I have setup a Windows network in an Amazon in a VPC. I have setup two SQL servers and configured Always On. Everything works OK, except that I cannot connect to the SQL Server using the AAG Listener IP from any other computer in the network except from the Primary Node.

I also cannot ping the Listener IP or the Cluster IP.

For the servers the IPS are specified on the NIC.

AAG ListenerL:

Any ideas?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I got a response from Amazon

"Cluster IPs aren't supported in VPC at this time."

Have to admit not sure I am confident enough to put a cluster or an Always On Group in a cloud scenario, only just confident enough to put simple standalone, small instance on the cloud. – Richard Brown Jan 23 '15 at 14:19
