Deploying to AWS with Citrix Smart Deploy – no NAT instance was detected

Situation:

During the deployment of a blueprint via Citrix Smart Tools > Smart Deploy we came across the following error when attempting to deploy to our AWS Resource Location

The following problems were detected with your configuration
Please re-configure as no NAT instance was detected in this AWS Resource location

Solution:

The blueprint / Citrix tools don’t seem to (yet) support AWS NAT Gateways. This also certainly wont work with the default VPC. To solve this we spun up a new NAT Instance in our own VPC with the servers in separate private subnets in order for the wizard to proceed / succeed. Also note If you deploy to the public subnet you need to provide an elastic IP address.
