Using the Application Migration Service Console - Application Migration Service

Using the Application Migration Service Console

Application Migration Service is AWS Region-specific. Ensure that you select the correct Region from the Select a Region menu when using Application Migration Service, just like you would with other AWS Region-specific services such as Amazon EC2.

Application Migration Service is divided into several primary pages. Each page contains additional tabs and actions. The default view for the Application Migration Service Console is the Source servers page. This page automatically opens every time you open Application Migration Service.

You can navigate to other Application Migration Service pages through the left-hand Application Migration Service navigation menu. You can also access the AWS Migration Hub and the Application Migration Service documentation through this menu.

Each Application Migration Service page will open in the right-hand main view. Here, you can interact with the various tabs, actions, and settings on the page.

Source servers page

The Source servers page lists all of the source servers you added to Application Migration Service and allows you to interact with your servers and perform a variety of actions. Learn more about the source servers page.

  • To control your source servers within the Application Migration Service Console, use the Actions, Replication, and Test and cutover menus. The commands within those menus influence the specific source servers you have selected. You can select a single source server or multiple source servers for any command by checking the box to the left of the server name.

  • To review the progress of all commands, use the Launch history tab. Learn more about Launch history.

  • Use the Filter source servers... box to filter servers based on a variety of parameters.

Application Migration Service color codes the state of each source server. Use the Alerts column to easily determine the state of your server.

A clock icon with gray text indicates that the server is experiencing temporary issues. The nature of the issue will be identified (for example, "Lagging").

A red x and text indicates that the server is experiencing significant issues that need to be addressed before replication can resume. The nature of the issue will be indicated (for example, "Stalled")

When various commands are initiated, Application Migration Service will display information messages at the top of the Source Servers page. Application Migration Service color codes these messages for clarity.

  • A green message indicates that a command was completed successfully.

  • A red message means that a command was not completed successfully.

Each message shows details and links to supplemental information.

Application Migration Service allows you to interact with and manage each server. Choose the source server name to be redirected to the Server details view.

The Server details tab shows specific details for an individual server. From here, you can review the server's migration lifecycle and health, view various technical details, manage tags, manage disks, edit the server's replication settings, and edit the server's launch settings through the various tabs. Learn more about the Server details view.

Certain Application Migration Service commands, such as Edit replication settings, allow you to interact with multiple source servers at once. When multiple source servers are selected by checking the box to the left of the server name and the Replication > Edit replication settings option is chosen, Application Migration Service will indicate which servers are being edited.

For your changes to take effect, click Save at the bottom of each settings page.
