Amazon RDS currently does not support the following SQL Server features:
Distributed Queries (i.e., Linked Servers)
Database Log Shipping
Change Data Capture (CDC) - Consider using Change Tracking as an alternative to CDC.
The ability to run Reporting, Analysis, Integration, or Master Data Services on the same server as the DB instance. If you need to do this, we recommend that you either install SQL Server on an Amazon EC2 instance or use an on-premise SQL Server instance to act as the Reporting, Analysis, Integration, or Master Data Services server.
