Step 8: Create AWS DMS Source and Target Endpoints

While your replication instance is being created, you can specify the source and target database endpoints using the AWS Management Console. However, you can only test connectivity after the replication instance has been created, because the replication instance is used in the connection.

To specify source or target database endpoints using the AWS console

  1. Specify your connection information for the source Oracle database and the target Amazon Aurora MySQL database. The following table describes the source settings.

    For This Parameter Do This

    Endpoint Identifier

    Type Orasource (the Amazon RDS Oracle endpoint).

    Source Engine

    Choose oracle.

    Server name

    Provide the Oracle DB instance name. This is the Server name you used for AWS SCT, such as "do1xa4grferti8y.cqiw4tcs0mg7.us-west-2.rds.amazonaws.com".

    Port

    Type 1521.

    SSL mode

    Choose None.

    Username

    Type oraadmin.

    Password

    Provide the password for the Oracle DB instance.

    SID

    Provide the Oracle database name.

    The following table describes the target settings.

    For This Parameter Do This

    Endpoint Identifier

    Type Aurtarget (the Amazon Aurora MySQL endpoint).

    Target Engine

    Choose aurora.

    Servername

    Provide the Aurora MySQL DB instance name. This is the Server name you used for AWS SCT, such as "dmsdemo-auroracluster-1u1oyqny35jwv.cluster-cqiw4tcs0mg7.us-west-2.rds.amazonaws.com"

    .

    Port

    Type 3306.

    SSL mode

    Choose None.

    Username

    Type auraadmin.

    Password

    Provide the password for the Aurora MySQL DB instance.

    The completed page should look like the following:

    
                                 Advanced section
  2. In order to disable foreign key checks during the initial data load, you must add the following commands to the target Aurora MySQL DB instance. In the Advanced section, shown following, type the following commands for Extra connection attributes: initstmt=SET FOREIGN_KEY_CHECKS=0, autocommit=1

    The first command disables foreign key checks during a load, and the second command commits the transactions that DMS executes.

    
                                 Advanced section
  3. Choose Next.
