Synopsis

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

Syntax

-InstanceSpecification_InstanceId <String>
-CopyTagsFromSource <CopyTagsFromSource>
-Description <String>
-InstanceSpecification_ExcludeBootVolume <Boolean>
-InstanceSpecification_ExcludeDataVolumeId <String[]>
-OutpostArn <String>

-Select <String>
-PassThru <SwitchParameter>
-Force <SwitchParameter>
-ClientConfig <AmazonEC2Config>

Description

Creates crash-consistent snapshots of multiple EBS volumes and stores the data in S3. Volumes are chosen by specifying an instance. Any attached volumes will produce one snapshot each that is crash-consistent across the instance. You can include all of the volumes currently attached to the instance, or you can exclude the root volume or specific data (non-root) volumes from the multi-volume snapshot set. You can create multi-volume snapshots of instances in a Region and instances on an Outpost. If you create snapshots from an instance in a Region, the snapshots must be stored in the same Region as the instance. If you create snapshots from an instance on an Outpost, the snapshots can be stored on the same Outpost as the instance, or in the Region for that Outpost.

Parameters

-ClientConfig <AmazonEC2Config>
Amazon.PowerShell.Cmdlets.EC2.AmazonEC2ClientCmdlet.ClientConfig
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-CopyTagsFromSource <CopyTagsFromSource>
Copies the tags from the specified volume to corresponding snapshot.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-Description <String>
A description propagated to every snapshot specified by the instance.
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)
-InstanceSpecification_ExcludeBootVolume <Boolean>
Excludes the root volume from being snapshotted.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
-InstanceSpecification_ExcludeDataVolumeId <String[]>
The IDs of the data (non-root) volumes to exclude from the multi-volume snapshot set. If you specify the ID of the root volume, the request fails. To exclude the root volume, use ExcludeBootVolume.You can specify up to 40 volume IDs per request.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesInstanceSpecification_ExcludeDataVolumeIds
-InstanceSpecification_InstanceId <String>
The instance to specify which volumes should be snapshotted.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-OutpostArn <String>
The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the Outpost on which to create the local snapshots.
  • To create snapshots from an instance in a Region, omit this parameter. The snapshots are created in the same Region as the instance.
  • To create snapshots from an instance on an Outpost and store the snapshots in the Region, omit this parameter. The snapshots are created in the Region for the Outpost.
  • To create snapshots from an instance on an Outpost and store the snapshots on an Outpost, specify the ARN of the destination Outpost. The snapshots must be created on the same Outpost as the instance.
For more information, see Create multi-volume local snapshots from instances on an Outpost 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 InstanceSpecification_InstanceId parameter. The -PassThru parameter is deprecated, use -Select '^InstanceSpecification_InstanceId' 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 'Snapshots'. Specifying -Select '*' will result in the cmdlet returning the whole service response (Amazon.EC2.Model.CreateSnapshotsResponse). Specifying the name of a property of type Amazon.EC2.Model.CreateSnapshotsResponse 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)
-TagSpecification <TagSpecification[]>
Tags to apply to every snapshot specified by the instance.
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
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesRegionToCall
-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

Accept pipeline input?True (ByPropertyName)
AliasesSK, SecretAccessKey
-SessionToken <String>

Outputs

This cmdlet returns a collection of Amazon.EC2.Model.SnapshotInfo objects. The service call response (type Amazon.EC2.Model.CreateSnapshotsResponse) can also be referenced from properties attached to the cmdlet entry in the $AWSHistory stack.
