[ aws . mgn ]



Causes the data replication initiation sequence to begin immediately upon next Handshake for specified SourceServer IDs, regardless of when the previous initiation started. This command will not work if the SourceServer is not stalled or is in a DISCONNECTED or STOPPED state.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.


--source-server-id <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]


--source-server-id (string)

Retry data replication for Source Server ID.

--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.
