Amazon FSx for Lustre Maintenance Windows

Amazon FSx for Lustre performs routine software patching for the Lustre software it manages. The maintenance window is your opportunity to control what day and time of the week this software patching occurs.

Patching occurs infrequently, typically once every several weeks. Patching should require only a fraction of your 30-minute maintenance window. During these few minutes of time, your file system will be temporarily unavailable.

You choose the maintenance window during file system creation. If you have no time preference, then a 30-minute default window is assigned.

You can use the Amazon FSx Management Console, AWS CLI or one of the AWS SDKs to change the maintenance window for your file systems.

To change the maintenance window using the console

  1. Open the Amazon FSx console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/fsx/.

  2. Choose File systems in the left hand navigation column.

  3. Choose the file system that you want to changes the maintenance window for. The file system details page displays.

  4. Choose the Maintenance tab. The maintenance window Settings panel displays.

  5. Choose Edit and enter the new day and time that you want the maintenance window to start.

  6. Choose Save to save your changes. The new maintenance start time is displayed in the Settings panel.

You can use the AWS CLI or one of the AWS SDKs to change the maintenance window for your file systems using the UpdateFileSystem operation.

Run the following command, replacing the file system ID with the ID for your file system, and the date and time with when you want to begin the window.
