restore-db-instance-from-db-snapshot

Description

Creates a new DB instance from a DB snapshot. The target database is created from the source database restore point with most of the source's original configuration, including the default security group and DB parameter group. By default, the new DB instance is created as a Single-AZ deployment, except when the instance is a SQL Server instance that has an option group associated with mirroring. In this case, the instance becomes a Multi-AZ deployment, not a Single-AZ deployment.

If you want to replace your original DB instance with the new, restored DB instance, then rename your original DB instance before you call the RestoreDBInstanceFromDBSnapshot action. RDS doesn't allow two DB instances with the same name. After you have renamed your original DB instance with a different identifier, then you can pass the original name of the DB instance as the DBInstanceIdentifier in the call to the RestoreDBInstanceFromDBSnapshot action. The result is that you replace the original DB instance with the DB instance created from the snapshot.

If you are restoring from a shared manual DB snapshot, the DBSnapshotIdentifier must be the ARN of the shared DB snapshot.

Note

This command doesn't apply to Aurora MySQL and Aurora PostgreSQL. For Aurora, use RestoreDBClusterFromSnapshot .

Constraints:

  • Must contain from 1 to 63 numbers, letters, or hyphens
  • First character must be a letter
  • Can't end with a hyphen or contain two consecutive hyphens

Example: my-snapshot-id

--db-snapshot-identifier (string)

The identifier for the DB snapshot to restore from.

Constraints:

  • Must match the identifier of an existing DBSnapshot.
  • If you are restoring from a shared manual DB snapshot, the DBSnapshotIdentifier must be the ARN of the shared DB snapshot.

--db-instance-class (string)

The compute and memory capacity of the Amazon RDS DB instance, for example, db.m4.large . Not all DB instance classes are available in all Amazon Web Services Regions, or for all database engines. For the full list of DB instance classes, and availability for your engine, see DB Instance Class in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

Default: The same DBInstanceClass as the original DB instance.

--port (integer)

The port number on which the database accepts connections.

Default: The same port as the original DB instance

Constraints: Value must be 1150-65535

--availability-zone (string)

The Availability Zone (AZ) where the DB instance will be created.

Default: A random, system-chosen Availability Zone.

Constraint: You can't specify the AvailabilityZone parameter if the DB instance is a Multi-AZ deployment.

Example: us-east-1a

--db-subnet-group-name (string)

The DB subnet group name to use for the new instance.

Constraints: If supplied, must match the name of an existing DBSubnetGroup.

Example: mySubnetgroup

--multi-az | --no-multi-az (boolean)

A value that indicates whether the DB instance is a Multi-AZ deployment.

This setting doesn't apply to RDS Custom.

Constraint: You can't specify the AvailabilityZone parameter if the DB instance is a Multi-AZ deployment.

--publicly-accessible | --no-publicly-accessible (boolean)

A value that indicates whether the DB instance is publicly accessible.

When the DB instance is publicly accessible, its DNS endpoint resolves to the private IP address from within the DB instance's VPC, and to the public IP address from outside of the DB instance's VPC. Access to the DB instance is ultimately controlled by the security group it uses, and that public access is not permitted if the security group assigned to the DB instance doesn't permit it.

When the DB instance isn't publicly accessible, it is an internal DB instance with a DNS name that resolves to a private IP address.

For more information, see CreateDBInstance .

--auto-minor-version-upgrade | --no-auto-minor-version-upgrade (boolean)

A value that indicates whether minor version upgrades are applied automatically to the DB instance during the maintenance window.

If you restore an RDS Custom DB instance, you must disable this parameter.

Specifies the amount of provisioned IOPS for the DB instance, expressed in I/O operations per second. If this parameter isn't specified, the IOPS value is taken from the backup. If this parameter is set to 0, the new instance is converted to a non-PIOPS instance. The conversion takes additional time, though your DB instance is available for connections before the conversion starts.

The provisioned IOPS value must follow the requirements for your database engine. For more information, see Amazon RDS Provisioned IOPS Storage to Improve Performance in the Amazon RDS User Guide.

Constraints: Must be an integer greater than 1000.

--option-group-name (string)

The name of the option group to be used for the restored DB instance.

If you call DescribeDBInstances , ProcessorFeature returns non-null values only if the following conditions are met:

  • You are accessing an Oracle DB instance.

--enable-customer-owned-ip | --no-enable-customer-owned-ip (boolean)

A value that indicates whether to enable a customer-owned IP address (CoIP) for an RDS on Outposts DB instance.

A CoIP provides local or external connectivity to resources in your Outpost subnets through your on-premises network. For some use cases, a CoIP can provide lower latency for connections to the DB instance from outside of its virtual private cloud (VPC) on your local network.

This setting doesn't apply to RDS Custom.

For more information about RDS on Outposts, see Working with Amazon RDS on Amazon Web Services Outposts in the Amazon RDS User Guide .

For more information about CoIPs, see Customer-owned IP addresses in the Amazon Web Services Outposts User Guide .

For the list of permissions required for the IAM role, see Configure IAM and your VPC in the Amazon Relational Database Service User Guide .

This setting is required for RDS Custom.

--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.

  • DescribeDBSnapshots
  • DescribeValidDBInstanceModifications

If you call DescribeDBInstances , ProcessorFeature returns non-null values only if the following conditions are met:

  • You are accessing an Oracle DB instance.
