Greetings from the other side! I'm working on improving my Windows knowledge, and I'd like to replicate something I can do in Linux with Windows servers: Spinning up an EC2 instance and installing and configuring MySQL.

I haven't been able to find any way to automate this down to one command. What I'm trying to avoid is spending a lot of time rebuilding my environment while I'm testing things out.

If anybody has some batch files (I think that's what you call shell scripts here) or tips I'd appreciate it.

To anyone who finds this thread, here's how I ended up doing it:

First, I started a Windows machine in EC2 and used these instructions to enable SSH via RDP. Then I created my own custom AMI and used that to deploy on.

I'm disappointed that this is how I had to do it. There must be a way to take a standard Windows EC2 AMI and deploy it without RDP.
