Synopsis

Calls the AWS DataSync CreateLocationNfs API operation.

Syntax

New-DSYNLocationNfs
-OnPremConfig_AgentArn <String[]>
-ServerHostname <String>
-Subdirectory <String>
-Tag <TagListEntry[]>
-MountOptions_Version <NfsVersion>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Creates an endpoint for a Network File System (NFS) file system.

Parameters

-Force <SwitchParameter>
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?False
-MountOptions_Version <NfsVersion>
The specific NFS version that you want DataSync to use to mount your NFS share. If you don't specify a version, DataSync defaults to AUTOMATIC. That is, DataSync automatically selects a version based on negotiation with the NFS server.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-OnPremConfig_AgentArn <String[]>
ARNs)of the agents to use for an NFS location.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
AliasesOnPremConfig_AgentArns
-ServerHostname <String>
The name of the NFS server. This value is the IP address or Domain Name Service (DNS) name of the NFS server. An agent that is installed on-premises uses this host name to mount the NFS server in a network. This name must either be DNS-compliant or must be an IP version 4 (IPv4) address.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-Subdirectory <String>
The subdirectory in the NFS file system that is used to read data from the NFS source location or write data to the NFS destination. The NFS path should be a path that's exported by the NFS server, or a subdirectory of that path. The path should be such that it can be mounted by other NFS clients in your network. To see all the paths exported by your NFS server. run "showmount -e nfs-server-name" from an NFS client that has access to your server. You can specify any directory that appears in the results, and any subdirectory of that directory. Ensure that the NFS export is accessible without Kerberos authentication. To transfer all the data in the folder you specified, DataSync needs to have permissions to read all the data. To ensure this, either configure the NFS export with no_root_squash, or ensure that the permissions for all of the files that you want DataSync allow read access for all users. Doing either enables the agent to read the files. For the agent to access directories, you must additionally enable all execute access.For information about NFS export configuration, see 18.7. The /etc/exports Configuration File in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux documentation.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
The key-value pair that represents the tag that you want to add to the location. The value can be an empty string. We recommend using tags to name your resources.
Required?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

This cmdlet does not accept pipeline input.

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a System.String object. The service call response (type Amazon.DataSync.Model.CreateLocationNfsResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
