Options

--subdirectory (string)

A subdirectory in the HDFS cluster. This subdirectory is used to read data from or write data to the HDFS cluster. If the subdirectory isn't specified, it will default to / .

--name-nodes (list)

The NameNode that manages the HDFS namespace. The NameNode performs operations such as opening, closing, and renaming files and directories. The NameNode contains the information to map blocks of data to the DataNodes. You can use only one NameNode.

(structure)

The NameNode of the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). The NameNode manages the file system's namespace. The NameNode performs operations such as opening, closing, and renaming files and directories. The NameNode contains the information to map blocks of data to the DataNodes.

Hostname -> (string)

The hostname of the NameNode in the HDFS cluster. This value is the IP address or Domain Name Service (DNS) name of the NameNode. An agent that's installed on-premises uses this hostname to communicate with the NameNode in the network.

Port -> (integer)

The port that the NameNode uses to listen to client requests.

Shorthand Syntax:

Hostname=string,Port=integer ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Hostname": "string",
    "Port": integer
  }
  ...
]

--block-size (integer)

The size of data blocks to write into the HDFS cluster. The block size must be a multiple of 512 bytes. The default block size is 128 mebibytes (MiB).

--replication-factor (integer)

The number of DataNodes to replicate the data to when writing to the HDFS cluster. By default, data is replicated to three DataNodes.

--kms-key-provider-uri (string)

The URI of the HDFS cluster's Key Management Server (KMS).

--qop-configuration (structure)

The Quality of Protection (QOP) configuration specifies the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) and data transfer protection settings configured on the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) cluster. If QopConfiguration isn't specified, RpcProtection and DataTransferProtection default to PRIVACY . If you set RpcProtection or DataTransferProtection , the other parameter assumes the same value.

RpcProtection -> (string)

The RPC protection setting configured on the HDFS cluster. This setting corresponds to your hadoop.rpc.protection setting in your core-site.xml file on your Hadoop cluster.

DataTransferProtection -> (string)

The data transfer protection setting configured on the HDFS cluster. This setting corresponds to your dfs.data.transfer.protection setting in the hdfs-site.xml file on your Hadoop cluster.

Shorthand Syntax:

RpcProtection=string,DataTransferProtection=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "RpcProtection": "DISABLED"|"AUTHENTICATION"|"INTEGRITY"|"PRIVACY",
  "DataTransferProtection": "DISABLED"|"AUTHENTICATION"|"INTEGRITY"|"PRIVACY"
}

--authentication-type (string)

The type of authentication used to determine the identity of the user.

Possible values:

  • SIMPLE
  • KERBEROS

--simple-user (string)

The user name used to identify the client on the host operating system.

Note

If SIMPLE is specified for AuthenticationType , this parameter is required.

--kerberos-principal (string)

The Kerberos principal with access to the files and folders on the HDFS cluster.

Note

If KERBEROS is specified for AuthenticationType , this parameter is required.

--kerberos-keytab (blob)

The Kerberos key table (keytab) that contains mappings between the defined Kerberos principal and the encrypted keys. You can load the keytab from a file by providing the file's address. If you're using the CLI, it performs base64 encoding for you. Otherwise, provide the base64-encoded text.

Note

If KERBEROS is specified for AuthenticationType , this parameter is required.

--kerberos-krb5-conf (blob)

The krb5.conf file that contains the Kerberos configuration information. You can load the krb5.conf file by providing the file's address. If you're using the CLI, it performs the base64 encoding for you. Otherwise, provide the base64-encoded text.

Note

If KERBEROS is specified for AuthenticationType , this parameter is required.

--agent-arns (list)

The Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) of the agents that are used to connect to the HDFS cluster.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--tags (list)

The key-value pair that represents the tag that you want to add to the location. The value can be an empty string. We recommend using tags to name your resources.

(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 ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--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 source HDFS cluster location that's created.
