Options

--subdirectory (string)

The subdirectory in the SMB file system that is used to read data from the SMB source location or write data to the SMB destination. The SMB path should be a path that's exported by the SMB server, or a subdirectory of that path. The path should be such that it can be mounted by other SMB clients in your network.

Note

Subdirectory must be specified with forward slashes. For example, /path/to/folder .

To transfer all the data in the folder you specified, DataSync needs to have permissions to mount the SMB share, as well as to access all the data in that share. To ensure this, either ensure that the user/password specified belongs to the user who can mount the share, and who has the appropriate permissions for all of the files and directories that you want DataSync to access, or use credentials of a member of the Backup Operators group to mount the share. Doing either enables the agent to access the data. For the agent to access directories, you must additionally enable all execute access.

--server-hostname (string)

The name of the SMB server. This value is the IP address or Domain Name Service (DNS) name of the SMB server. An agent that is installed on-premises uses this hostname to mount the SMB server in a network.

Note

This name must either be DNS-compliant or must be an IP version 4 (IPv4) address.

--user (string)

The user who can mount the share, has the permissions to access files and folders in the SMB share.

For information about choosing a user name that ensures sufficient permissions to files, folders, and metadata, see the User setting for SMB locations.

--domain (string)

The name of the Windows domain that the SMB server belongs to.

--password (string)

The password of the user who can mount the share, has the permissions to access files and folders in the SMB share.

--agent-arns (list)

The Amazon Resource Names (ARNs) of agents to use for a Simple Message Block (SMB) location.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--mount-options (structure)

The mount options used by DataSync to access the SMB server.

Version -> (string)

Specifies the SMB version that you want DataSync to use when mounting your SMB share. If you don't specify a version, DataSync defaults to AUTOMATIC and chooses a version based on negotiation with the SMB server.

Shorthand Syntax:

Version=string

JSON Syntax:

{
  "Version": "AUTOMATIC"|"SMB2"|"SMB3"
}

--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)

A key-value pair representing a single tag that's been applied to an Amazon Web Services resource.

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.

Global Options

--debug (boolean)

Turn on debug logging.

--endpoint-url (string)

Override command's default URL with the given URL.

--no-verify-ssl (boolean)

By default, the AWS CLI uses SSL when communicating with AWS services. For each SSL connection, the AWS CLI will verify SSL certificates. This option overrides the default behavior of verifying SSL certificates.

--no-paginate (boolean)

Disable automatic pagination.

--output (string)

The formatting style for command output.

  • json
  • text
  • table

--query (string)

A JMESPath query to use in filtering the response data.

--profile (string)

Use a specific profile from your credential file.

--region (string)

The region to use. Overrides config/env settings.

--version (string)

Display the version of this tool.

--color (string)

Turn on/off color output.

  • on
  • off
  • auto

--no-sign-request (boolean)

Do not sign requests. Credentials will not be loaded if this argument is provided.

--ca-bundle (string)

The CA certificate bundle to use when verifying SSL certificates. Overrides config/env settings.

--cli-read-timeout (int)

The maximum socket read time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket read will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

--cli-connect-timeout (int)

The maximum socket connect time in seconds. If the value is set to 0, the socket connect will be blocking and not timeout. The default value is 60 seconds.

Output

LocationArn -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the source SMB file system location that is created.
