In order to set up your MGN connector, take the following steps:

  1. Make sure your account have the required permissions as defined here.

  2. If the MGN connector manages source servers from multiple accounts, set up the global view feature and set up your AWS Organization, following the instructions here.

    After you set up your AWS Organization, configure the CloudFormation StackSet in order to create the required role per management account. Use the template "Enable Application Migration Service Connector access". Full instructions are available here.

  3. If the MGN connector manages source servers from a single account, and both the MGN connector and the source servers belong to the same account:

    1. After replacing ACCOUNT-ID with your account number, create a role using the following trust policy:

    2. Attach the AWSApplicationMigrationAgentInstallationPolicy policy to the Permission policies.

    3. Name the role AWSApplicationMigrationConnectorSharingRole_ACCOUNT-ID (replace ACCOUNT-ID with your account number).
