InternalServiceException Indicates a problem that must be resolved by Amazon Web Services. This might be a transient error in which case you can retry your request until it succeeds. Otherwise, go to the AWS Service Health Dashboard site to see if there are any operational issues with the service.

LinkNameAlreadyInUseException Indicates that a link could not be created due to a naming conflict. Choose a different name and then try again.
ResourceNotFoundException The specified resource could not be found.
RetryableConflictException Occurs when a conflict with a previous successful write is detected. For example, if a write operation occurs on an object and then an attempt is made to read the object using “SERIALIZABLE” consistency, this exception may result. This generally occurs when the previous write did not have time to propagate to the host serving the current request. A retry (with appropriate backoff logic) is the recommended response to this exception.
UnsupportedIndexTypeException Indicates that the requested index type is not supported.
ValidationException Indicates that your request is malformed in some manner. See the exception message.
