Setting up AD on AWS for FMS 16

Question asked by Michael Frankel on Jun 2, 2017

Hi Gang -

 

Has anyone successfully done this?

 

I'm definitely not an AD expert, so I don't know even where to start, however I have a client who wants to do this and I want to know the correct and/or recommend way to do this in case they run into problems or have questions.

 

For reference, they do NOT want to link EC2 instance to their on-premises AD system.

 

Questions I have are:

 

  1. Same machine as FMS 16, worker machine (in 2-machine WebDirect deployment), or separate machine?
  2. Recommended AWS EC2 instance type? (AWS seems to recommend t2.large or higher)
  3. How do I link all the EC2 instances together?
  4. Do I need one machine as a Domain Controller?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks,
