Install a connector in Amazon Web Services

You can create an EAA connector Amazon Machine Image (AMI) in your Amazon Web Services (AWS) environment.

The connector does not receive traffic from outside but it may need to connect to the EAA cloud instances for configuration and other data. Make sure the security group associated with the connector is set up with the following policy:

  • Outgoing traffic: Allow all.
  • Incoming traffic: Deny all.

How to

  1. Log in to the Enterprise Application Access (EAA) Management Portal.
  2. From the top menu bar click Connectors.
  3. Locate the connector card you created for AWS. It should be of package type Amazon AWS EC2/VPC..
  4. Click the download link to download the CloudFormation template.
  5. Log in to your AWS console and click AWS services menu > AWS CloudFormation > CREATE STACK .

    Note: For the NAT instance type, EAA recommends a minimum of m4.large.
  10. Complete the configuration of tags, storage, and other features as needed. Since AWS does not use swap space for storage use a minimum of 12GB RAM for memory.
  11. Click CREATE. Once the stack creation is complete, the connector instance starts and automatically connects to the EAA cloud.
