The following are the database engines and links to information about the major and minor versions. The list only includes DB engines that require an on-premises customer provided license.

Microsoft SQL Server

See Microsoft SQL Server Versions on Amazon RDS in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

--engine-installation-media-path (string)

The path to the installation medium for the specified DB engine.

Example: SQLServerISO/en_sql_server_2016_enterprise_x64_dvd_8701793.iso

--os-installation-media-path (string)

The path to the installation medium for the operating system associated with the specified DB engine.

Example: WindowsISO/en_windows_server_2016_x64_dvd_9327751.iso

--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.
