Description

Modifies the target gateway of an AWS Site-to-Site VPN connection. The following migration options are available:
  • An existing virtual private gateway to a new virtual private gateway
  • An existing virtual private gateway to a transit gateway
  • An existing transit gateway to a new transit gateway
  • An existing transit gateway to a virtual private gateway
Before you perform the migration to the new gateway, you must configure the new gateway. Use CreateVpnGateway to create a virtual private gateway, or CreateTransitGateway to create a transit gateway. This step is required when you migrate from a virtual private gateway with static routes to a transit gateway. You must delete the static routes before you migrate to the new gateway. Keep a copy of the static route before you delete it. You will need to add back these routes to the transit gateway after the VPN connection migration is complete. After you migrate to the new gateway, you might need to modify your VPC route table. Use CreateRoute and DeleteRoute to make the changes described in VPN Gateway Target Modification Required VPC Route Table Updates in the AWS Site-to-Site VPN User Guide. When the new gateway is a transit gateway, modify the transit gateway route table to allow traffic between the VPC and the AWS Site-to-Site VPN connection. Use CreateTransitGatewayRoute to add the routes. If you deleted VPN static routes, you must add the static routes to the transit gateway route table. After you perform this operation, the AWS VPN endpoint's IP addresses on the AWS side and the tunnel options remain intact. Your s2slong; connection will be temporarily unavailable for approximately 10 minutes while we provision the new endpoints

Parameters

-CustomerGatewayId <String>
The ID of the customer gateway at your end of the VPN connection.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (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 VpnConnectionId parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^VpnConnectionId' 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 'VpnConnection'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.EC2.Model.ModifyVpnConnectionResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.EC2.Model.ModifyVpnConnectionResponse 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)
-TransitGatewayId <String>
The ID of the transit gateway.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-VpnConnectionId <String>
The ID of the VPN connection.
Required?True
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-VpnGatewayId <String>
The ID of the virtual private gateway at the AWS side of the VPN connection.
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.

This cmdlet returns an Amazon.EC2.Model.VpnConnection object. The service call response (type Amazon.EC2.Model.ModifyVpnConnectionResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
