[ aws . directconnect ]

associate-connection-with-lag

Description

Associates an existing connection with a link aggregation group (LAG). The connection is interrupted and re-established as a member of the LAG (connectivity to AWS is interrupted). The connection must be hosted on the same AWS Direct Connect endpoint as the LAG, and its bandwidth must match the bandwidth for the LAG. You can re-associate a connection that's currently associated with a different LAG; however, if removing the connection would cause the original LAG to fall below its setting for minimum number of operational connections, the request fails.

Any virtual interfaces that are directly associated with the connection are automatically re-associated with the LAG. If the connection was originally associated with a different LAG, the virtual interfaces remain associated with the original LAG.

For interconnects, any hosted connections are automatically re-associated with the LAG. If the interconnect was originally associated with a different LAG, the hosted connections remain associated with the original LAG.

Synopsis

  associate-connection-with-lag
--connection-id <value>
--lag-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--connection-id (string)

The ID of the connection. For example, dxcon-abc123.

--lag-id (string)

The ID of the LAG with which to associate the connection. For example, dxlag-abc123.

--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.

Examples

To associate a connection with a LAG

The following example associates the specified connection with the specified LAG.

Command:

aws directconnect associate-connection-with-lag --lag-id dxlag-fhccu14t --connection-id dxcon-fg9607vm

Output:

{
  "ownerAccount": "123456789012",
  "connectionId": "dxcon-fg9607vm",
  "lagId": "dxlag-fhccu14t",
  "connectionState": "requested",
  "bandwidth": "1Gbps",
  "location": "EqDC2",
  "connectionName": "Con2ForLag",
  "region": "us-east-1"
}

Output

ownerAccount -> (string)

The ID of the AWS account that owns the connection.

connectionId -> (string)

The ID of the connection.

connectionName -> (string)

The name of the connection.

connectionState -> (string)

The state of the connection. The following are the possible values:

  • ordering : The initial state of a hosted connection provisioned on an interconnect. The connection stays in the ordering state until the owner of the hosted connection confirms or declines the connection order.
  • requested : The initial state of a standard connection. The connection stays in the requested state until the Letter of Authorization (LOA) is sent to the customer.
  • pending : The connection has been approved and is being initialized.
  • available : The network link is up and the connection is ready for use.
  • down : The network link is down.
  • deleting : The connection is being deleted.
  • deleted : The connection has been deleted.
  • rejected : A hosted connection in the ordering state enters the rejected state if it is deleted by the customer.

region -> (string)

The AWS Region where the connection is located.

location -> (string)

The location of the connection.

bandwidth -> (string)

The bandwidth of the connection.

vlan -> (integer)

The ID of the VLAN.

partnerName -> (string)

The name of the AWS Direct Connect service provider associated with the connection.

loaIssueTime -> (timestamp)

The time of the most recent call to DescribeLoa for this connection.

lagId -> (string)

The ID of the LAG.

awsDevice -> (string)

The Direct Connect endpoint on which the physical connection terminates.

jumboFrameCapable -> (boolean)

Indicates whether jumbo frames (9001 MTU) are supported.

awsDeviceV2 -> (string)

The Direct Connect endpoint on which the physical connection terminates.

hasLogicalRedundancy -> (string)

Indicates whether the connection supports a secondary BGP peer in the same address family (IPv4/IPv6).
