We have implemented AWS backup solution to backup the vms in SDDC ( VMC) . There are about 100's of vms to be backup and we have 4 Backup gateway appliances installed. As per the documentation AWS backup gateway allows 4 concurrent vms per Backup gateway. We tried increasing the Backup window and still failing. Question : is there a way to monitor the Backup gateway appliance and the time taken per vm and per backup task ? How do we know/estimate the number of backup gateway appliances are needed to size the backup window?
hello, among the many AWS services, which is the one to create a cloud storage and access via network drive from "Computer", like FTP service, as if it were a shared folder?
I've backed up 7 on premise VMs to AWS using AWS Backup. By all indications the 7 machine backups were completed successfully 2 days in a row. In attempting to restore a single VM from AWS back to on premise, the error is given: *"Invalid request detected during virtual machine creation. Aborted restore job"* A solution isn't apparent in the documentation: https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/storage/backup-and-restore-on-premises-vmware-virtual-machines-using-aws-backup/ Can anyone offer some clues as to how to troubleshoot through this? Thank you in advance. Vcenter version: 188.8.131.5200 Hypervisor VMware ESXi, 7.0.0
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.

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?
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
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
Hi Gurus, I am working on setting up VMC on AWS. Can anybody please advise with Bill of materials(minimum required template) for setting up VMC on AWS? Thanks Jo
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

Hello, Is anyone aware of how to convert SEsparce VMware images into AMIs? Doesn't look like it's supported in the [VM Import/Export tool](https://docs.aws.amazon.com/vm-import/latest/userguide/what-is-vmimport.html).
