{ "ActiveDirectoryConfiguration": { "NetBiosName": "string", "SelfManagedActiveDirectoryConfiguration": { "DnsIps": [ "string" ], "DomainName": "string", "FileSystemAdministratorsGroup": "string", "OrganizationalUnitDistinguishedName": "string", "Password": "string", "UserName": "string" } }, "ClientRequestToken": "string", "FileSystemId": "string", "Name": "string", "RootVolumeSecurityStyle": "string", "SvmAdminPassword": "string", "Tags": [ { "Key": "string", "Value": "string" } ] }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

ActiveDirectoryConfiguration

Describes the self-managed Microsoft Active Directory to which you want to join the SVM. Joining an Active Directory provides user authentication and access control for SMB clients, including Microsoft Windows and macOS client accessing the file system.

Type: CreateSvmActiveDirectoryConfiguration object

Required: No

ClientRequestToken

(Optional) An idempotency token for resource creation, in a string of up to 64 ASCII characters. This token is automatically filled on your behalf when you use the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) or an AWS SDK.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 63.

Pattern: [A-za-z0-9_.-]{0,63}$

Required: No

FileSystemId

The globally unique ID of the file system, assigned by Amazon FSx.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 11. Maximum length of 21.

Pattern: ^(fs-[0-9a-f]{8,})$

Required: Yes

Name

The name of the SVM.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 1. Maximum length of 47.

Pattern: ^[^\u0000\u0085\u2028\u2029\r\n]{1,47}$

Required: Yes

RootVolumeSecurityStyle

The security style of the root volume of the SVM. Specify one of the following values:

  • UNIX if the file system is managed by a UNIX administrator, the majority of users are NFS clients, and an application accessing the data uses a UNIX user as the service account.

  • NTFS if the file system is managed by a Windows administrator, the majority of users are SMB clients, and an application accessing the data uses a Windows user as the service account.

  • MIXED if the file system is managed by both UNIX and Windows administrators and users consist of both NFS and SMB clients.

Type: String

Valid Values: UNIX | NTFS | MIXED

Required: No

SvmAdminPassword

The password to use when managing the SVM using the NetApp ONTAP CLI or REST API. If you do not specify a password, you can still use the file system's fsxadmin user to manage the SVM.

Type: String

Length Constraints: Minimum length of 8. Maximum length of 50.

Pattern: ^[^\u0000\u0085\u2028\u2029\r\n]{8,50}$

Required: No

Tags

A list of Tag values, with a maximum of 50 elements.

Type: Array of Tag objects

Array Members: Minimum number of 1 item. Maximum number of 50 items.

Required: No
