[ aws . fsx ]

associate-file-system-aliases

Description

Use this action to associate one or more Domain Name Server (DNS) aliases with an existing Amazon FSx for Windows File Server file system. A file system can have a maximum of 50 DNS aliases associated with it at any one time. If you try to associate a DNS alias that is already associated with the file system, FSx takes no action on that alias in the request. For more information, see Working with DNS Aliases and Walkthrough 5: Using DNS aliases to access your file system , including additional steps you must take to be able to access your file system using a DNS alias.

The system response shows the DNS aliases that Amazon FSx is attempting to associate with the file system. Use the API operation to monitor the status of the aliases Amazon FSx is associating with the file system.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  associate-file-system-aliases
[--client-request-token <value>]
--file-system-id <value>
--aliases <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--client-request-token (string)

(Optional) An idempotency token for resource creation, in a string of up to 64 ASCII characters. This token is automatically filled on your behalf when you use the Command Line Interface (CLI) or an Amazon Web Services SDK.

--file-system-id (string)

Specifies the file system with which you want to associate one or more DNS aliases.

--aliases (list)

An array of one or more DNS alias names to associate with the file system. The alias name has to comply with the following formatting requirements:

  • Formatted as a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN), * hostname.domain * , for example, accounting.corp.example.com .
  • Can contain alphanumeric characters and the hyphen (-).
  • Cannot start or end with a hyphen.
  • Can start with a numeric.

For DNS alias names, Amazon FSx stores alphabetic characters as lowercase letters (a-z), regardless of how you specify them: as uppercase letters, lowercase letters, or the corresponding letters in escape codes.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "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

Aliases -> (list)

An array of the DNS aliases that Amazon FSx is associating with the file system.

(structure)

A DNS alias that is associated with the file system. You can use a DNS alias to access a file system using user-defined DNS names, in addition to the default DNS name that Amazon FSx assigns to the file system. For more information, see DNS aliases in the FSx for Windows File Server User Guide .

Name -> (string)

The name of the DNS alias. The alias name has to meet the following requirements:

  • Formatted as a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN), hostname.domain , for example, accounting.example.com .
  • Can contain alphanumeric characters, the underscore (_), and the hyphen (-).
  • Cannot start or end with a hyphen.
  • Can start with a numeric.

For DNS names, Amazon FSx stores alphabetic characters as lowercase letters (a-z), regardless of how you specify them: as uppercase letters, lowercase letters, or the corresponding letters in escape codes.

Lifecycle -> (string)

Describes the state of the DNS alias.

  • AVAILABLE - The DNS alias is associated with an Amazon FSx file system.
  • CREATING - Amazon FSx is creating the DNS alias and associating it with the file system.
  • CREATE_FAILED - Amazon FSx was unable to associate the DNS alias with the file system.
  • DELETING - Amazon FSx is disassociating the DNS alias from the file system and deleting it.
  • DELETE_FAILED - Amazon FSx was unable to disassociate the DNS alias from the file system.
