Synopsis

Calls the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud DescribeHosts API operation.

Syntax

Get-EC2Host
-HostId <String[]>
-Filter <Filter[]>
-MaxResult <Int32>
-NextToken <String>

Description

Describes one or more of your Dedicated Hosts. The results describe only the Dedicated Hosts in the region you're currently using. All listed instances consume capacity on your Dedicated Host. Dedicated Hosts that have recently been released will be listed with the state released.

This operation automatically pages all available results to the pipeline - parameters related to iteration are only needed if you want to manually control the paginated output.

Note: For scripts written against earlier versions of this module this cmdlet can also be invoked with the alias, Get-EC2Hosts.

Parameters

-Filter <Filter[]>
One or more filters.
  • instance-type - The instance type size that the Dedicated Host is configured to support.
  • auto-placement - Whether auto-placement is enabled or disabled (on | off).
  • host-reservation-id - The ID of the reservation assigned to this host.
  • client-token - The idempotency token you provided when you launched the instance
  • state- The allocation state of the Dedicated Host (available | under-assessment | permanent-failure | released | released-permanent-failure).
  • availability-zone - The Availability Zone of the host.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-HostId <String[]>
The IDs of the Dedicated Hosts. The IDs are used for targeted instance launches.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, )
-MaxResult <Int32>
The maximum number of results to return for the request in a single page. The remaining results can be seen by sending another request with the returned nextToken value. This value can be between 5 and 500; if maxResults is given a larger value than 500, you will receive an error. You cannot specify this parameter and the host IDs parameter in the same request.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-NextToken <String>
The token to retrieve the next page of results.
Note: This parameter is only used if you are manually controlling output pagination of the service API call.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False

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? False
-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? False
-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. Note that the encrypted credential file is not supported on all platforms. It will be skipped when searching for profiles on Windows Nano Server, Mac, and Linux platforms.

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? False
-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? False
-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? 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.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-SessionToken <String>
The session token if the access and secret keys are temporary session-based credentials.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-Region <String>
The system name of the AWS region in which the operation should be invoked. For example, us-east-1, eu-west-1 etc.
Required? False
Position? Named
Accept pipeline input? False
-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? False

Inputs

You can pipe a String[] object to this cmdlet for the HostId parameter.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of Host objects. The service call response (type Amazon.EC2.Model.DescribeHostsResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack. Additionally, the following properties are added as Note properties to the service response type instance for the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack: NextToken (type System.String)
