Cluster aware updating services for AWS

Copper Contributor

HI all,


Sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question.


Its only a simple one though, the Cluster Aware updating service, am I able to use this on Windows clusters in AWS? I.E we have a few IIS/SQL clusters within AWS I want to try and get on to automated updates but the documentation doesn't exactly say if it will work with AWS services.


Anyone successfully set it up before?

Looks to be doable. You could test the update readiness here.

I have read all the docs etc. Which is one thing that brought me to asking the question specifically for AWS, I am guessing mostly because they are VMs in the "cloud", it should work as normal as if it was a VM in VMWare/Hyper-V cheers for your reply bud!


I think I'll just trial and test the dev environment first. :)


I'll try to remember to update this post once I have done my tests just in case anyone else might have the same query in the future.

Sounds good. Testing update readiness should be non destructive.
