retrieve-tape-recovery-point

Description

Retrieves the recovery point for the specified virtual tape. This operation is only supported in the tape gateway type.

A recovery point is a point in time view of a virtual tape at which all the data on the tape is consistent. If your gateway crashes, virtual tapes that have recovery points can be recovered to a new gateway.

Note

The virtual tape can be retrieved to only one gateway. The retrieved tape is read-only. The virtual tape can be retrieved to only a tape gateway. There is no charge for retrieving recovery points.

Synopsis

  retrieve-tape-recovery-point
--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 for which you want to retrieve the recovery point.

--gateway-arn (string)

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

--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 virtual tape for which the recovery point was retrieved.
