[ aws . storagegateway ]

attach-volume

Description

Connects a volume to an iSCSI connection and then attaches the volume to the specified gateway. Detaching and attaching a volume enables you to recover your data from one gateway to a different gateway without creating a snapshot. It also makes it easier to move your volumes from an on-premises gateway to a gateway hosted on an Amazon EC2 instance.

See also: AWS API Documentation

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Synopsis

  attach-volume
--gateway-arn <value>
[--target-name <value>]
--volume-arn <value>
--network-interface-id <value>
[--disk-id <value>]
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--gateway-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway that you want to attach the volume to.

--target-name (string)

The name of the iSCSI target used by an initiator to connect to a volume and used as a suffix for the target ARN. For example, specifying TargetName as myvolume results in the target ARN of arn:aws:storagegateway:us-east-2:111122223333:gateway/sgw-12A3456B/target/iqn.1997-05.com.amazon:myvolume . The target name must be unique across all volumes on a gateway.

If you don't specify a value, Storage Gateway uses the value that was previously used for this volume as the new target name.

--volume-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the volume to attach to the specified gateway.

--network-interface-id (string)

The network interface of the gateway on which to expose the iSCSI target. Only IPv4 addresses are accepted. Use DescribeGatewayInformation to get a list of the network interfaces available on a gateway.

Valid Values: A valid IP address.

--disk-id (string)

The unique device ID or other distinguishing data that identifies the local disk used to create the volume. This value is only required when you are attaching a stored volume.

--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

VolumeARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the volume that was attached to the gateway.

TargetARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the volume target, which includes the iSCSI name for the initiator that was used to connect to the target.
