CreateOpenZFSOriginSnapshotConfiguration - Amazon FSx


The snapshot configuration to use when creating an Amazon FSx for OpenZFS volume from a snapshot.



Specifies the strategy used when copying data from the snapshot to the new volume.

  • CLONE - The new volume references the data in the origin snapshot. Cloning a snapshot is faster than copying data from the snapshot to a new volume and doesn't consume disk throughput. However, the origin snapshot can't be deleted if there is a volume using its copied data.

  • FULL_COPY - Copies all data from the snapshot to the new volume.

    Specify this option to create the volume from a snapshot on another FSx for OpenZFS file system.


The INCREMENTAL_COPY option is only for updating an existing volume by using a snapshot from another FSx for OpenZFS file system. For more information, see CopySnapshotAndUpdateVolume.
