In this lab, you will take what you have learned about Instance Scheduler and deploy the solution to the lab AWS account. You will use SSM Session Manager to access the provided `SchedulerAdmin` EC2 instance that has the scheduler CLI already installed and configure the appropriate IAM permissions for the instance. You will also configure periods and schedules for different dinosaurs (AWS resources) based on the proposed sleep schedule and associate each dinosaur with their own schedule.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Deploy Instance Scheduler
Using the AWS Instance Scheduler documentation, deploy Instance Scheduler to the lab AWS account. Make sure to set scheduling for both EC2 and RDS resources.
- Log In to the SchedulerAdmin Instance
Using SSM Session Manager, connect and get logged into the
SchedulerAdmininstance provided with the lab.
- Use the Scheduler CLI to Configure Periods for the Dinosaur Sleep Schedules
Update the IAM role for the
SchedulerAdmininstance to include the SchedulerAdminPolicy permission for scheduler CLI commands. Then use the scheduler CLI to configure periods based on the following sleep schedule table:
Name Breed Wake-Up Time Bed Time Stacy Stegosaurus 7 a.m. UTC 9 p.m. UTC Terrance T-Rex 9 a.m. UTC 10 p.m. UTC Ralph Raptor 6 a.m. UTC 9:30 p.m. UTC Roxy* Raptor 6 a.m. & 1:30 p.m. UTC 1:15 p.m. & 9:30 p.m. UTC Tami Triceratops 11 a.m. UTC 8:30 p.m. UTC
NOTE: Roxy needs to get a checkup by her doctors every day due to a recent surgery
- Use the Scheduler CLI to Configure Schedules for Each Dinosaur
Create a unique schedule for each dinosaur and associate the periods created to the appropriate schedules. All schedules should have the timezone set to UTC and the
- Tag Each Dinosaur with Their Schedule
Using the table below to map the dinosaurs to their respective AWS resources, tag each AWS resource with the dinosaur’s schedule:
Dinosaur Name AWS Resource Stacy EC2 – t3.micro Terrance RDS – t3.micro Ralph EC2 – t3.micro Roxy EC2 – t3.micro Tami EC2 – t3.micro
