Synopsis

Invokes the ActivateGateway operation against AWS Storage Gateway.

Syntax

Enable-SGGateway
-ActivationKey <String>
-GatewayName <String>
-GatewayTimezone <String>
-GatewayRegion <String>
-GatewayType <String>
-MediumChangerType <String>
-TapeDriveType <String>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Activates the gateway you previously deployed on your host. For more information, see Activate the AWS Storage Gateway. In the activation process, you specify information such as the region you want to use for storing snapshots or tapes, the time zone for scheduled snapshots the gateway snapshot schedule window, an activation key, and a name for your gateway. The activation process also associates your gateway with your account; for more information, see UpdateGatewayInformation. You must turn on the gateway VM before you can activate your gateway.

Parameters

-ActivationKey <String>
Your gateway activation key. You can obtain the activation key by sending an HTTP GET request with redirects enabled to the gateway IP address (port 80). The redirect URL returned in the response provides you the activation key for your gateway in the query string parameter activationKey. It may also include other activation-related parameters, however, these are merely defaults -- the arguments you pass to the ActivateGateway API call determine the actual configuration of your gateway.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )
-Force <SwitchParameter>
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-GatewayName <String>
The name you configured for your gateway.
Required?False
Position?2
Accept pipeline input?False
-GatewayRegion <String>
A value that indicates the region where you want to store your data. The gateway region specified must be the same region as the region in your Host header in the request. For more information about available regions and endpoints for AWS Storage Gateway, see Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services Glossary. Valid Values: "us-east-1", "us-east-2", "us-west-1", "us-west-2", "ca-central-1", "eu-west-1", "eu-central-1", "eu-west-2", "ap-northeast-1", "ap-northeast-2", "ap-southeast-1", "ap-southeast-2", "ap-south-1", "sa-east-1"
Required?False

-GatewayTimezone <String>
A value that indicates the time zone you want to set for the gateway. The time zone is of the format "GMT-hr:mm" or "GMT+hr:mm". For example, GMT-4:00 indicates the time is 4 hours behind GMT. GMT+2:00 indicates the time is 2 hours ahead of GMT. The time zone is used, for example, for scheduling snapshots and your gateway's maintenance schedule.
Required?False
Position?3
Accept pipeline input?False
-GatewayType <String>
A value that defines the type of gateway to activate. The type specified is critical to all later functions of the gateway and cannot be changed after activation. The default value is STORED. Valid Values: "STORED", "CACHED", "VTL", "FILE_S3"
Required?False

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileLocation <String>

Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)

If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.

As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-EndpointUrl <String>

The endpoint to make the call against.

Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.

Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String object to this cmdlet for the ActivationKey parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a String object. The service call response (type Amazon.StorageGateway.Model.ActivateGatewayResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
