[ aws . storagegateway ]

retrieve-tape-archive

Description

Retrieves an archived virtual tape from the virtual tape shelf (VTS) to a tape gateway. Virtual tapes archived in the VTS are not associated with any gateway. However after a tape is retrieved, it is associated with a gateway, even though it is also listed in the VTS, that is, archive. This operation is only supported in the tape gateway type.

Once a tape is successfully retrieved to a gateway, it cannot be retrieved again to another gateway. You must archive the tape again before you can retrieve it to another gateway. This operation is only supported in the tape gateway type.

Synopsis

  retrieve-tape-archive
--tape-arn <value>
--gateway-arn <value>
[--cli-input-json <value>]
[--generate-cli-skeleton <value>]

Options

--tape-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the virtual tape you want to retrieve from the virtual tape shelf (VTS).

--gateway-arn (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway you want to retrieve the virtual tape to. Use the ListGateways operation to return a list of gateways for your account and region.

You retrieve archived virtual tapes to only one gateway and the gateway must be a tape gateway.

--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

TapeARN -> (string)

The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the retrieved virtual tape.
