Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Relational Database Service PromoteReadReplica API operation.

Syntax

Convert-RDSReadReplicaToStandalone
-DBInstanceIdentifier <String>
-BackupRetentionPeriod <Int32>
-PreferredBackupWindow <String>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Promotes a Read Replica DB instance to a standalone DB instance.
  • Backup duration is a function of the amount of changes to the database since the previous backup. If you plan to promote a Read Replica to a standalone instance, we recommend that you enable backups and complete at least one backup prior to promotion. In addition, a Read Replica cannot be promoted to a standalone instance when it is in the backing-up status. If you have enabled backups on your Read Replica, configure the automated backup window so that daily backups do not interfere with Read Replica promotion.
  • This command doesn't apply to Aurora MySQL and Aurora PostgreSQL.

Parameters

-BackupRetentionPeriod <Int32>
The number of days for which automated backups are retained. Setting this parameter to a positive number enables backups. Setting this parameter to 0 disables automated backups.Default: 1Constraints:
  • Must be a value from 0 to 35.
  • Can't be set to 0 if the DB instance is a source to Read Replicas.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-DBInstanceIdentifier <String>
The DB instance identifier. This value is stored as a lowercase string.Constraints:
  • Must match the identifier of an existing Read Replica DB instance.
Example: mydbinstance
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
This parameter overrides confirmation prompts to force the cmdlet to continue its operation. This parameter should always be used with caution.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the DBInstanceIdentifier parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^DBInstanceIdentifier' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PreferredBackupWindow <String>
The daily time range during which automated backups are created if automated backups are enabled, using the BackupRetentionPeriod parameter. The default is a 30-minute window selected at random from an 8-hour block of time for each AWS Region. To see the time blocks available, see Adjusting the Preferred Maintenance Window in the Amazon RDS User Guide.Constraints:
  • Must be in the format hh24:mi-hh24:mi.
  • Must be in Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
  • Must not conflict with the preferred maintenance window.
  • Must be at least 30 minutes.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'DBInstance'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.RDS.Model.PromoteReadReplicaResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.RDS.Model.PromoteReadReplicaResponse will result in that property being returned. Specifying -Select '^ParameterName' will result in the cmdlet returning the selected cmdlet parameter value.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)

Common Credential and Region Parameters

-AccessKey <String>
The AWS access key for the user account. This can be a temporary access key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAK
-Credential <AWSCredentials>
An AWSCredentials object instance containing access and secret key information, and optionally a token for session-based credentials.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-EndpointUrl <String>
The endpoint to make the call against.Note: This parameter is primarily for internal AWS use and is not required/should not be specified for normal usage. The cmdlets normally determine which endpoint to call based on the region specified to the -Region parameter or set as default in the shell (via Set-DefaultAWSRegion). Only specify this parameter if you must direct the call to a specific custom endpoint.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-NetworkCredential <PSCredential>
Used with SAML-based authentication when ProfileName references a SAML role profile. Contains the network credentials to be supplied during authentication with the configured identity provider's endpoint. This parameter is not required if the user's default network identity can or should be used during authentication.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ProfileLocation <String>
Used to specify the name and location of the ini-format credential file (shared with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs)If this optional parameter is omitted this cmdlet will search the encrypted credential file used by the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio first. If the profile is not found then the cmdlet will search in the ini-format credential file at the default location: (user's home directory)\.aws\credentials.If this parameter is specified then this cmdlet will only search the ini-format credential file at the location given.As the current folder can vary in a shell or during script execution it is advised that you use specify a fully qualified path instead of a relative path.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesAWSProfilesLocation, ProfilesLocation
-ProfileName <String>
The user-defined name of an AWS credentials or SAML-based role profile containing credential information. The profile is expected to be found in the secure credential file shared with the AWS SDK for .NET and AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio. You can also specify the name of a profile stored in the .ini-format credential file used with the AWS CLI and other AWS SDKs.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesStoredCredentials, AWSProfileName
-Region <Object>
The system name of an AWS region or an AWSRegion instance. This governs the endpoint that will be used when calling service operations. Note that the AWS resources referenced in a call are usually region-specific.
Required?False

-SecretKey <String>
The AWS secret key for the user account. This can be a temporary secret key if the corresponding session token is supplied to the -SessionToken parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns an Amazon.RDS.Model.DBInstance object. The service call response (type Amazon.RDS.Model.PromoteReadReplicaResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
