--fsx-filesystem-arn (string)

Specifies the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) for the FSx for Windows File Server file system.

--security-group-arns (list)

Specifies the ARNs of the security groups that provide access to your file system's preferred subnet.

Note

If you choose a security group that doesn't allow connections from within itself, do one of the following:

  • Configure the security group to allow it to communicate within itself.
  • Choose a different security group that can communicate with the mount target's security group.

"string" "string" ...

--tags (list)

Specifies labels that help you categorize, filter, and search for your Amazon Web Services resources. We recommend creating at least a name tag for your location.

(structure)

Represents a single entry in a list of Amazon Web Services resource tags. TagListEntry returns an array that contains a list of tasks when the ListTagsForResource operation is called.

Key -> (string)

The key for an Amazon Web Services resource tag.

Value -> (string)

The value for an Amazon Web Services resource tag.

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

--user (string)

Specifies the user who has the permissions to access files and folders in the file system.

For information about choosing a user name that ensures sufficient permissions to files, folders, and metadata, see user .

--domain (string)

Specifies the name of the Windows domain that the FSx for Windows File Server belongs to.

--password (string)

Specifies the password of the user who has the permissions to access files and folders in the file system.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values. It is not possible to pass arbitrary binary values using a JSON-provided value as the string will be taken literally.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Output

LocationArn -> (string)

The ARN of the FSx for Windows File Server file system location you created.
