DataStax Academy FAQ

DataStax Academy migrated to a new learning management system (LMS) in July 2020. We are also moving to a new Cassandra Certification process so there are changes to exam bookings, voucher system and issuing of certificates.

What are the credentials for connecting to the AWS instance I created as part of the DS220 DataStax Academy course?

I have followed DS220 instructions (https://s3.amazonaws.com/datastaxtraining/documents/Amazon+AWS+Instructions.pdf) to set up an AWS instance (I am using ami-0d583ade7fe09191c). SSH is enabled. However, I am not able to ssh into my instance.

What are the user name and password I need to ssh into it since I couldn't find any information about that online?


Thanks!

@victor_188679 You will need to log into your AWS instance as the user ubuntu plus the SSH private key you used when you launched the instance in page 10 of Amazon AWS Instructions (the document you linked in your question).

For more information, see the SSH Instructions document for DS220. Cheers!

It works now, using the user ubuntu, that was the part I missed. Thank you Erick for your help!
