Step 2: Download and Install the AWS Schema Conversion Tool (AWS SCT) - AWS Database Migration Service

Step 2: Download and Install the AWS Schema Conversion Tool (AWS SCT)

You need two local machines to run this process, in addition to the Edge device.

Download the AWS Schema Conversion Tool app and install it on a local machine that can access AWS. For instructions, which include information on compatible operating systems, see Installing and Updating the AWS Schema Conversion Tool.

On a different machine, where you plan to install the DMS Agent, download and install the Snowball Edge client from AWS Snowball Edge Resources.

After you finish this step, you should have two machines:

  • Machine #1 (SCT), with AWS SCT installed

  • Machine #2 (Connectivity), with the Edge client, where you plan to install the DMS Agent and the ODBC drivers for the databases you are migrating
