Step 7: Configure AWS SCT to Use the Snowball Edge - AWS Database Migration Service

Step 7: Configure AWS SCT to Use the Snowball Edge

Your AWS SCT service profile must be updated to use the DMS Agent, which is a local AWS DMS that works on-premises.

To update the AWS SCT profile to work with the DMS Agent

  1. Start AWS SCT.

  2. Choose Settings, Global Settings, AWS Service Profiles.

  3. Choose Add New AWS Service Profile.

  4. Add the following profile information.

    For This Parameter Do This

    Profile Name

    Enter a name for your project, which is stored locally on your computer.

    AWS Access Key Enter the AWS access key for the AWS account and AWS Region that you plan to use for the migration. The supplied credentials must have permissions to access the Snowball Edge job in AWS.
    AWS Secret Key Enter the AWS secret key for the AWS account and AWS Region that you plan to use for the migration.
    Region Choose the AWS Region for the account you are using. Your DMS replication instance, S3 bucket, and target data store must be in this AWS Region.
    S3 Bucket folder Enter a name for S3 bucket that you were assigned when you created the Snowball Edge job.
  5. After you have entered the information, choose Test Connection to verify that AWS SCT can connect to the Amazon S3 bucket.

    The OLTP Local & DMS Data Migration section in the pop-up window should show all entries with a status of Pass. If the test fails, the failure is probably because the account you are using is missing privileges to access the Amazon S3 bucket.

  6. If the test passes, choose OK and then OK again to close the window and dialog box.

  7. Choose Import job, choose the Snowball Edge job from the list, and then choose OK.

Now configure AWS SCT to use the Snowball Edge. Enter the IP address of the Snowball Edge, the listening port on the device (the default is 8080), and the Snowball Edge access keys and secret keys you retrieved earlier. Choose OK to save your changes.
