Configuration for Oracle Database Application Migration to an Amazon EC2 Instance

You must have an Amazon EC2 account that contains an Amazon Machine Image (AMI).

The following options are available for EC2 instance creation:

  • After you create an Amazon Machine Image, you can create an EC2 instance.

  • When you perform the migration, configure the Commvault software to create the instance.

For instructions on creating the following in Amazon Web Services, see Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud Documentation.

  1. Create an Amazon account.

  2. Obtain a user access key by using AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM). For more information, see Managing Access Keys for IAM Users. You use the IAM user access keys to control access to specific AWS services and resources for an AWS account.

  3. Create an Amazon Security Group with the appropriate rules. For more information, see Amazon Security Groups for Linux Instances.

  4. Create an Amazon Machine Image for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL 7). It is recommended that you use the RHEL-7.4_HVM-20180103-x86_64-2-Hourly2-GP2 (ami-26ebbc5c) template. For more information, see Creating an Instance Store-Backed Linux AMI.

  5. You can use an AMI available from Amazon, or create your own custom AMI. If you create a custom AMI, you must verify that it is valid before you use the Commvault software.

    This is the AMI that hosts the EC2 instance.

  6. If you do not have an Amazon key pair, you must create one. For more information, see Amazon EC2 Key Pairs.

  7. Configure the permissions to access AWS resources. When you use the access key and secret key for an IAM user, you must have appropriate permissions, which can be any of the following:

    • Amazon EC2 Full Access

    • Administrator Access

    • Custom permissions to access AWS resources.

Record all of the Amazon information, for example, the user and the key pair, before you start the Commvault configuration.
