Synopsis

Calls the Amazon FSx CreateFileSystemFromBackup API operation.

Syntax

New-FSXFileSystemFromBackup
-BackupId <String>
-ClientRequestToken <String>
-SecurityGroupId <String[]>
-SubnetId <String[]>
-Tag <Tag[]>
-WindowsConfiguration <CreateFileSystemWindowsConfiguration>
-Force <SwitchParameter>

Description

Creates a new Amazon FSx file system from an existing Amazon FSx for Windows File Server backup. If a file system with the specified client request token exists and the parameters match, this operation returns the description of the file system. If a client request token specified by the file system exists and the parameters don't match, this call returns IncompatibleParameterError. If a file system with the specified client request token doesn't exist, this operation does the following:
  • Creates a new Amazon FSx file system from backup with an assigned ID, and an initial lifecycle state of CREATING.
  • Returns the description of the file system.
Parameters like Active Directory, default share name, automatic backup, and backup settings default to the parameters of the file system that was backed up, unless overridden. You can explicitly supply other settings. By using the idempotent operation, you can retry a CreateFileSystemFromBackup call without the risk of creating an extra file system. This approach can be useful when an initial call fails in a way that makes it unclear whether a file system was created. Examples are if a transport level timeout occurred, or your connection was reset. If you use the same client request token and the initial call created a file system, the client receives success as long as the parameters are the same. The CreateFileSystemFromBackup call returns while the file system's lifecycle state is still CREATING. You can check the file-system creation status by calling the DescribeFileSystems operation, which returns the file system state along with other information.

Parameters

-BackupId <String>
The service has not provided documentation for this parameter; please refer to the service's API reference documentation for the latest available information.
Required?False
Position?1
Accept pipeline input?True (ByValue, ByPropertyName)
-ClientRequestToken <String>
(Optional) A string of up to 64 ASCII characters that Amazon FSx uses to ensure idempotent creation. This string is automatically filled on your behalf when you use the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) or an AWS SDK.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
-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
-SecurityGroupId <String[]>
A list of IDs for the security groups that apply to the specified network interfaces created for file system access. These security groups apply to all network interfaces. This value isn't returned in later describe requests.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
AliasesSecurityGroupIds
-SubnetId <String[]>
A list of IDs for the subnets that the file system will be accessible from. Currently, you can specify only one subnet. The file server is also launched in that subnet's Availability Zone.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
AliasesSubnetIds
-Tag <Tag[]>
The tags to be applied to the file system at file system creation. The key value of the Name tag appears in the console as the file system name.
Required?False
Position?Named
Accept pipeline input?False
AliasesTags
-WindowsConfiguration <CreateFileSystemWindowsConfiguration>
The configuration for this Microsoft Windows file system.
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 BackupId parameter.

Outputs

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