Course Description

In this challenge, you will create a Windows Server virtual machine by using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). First, you will create a new key pair that you will use to decrypt the password for an EC2 instance. Next, you will create a security group to allow access to an EC2 instance, and then you will create an EC2 instance by using a Windows Server Amazon Machine Image (AMI). Finally, you will download an RDP file to your local computer, and then you will connect to the EC2 instance by using the RDP file. Note: Once you begin the challenge, you will not be able to pause, save, or exit and then return to your challenge. Please ensure that you have set aside enough time to complete the challenge before you start.
