API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

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.


For PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateNFSFileShareAsync.
