  2. Create the Amazon EC2 role. The Amazon EC2 role is used when you create an EC2 system in the Redshift cluster. For more information about creating the Amazon EC2 role, see the AWS documentation.
  3. Create an EC2 instance. Assign the Amazon EC2 role that you created in step #2 to the EC2 instance.
  4. Create the Amazon Redshift Role ARN for secure access to Amazon Redshift resources. You can use the Amazon Redshift Role ARN in the UNLOAD and COPY commands. For more information about creating the Amazon Redshift Role ARN, see the AWS documentation.
  5. Add the Amazon Redshift Role ARN to the Amazon Redshift cluster to successfully perform the read and write operations. For more information about adding the Amazon Redshift Role ARN to the Amazon Redshift cluster, see the AWS documentation.
