    Default AWS migration

    I am in the process of test a migration to AWS. My current production linux server had the database and PDI installed on it. in my AWS environment I have an RDS database which is where the kettle database is at and a task instance which is where PDI is installed on. I can start a kitchen job which will complete step one (which is to drop the data in a table) but error on step two (run a query to add data to a table). After a week of trying to fix it i am out of options. Can someone please put me on the right path to correct this.

    I think there is a problem with your database connection .Before running the transformation test your database connection once .
