/AWS1/CL_EC2=>DETACHVOLUME()

About DetachVolume

Detaches an EBS volume from an instance. Make sure to unmount any file systems on the device within your operating system before detaching the volume. Failure to do so can result in the volume becoming stuck in the busy state while detaching. If this happens, detachment can be delayed indefinitely until you unmount the volume, force detachment, reboot the instance, or all three. If an EBS volume is the root device of an instance, it can't be detached while the instance is running. To detach the root volume, stop the instance first.

When a volume with an Amazon Web Services Marketplace product code is detached from an instance, the product code is no longer associated with the instance.

You can't detach or force detach volumes that are attached to Amazon ECS or Fargate tasks. Attempting to do this results in the UnsupportedOperationException exception with the Unable to detach volume attached to ECS tasks error message.

For more information, see Detach an Amazon EBS volume in the Amazon EBS User Guide.

Method Signature

IMPORTING

Required arguments:

IV_VOLUMEID TYPE /AWS1/EC2VOLUMEIDWITHRESOLVER /AWS1/EC2VOLUMEIDWITHRESOLVER

The ID of the volume.

Optional arguments:

IV_DEVICE TYPE /AWS1/EC2STRING /AWS1/EC2STRING

The device name.

IV_FORCE TYPE /AWS1/EC2BOOLEAN /AWS1/EC2BOOLEAN

Forces detachment if the previous detachment attempt did not occur cleanly (for example, logging into an instance, unmounting the volume, and detaching normally). This option can lead to data loss or a corrupted file system. Use this option only as a last resort to detach a volume from a failed instance. The instance won't have an opportunity to flush file system caches or file system metadata. If you use this option, you must perform file system check and repair procedures.

IV_INSTANCEID TYPE /AWS1/EC2INSTANCEIDFORRESOLVER /AWS1/EC2INSTANCEIDFORRESOLVER

The ID of the instance. If you are detaching a Multi-Attach enabled volume, you must specify an instance ID.

IV_DRYRUN TYPE /AWS1/EC2BOOLEAN /AWS1/EC2BOOLEAN

Checks whether you have the required permissions for the action, without actually making the request, and provides an error response. If you have the required permissions, the error response is DryRunOperation. Otherwise, it is UnauthorizedOperation.
