Database not refreshing when Windows Machine is shut down, need help

MySql Database is stored on AWS server, we have installed Enterprise gateway on a local windows machine,

If we shut down the local windows machine we get the message

 

Failed Your data gateway is offline or couldn't be reached. 

 

How to set up the "Automatic Refresh" that it should work without a local windows machine switched-on, please help

It is required that your machine is on when the refresh is happening. It is better if you install your gateway on some EC2 machine or on-premise server which is always on.

Hi @cnxanalytics1 

If you have access to the AWS server then better install the Gateway on premises.

I dont have direct link

but using the following link you can create an EC2 instance

https://www.guru99.com/creating-amazon-ec2-instance.html

 

and confirm with infrastructure people, that's its in your network

 

Thens its just windows machine.

Connect and install power BI gateway
