Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) ModifyVolume API operation.

Syntax

Edit-EC2Volume
-VolumeId <String>
-Iops <Int32>
-MultiAttachEnabled <Boolean>
-Size <Int32>
-Throughput <Int32>
-VolumeType <VolumeType>
-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

You can modify several parameters of an existing EBS volume, including volume size, volume type, and IOPS capacity. If your EBS volume is attached to a current-generation EC2 instance type, you might be able to apply these changes without stopping the instance or detaching the volume from it. For more information about modifying EBS volumes, see Amazon EBS Elastic Volumes (Linux instances) or Amazon EBS Elastic Volumes (Windows instances). When you complete a resize operation on your volume, you need to extend the volume's file-system size to take advantage of the new storage capacity. For more information, see Extend a Linux file system or Extend a Windows file system. You can use CloudWatch Events to check the status of a modification to an EBS volume. For information about CloudWatch Events, see the Amazon CloudWatch Events User Guide. You can also track the status of a modification using DescribeVolumesModifications. For information about tracking status changes using either method, see Monitor the progress of volume modifications. With previous-generation instance types, resizing an EBS volume might require detaching and reattaching the volume or stopping and restarting the instance. If you reach the maximum volume modification rate per volume limit, you must wait at least six hours before applying further modifications to the affected EBS volume.

Parameters

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)
-Iops <Int32>
The target IOPS rate of the volume. This parameter is valid only for gp3, io1, and io2 volumes.The following are the supported values for each volume type:
  • gp3: 3,000-16,000 IOPS
  • io1: 100-64,000 IOPS
  • io2: 100-64,000 IOPS
Default: The existing value is retained if you keep the same volume type. If you change the volume type to io1, io2, or gp3, the default is 3,000.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-MultiAttachEnabled <Boolean>
Specifies whether to enable Amazon EBS Multi-Attach. If you enable Multi-Attach, you can attach the volume to up to 16 Nitro-based instances in the same Availability Zone. This parameter is supported with io1 and io2 volumes only. For more information, see Amazon EBS Multi-Attach in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
Changes the cmdlet behavior to return the value passed to the VolumeId parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^VolumeId' instead. This parameter will be removed in a future version.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Select <String>
Use the -Select parameter to control the cmdlet output. The default value is 'VolumeModification'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.EC2.Model.ModifyVolumeResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.EC2.Model.ModifyVolumeResponse 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)
-Size <Int32>
The target size of the volume, in GiB. The target volume size must be greater than or equal to the existing size of the volume.The following are the supported volumes sizes for each volume type:
  • gp2 and gp3: 1-16,384
  • io1 and io2: 4-16,384
  • st1 and sc1: 125-16,384
  • standard: 1-1,024
Default: The existing size is retained.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Throughput <Int32>
The target throughput of the volume, in MiB/s. This parameter is valid only for gp3 volumes. The maximum value is 1,000.Default: The existing value is retained if the source and target volume type is gp3. Otherwise, the default value is 125.Valid Range: Minimum value of 125. Maximum value of 1000.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-VolumeId <String>
The ID of the volume.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-VolumeType <VolumeType>
The target EBS volume type of the volume. For more information, see Amazon EBS volume types in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud User Guide.Default: The existing type is retained.
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.

-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.
