create-snapshot-from-volume-recovery-point

Description

Initiates a snapshot of a gateway from a volume recovery point. This operation is only supported in the cached volume gateway type.

A volume recovery point is a point in time at which all data of the volume is consistent and from which you can create a snapshot. To get a list of volume recovery point for cached volume gateway, use ListVolumeRecoveryPoints .

In the CreateSnapshotFromVolumeRecoveryPoint request, you identify the volume by providing its Amazon Resource Name (ARN). You must also provide a description for the snapshot. When the gateway takes a snapshot of the specified volume, the snapshot and its description appear in the AWS Storage Gateway console. In response, the gateway returns you a snapshot ID. You can use this snapshot ID to check the snapshot progress or later use it when you want to create a volume from a snapshot.

Note

To list or delete a snapshot, you must use the Amazon EC2 API. For more information, in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud API Reference .

Synopsis

  create-snapshot-from-volume-recovery-point
--volume-arn <value>
--snapshot-description <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--volume-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the iSCSI volume target. Use the DescribeStorediSCSIVolumes operation to return to retrieve the TargetARN for specified VolumeARN.

--snapshot-description (string)

Textual description of the snapshot that appears in the Amazon EC2 console, Elastic Block Store snapshots panel in the Description field, and in the AWS Storage Gateway snapshot Details pane, Description field

--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

SnapshotId -> (string)
