I launched a new Windows Server 2016 on AWS.
When packaging up an EC2 to pass on to clients or to the AWS Marketplace
I am not sure what the issues were. I have switched back and forth to between SVR 2012 and 2016. I don’t do fancy stuff, just resetting the password
I copied this for a script, but did it manually in powershell,
After this you can create the image which will have a new password.
You need to restart your original instance in order for it to assign a new password.
Follow instructions at the link below if you if you want to change stuff like wallpaper, drive mappings or set a specific password.
