Description

Creates a file share on an existing file gateway. In Storage Gateway, a file share is a file system mount point backed by Amazon S3 cloud storage. Storage Gateway exposes file shares using a Network File System (NFS) interface. This operation is only supported in the file gateway architecture. File gateway requires AWS Security Token Service (AWS STS) to be activated to enable you create a file share. Make sure AWS STS is activated in the region you are creating your file gateway in. If AWS STS is not activated in the region, activate it. For information about how to activate AWS STS, see Activating and Deactivating AWS STS in an AWS Region in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide. File gateway does not support creating hard or symbolic links on a file share.

A unique string value that you supply that is used by file gateway to ensure idempotent file share creation.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-DefaultStorageClass <String>
The default storage class for objects put into an Amazon S3 bucket by file gateway. Possible values are S3_STANDARD or S3_STANDARD_IA. If this field is not populated, the default value S3_STANDARD is used. Optional.
Required?False
Position?Named

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the file gateway on which you want to create a file share.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-KMSEncrypted <Boolean>
True to use Amazon S3 server side encryption with your own AWS KMS key, or false to use a key managed by Amazon S3. Optional.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-KMSKey <String>
The KMS key used for Amazon S3 server side encryption. This value can only be set when KmsEncrypted is true. Optional.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-LocationARN <String>
The ARN of the backed storage used for storing file data.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NFSFileShareDefaults_DirectoryMode <String>
The Unix directory mode in the form "nnnn". For example, "0666" represents the default access mode for all directories inside the file share. The default value is 0777.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NFSFileShareDefaults_FileMode <String>
The Unix file mode in the form "nnnn". For example, "0666" represents the default file mode inside the file share. The default value is 0666.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NFSFileShareDefaults_GroupId <Int64>
The default group ID for the file share (unless the files have another group ID specified). The default value is nfsnobody.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NFSFileShareDefaults_OwnerId <Int64>
The default owner ID for files in the file share (unless the files have another owner ID specified). The default value is nfsnobody.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-ReadOnly <Boolean>
Sets the write status of a file share: "true" if the write status is read-only, and otherwise "false".
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Role <String>
The ARN of the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that a file gateway assumes when it accesses the underlying storage.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Squash <String>
Maps a user to anonymous user. Valid options are the following:
  • "RootSquash" - Only root is mapped to anonymous user.
  • "NoSquash" - No one is mapped to anonymous user.
  • "AllSquash" - Everyone is mapped to anonymous user.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?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 GatewayARN parameter.

Outputs

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