo in GitHub and could not find any. I currently use the cfnFileSystem L1 construct to deploy a FSx file system plus an ec2.instance L2 construct to deploy a FSx file gateway appliance. However, I could use support for activating the gateway and attaching a file system to the former. Thanks.
Hi, I'm using FSx for Windows, I need to launch a cleanup script every night on the FSx filesystem. I'm wondering what is the best solution do to that, the script is about 2 hours long. How would you implement this kind of stuf? Thanks Regards
When Fsx is joined to Self Managed AD, a total of 4 Computer Objects of AD are created. This seems to be based on FSX's DNS name or endpoint address. I want to know in detail what exactly the role of each of these Computer Objects is. thank you.
How may I create / run tasks in "what if" mode? Essentially I would like to generate a report of what might occur if I rum a task without actually making any changes to either locations. Source and destination locations are SMB server and FSx for windows file server respectively.
Hi Team, I need to move and sync a folder from FSx storage from AWS Account 1 AWS Regions A, to FSx AWS Account 2 AWS Regions B. How should I set up DataSync for this transfer? If DataSync is not suitable for this task what other AWS services can I use?
Do VPC Endpoints offer any added security (compared with Public Endpoints) when using AWS DataSync to transfer data from on-premises to AWS storage (e.g. Amazon FSx for Windows File Server?) I believe data transfers between the on-prem DataSync agent and the AWS DataSync services are HTTPS (TLS-encrypted)?
Still having issues with it Validating not sure why, the instance has full permissions so Im not sure where to go from here.
I am having an issue with the thumbnails not being shown for images stored on my FSx drive mounted to AWS Workspaces. I have already attempted to troubleshoot the issue by ensuring that the thumbnails are enabled in the file explorer settings, but the issue persists. Any help would be appreciated.
I have connected the fsx drive to the ec2 instance and can view files through the windows explorer. I can not get IIS to serve files from the drive. I have added the virtual drive and can browse to it under IIS but when I test the "connect as..." setting it fails with message: > The path does not exist or environment variables in the path could not be expanded to verify whether it exists. I have tried the EC2 admin user I have tried the active directory admin user(firstname.lastname@example.org) and of courset the IIS passthrough user. I have added everyone to a subfolder in the fsx drive. And tried adding various users to the permissions. Why cant iis find the fsx drive?
Hi Team, I have an FSx for Windows file server in a single AZ. Unfortunately the ENI got detached from the FSx and the file system went to misconfigured state. Please let me know if there is a way to reattach it or get the FSx back to working state. Best, Taras
Are there AWS-based Symbolic Link access restrictions across instances in differents regions and subnets?
In my VPC, I have directory symbolic links allowing a local instance directory access to remote instance Windows UNC shared folders. For example, the link is created like so: : on vm1 mklink /d shared-folder \\vm2-machine\shared-folder With a C++ example console app FindFirstFileA() call, the shared-folder is accessible and can list the files in the shared-folder. However, the actual platform application we develop, does not see the shared-folder. It not a security error, FindFirstFile()/FindNextFile() API called just does not allow access to the folder items. Assuming it was security related anyway, I decide to but the server under the debugger. My development machine is not on AWS. It is at my home office LAN. I duplicated the scenario by mapping a symbolic link to another machine on the local LAN. This worked fine. The LAN is on 192.168. private network, So my question: Are there AWS-based Symbolic Link access restrictions across instances on my AWS VPC where there is different regions and/or subnets? Thanks in advance
[Transfer Family](https://aws.amazon.com/aws-transfer-family/) supports S3 and EFS storage targets, but a project's requirement specifies up/downloaded files be available to Windows EC2 instances via SMB (specifically a [FSx](https://aws.amazon.com/fsx/) share). I would let the EC2 instances mount the EFS volume used by Transfer Family, but [Microsoft](https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/nfs/nfs-overview) says Windows NFS clients can only use NFSv2 or NFSv3. Since Transfer Family doesn't [natively](https://aws.amazon.com/aws-transfer-family/features/#Data_stored_natively_in_AWS_Storage_services) support FSx, is [DataSync](https://aws.amazon.com/datasync/) “between AWS storage services” the best way to support this workflow? As an added twist, we'll probably need to support both uploads (items that arrived via SFTP, consumed by the EC2 instances) and downloads (EC2 instance outputs a file, which will then be fetched by a remote user via SFTP) so we'll need to have [bidirectional](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/datasync/latest/userguide/other-use-cases.html#opposite-direction-tasks) DataSync between the EFS and FSx volumes.
