[ aws . storagegateway ]

create-smb-file-share

Description

Creates a Server Message Block (SMB) file share on an existing file gateway. In Storage Gateway, a file share is a file system mount point backed by Amazon S3 cloud storage. Storage Gateway exposes file shares using an SMB interface. This operation is only supported for file gateways.

Warning

File gateways require AWS Security Token Service (AWS STS) to be activated to enable you to create a file share. Make sure that AWS STS is activated in the AWS Region you are creating your file gateway in. If AWS STS is not activated in this AWS Region, activate it. For information about how to activate AWS STS, see Activating and deactivating AWS STS in an AWS Region in the AWS Identity and Access Management User Guide .

File gateways don't support creating hard or symbolic links on a file share.

See 'aws help' for descriptions of global parameters.

Options

--client-token (string)

A unique string value that you supply that is used by file gateway to ensure idempotent file share creation.

--gateway-arn (string)

The ARN of the file gateway on which you want to create a file share.

--kms-encrypted | --no-kms-encrypted (boolean)

Set to true to use Amazon S3 server-side encryption with your own AWS KMS key, or false to use a key managed by Amazon S3. Optional.

Valid Values: true | false

--kms-key (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of a symmetric customer master key (CMK) used for Amazon S3 server-side encryption. Storage Gateway does not support asymmetric CMKs. This value can only be set when KMSEncrypted is true . Optional.

--role (string)

The ARN of the AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) role that a file gateway assumes when it accesses the underlying storage.

--location-arn (string)

The ARN of the backend storage used for storing file data. A prefix name can be added to the S3 bucket name. It must end with a "/".

--default-storage-class (string)

The default storage class for objects put into an Amazon S3 bucket by the file gateway. The default value is S3_INTELLIGENT_TIERING . Optional.

Valid Values: S3_STANDARD | S3_INTELLIGENT_TIERING | S3_STANDARD_IA | S3_ONEZONE_IA

--object-acl (string)

A value that sets the access control list (ACL) permission for objects in the S3 bucket that a file gateway puts objects into. The default value is private .

Possible values:

  • private
  • public-read
  • public-read-write
  • authenticated-read
  • bucket-owner-read
  • bucket-owner-full-control
  • aws-exec-read

--read-only | --no-read-only (boolean)

A value that sets the write status of a file share. Set this value to true to set the write status to read-only, otherwise set to false .

Valid Values: true | false

--guess-mime-type-enabled | --no-guess-mime-type-enabled (boolean)

A value that enables guessing of the MIME type for uploaded objects based on file extensions. Set this value to true to enable MIME type guessing, otherwise set to false . The default value is true .

Valid Values: true | false

--requester-pays | --no-requester-pays (boolean)

A value that sets who pays the cost of the request and the cost associated with data download from the S3 bucket. If this value is set to true , the requester pays the costs; otherwise, the S3 bucket owner pays. However, the S3 bucket owner always pays the cost of storing data.

Note

RequesterPays is a configuration for the S3 bucket that backs the file share, so make sure that the configuration on the file share is the same as the S3 bucket configuration.

Valid Values: true | false

--smbacl-enabled | --no-smbacl-enabled (boolean)

Set this value to true to enable access control list (ACL) on the SMB file share. Set it to false to map file and directory permissions to the POSIX permissions.

For more information, see Using Microsoft Windows ACLs to control access to an SMB file share in the AWS Storage Gateway User Guide .

Valid Values: true | false

--access-based-enumeration | --no-access-based-enumeration (boolean)

The files and folders on this share will only be visible to users with read access.

--admin-user-list (list)

A list of users or groups in the Active Directory that will be granted administrator privileges on the file share. These users can do all file operations as the super-user. Acceptable formats include: DOMAIN\User1 , user1 , @group1 , and @DOMAIN\group1 .

Warning

Use this option very carefully, because any user in this list can do anything they like on the file share, regardless of file permissions.

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--valid-user-list (list)

A list of users or groups in the Active Directory that are allowed to access the file ` share. A group must be prefixed with the @ character. Acceptable formats include: DOMAIN\User1 , user1 , @group1 , and @DOMAIN\group1 . Can only be set if Authentication is set to ActiveDirectory .

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--invalid-user-list (list)

A list of users or groups in the Active Directory that are not allowed to access the file share. A group must be prefixed with the @ character. Acceptable formats include: DOMAIN\User1 , user1 , @group1 , and @DOMAIN\group1 . Can only be set if Authentication is set to ActiveDirectory .

(string)

Syntax:

"string" "string" ...

--audit-destination-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the storage used for audit logs.

--authentication (string)

The authentication method that users use to access the file share. The default is ActiveDirectory .

Valid Values: ActiveDirectory | GuestAccess

--case-sensitivity (string)

The case of an object name in an Amazon S3 bucket. For ClientSpecified , the client determines the case sensitivity. For CaseSensitive , the gateway determines the case sensitivity. The default value is ClientSpecified .

Possible values:

  • ClientSpecified
  • CaseSensitive

--tags (list)

A list of up to 50 tags that can be assigned to the NFS file share. Each tag is a key-value pair.

(structure)

A key-value pair that helps you manage, filter, and search for your resource. Allowed characters: letters, white space, and numbers, representable in UTF-8, and the following characters: + - = . _ : /.

Key -> (string)

Tag key. The key can't start with aws:.

Value -> (string)

Shorthand Syntax:

Key=string,Value=string ...

JSON Syntax:

[
  {
    "Key": "string",
    "Value": "string"
  }
  ...
]

--file-share-name (string)

The name of the file share. Optional.

Note

FileShareName must be set if an S3 prefix name is set in LocationARN .

--cache-attributes (structure)

Specifies refresh cache information for the file share.

CacheStaleTimeoutInSeconds -> (integer)

Refreshes a file share's cache by using Time To Live (TTL). TTL is the length of time since the last refresh after which access to the directory would cause the file gateway to first refresh that directory's contents from the Amazon S3 bucket or Amazon FSx file system. The TTL duration is in seconds.

Valid Values: 300 to 2,592,000 seconds (5 minutes to 30 days)

Shorthand Syntax:

CacheStaleTimeoutInSeconds=integer

JSON Syntax:

{
  "CacheStaleTimeoutInSeconds": integer
}

--notification-policy (string)

The notification policy of the file share. SettlingTimeInSeconds controls the number of seconds to wait after the last point in time a client wrote to a file before generating an ObjectUploaded notification. Because clients can make many small writes to files, it's best to set this parameter for as long as possible to avoid generating multiple notifications for the same file in a small time period.

Note

SettlingTimeInSeconds has no effect on the timing of the object uploading to Amazon S3, only the timing of the notification.

The following example sets NotificationPolicy on with SettlingTimeInSeconds set to 60.

{\"Upload\": {\"SettlingTimeInSeconds\": 60}}

The following example sets NotificationPolicy off.

{}

--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

FileShareARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the newly created file share.
