Client

class StorageGateway.Client

A low-level client representing AWS Storage Gateway:

import boto3

client = boto3.client('storagegateway')

These are the available methods:

activate_gateway(**kwargs)

Activates the gateway you previously deployed on your host. For more information, see Activate the AWS Storage Gateway . In the activation process, you specify information such as the you want to use for storing snapshots, the time zone for scheduled snapshots the gateway snapshot schedule window, an activation key, and a name for your gateway. The activation process also associates your gateway with your account; for more information, see UpdateGatewayInformation .

Note

You must turn on the gateway VM before you can activate your gateway.

Request Syntax

response = client.activate_gateway(
    ActivationKey='string',
    GatewayName='string',
    GatewayTimezone='string',
    GatewayRegion='string',
    GatewayType='string',
    TapeDriveType='string',
    MediumChangerType='string'
)
Parameters
  • ActivationKey (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    Your gateway activation key. You can obtain the activation key by sending an HTTP GET request with redirects enabled to the gateway IP address (port 80). The redirect URL returned in the response provides you the activation key for your gateway in the query string parameter activationKey . It may also include other activation-related parameters, however, these are merely defaults -- the arguments you pass to the ActivateGateway API call determine the actual configuration of your gateway.

  • GatewayName (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    The name you configured for your gateway.

  • GatewayTimezone (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A value that indicates the time zone you want to set for the gateway. The time zone is used, for example, for scheduling snapshots and your gateway's maintenance schedule.

  • GatewayRegion (string) --

    [REQUIRED]

    A value that indicates the region where you want to store the snapshot backups. The gateway region specified must be the same region as the region in your Host header in the request. For more information about available regions and endpoints for AWS Storage Gateway, see Regions and Endpoints in the Amazon Web Services Glossary .

    Valid Values: "us-east-1", "us-west-1", "us-west-2", "eu-west-1", "eu-central-1", "ap-northeast-1", "ap-northeast-2", "ap-southeast-1", "ap-southeast-2", "sa-east-1"

  • GatewayType (string) -- A value that defines the type of gateway to activate. The type specified is critical to all later functions of the gateway and cannot be changed after activation. The default value is STORED .
  • TapeDriveType (string) --

    The value that indicates the type of tape drive to use for gateway-VTL. This field is optional.

    Valid Values: "IBM-ULT3580-TD5"

  • MediumChangerType (string) --

    The value that indicates the type of medium changer to use for gateway-VTL. This field is optional.

    Valid Values: "STK-L700", "AWS-Gateway-VTL"

Return type

}

Response Structure

  • (dict) --

    AWS Storage Gateway returns the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the activated gateway. It is a string made of information such as your account, gateway name, and region. This ARN is used to reference the gateway in other API operations as well as resource-based authorization.

    Note

    For gateways activated prior to September 02, 2015 the gateway ARN contains the gateway name rather than the gateway id. Changing the name of the gateway has no effect on the gateway ARN.

    • GatewayARN (string) --

      The Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway. Use the ListGateways operation to return a list of gateways for your account and region.

Examples

Activates the gateway you previously deployed on your host.

response = client.activate_gateway(
    ActivationKey='29AV1-3OFV9-VVIUB-NKT0I-LRO6V',
    GatewayName='My_Gateway',

create_snapshot(**kwargs)

Initiates a snapshot of a volume.

AWS Storage Gateway provides the ability to back up point-in-time snapshots of your data to Amazon Simple Storage (S3) for durable off-site recovery, as well as import the data to an Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) volume in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). You can take snapshots of your gateway volume on a scheduled or ad-hoc basis. This API enables you to take ad-hoc snapshot. For more information, see Working With Snapshots in the AWS Storage Gateway Console .

In the CreateSnapshot request you identify the volume by providing its Amazon Resource Name (ARN). You must also provide description for the snapshot. When AWS Storage Gateway takes the snapshot of specified volume, the snapshot and description appears in the AWS Storage Gateway Console. In response, AWS Storage Gateway returns you a snapshot ID. You can use this snapshot ID to check the snapshot progress or later use it when you want to create a volume from a snapshot.

Note

To list or delete a snapshot, you must use the Amazon EC2 API. For more information, see DescribeSnapshots or DeleteSnapshot in the EC2 API reference .

Warning

Volume and snapshot IDs are changing to a longer length ID format. For more information, see the important note on the Welcome page.

create_snapshot_from_volume_recovery_point(**kwargs)

Initiates a snapshot of a gateway from a volume recovery point. This operation is supported only for the gateway-cached volume architecture.

A volume recovery point is a point in time at which all data of the volume is consistent and from which you can create a snapshot. To get a list of volume recovery point for gateway-cached volumes, use ListVolumeRecoveryPoints .

In the CreateSnapshotFromVolumeRecoveryPoint request, you identify the volume by providing its Amazon Resource Name (ARN). You must also provide a description for the snapshot. When AWS Storage Gateway takes a snapshot of the specified volume, the snapshot and its description appear in the AWS Storage Gateway console. In response, AWS Storage Gateway returns you a snapshot ID. You can use this snapshot ID to check the snapshot progress or later use it when you want to create a volume from a snapshot.

create_stored_iscsi_volume(**kwargs)

Creates a volume on a specified gateway. This operation is supported only for the gateway-stored volume architecture.

The size of the volume to create is inferred from the disk size. You can choose to preserve existing data on the disk, create volume from an existing snapshot, or create an empty volume. If you choose to create an empty gateway volume, then any existing data on the disk is erased.

In the request you must specify the gateway and the disk information on which you are creating the volume. In response, AWS Storage Gateway creates the volume and returns volume information such as the volume Amazon Resource Name (ARN), its size, and the iSCSI target ARN that initiators can use to connect to the volume target.

}
reset_cache(**kwargs)

Resets all cache disks that have encountered a error and makes the disks available for reconfiguration as cache storage. If your cache disk encounters a error, the gateway prevents read and write operations on virtual tapes in the gateway. For example, an error can occur when a disk is corrupted or removed from the gateway. When a cache is reset, the gateway loses its cache storage. At this point you can reconfigure the disks as cache disks.

Warning

If the cache disk you are resetting contains data that has not been uploaded to Amazon S3 yet, that data can be lost. After you reset cache disks, there will be no configured cache disks left in the gateway, so you must configure at least one new cache disk for your gateway to function properly.

shutdown_gateway(**kwargs)

Shuts down a gateway. To specify which gateway to shut down, use the Amazon Resource Name (ARN) of the gateway in the body of your request.

The operation shuts down the gateway service component running in the storage gateway's virtual machine (VM) and not the VM.

Note

If you want to shut down the VM, it is recommended that you first shut down the gateway component in the VM to avoid unpredictable conditions.

After the gateway is shutdown, you cannot call any other API except StartGateway , DescribeGatewayInformation , and ListGateways . For more information, see ActivateGateway . Your applications cannot read from or write to the gateway's storage volumes, and there are no snapshots taken.

Note

When you make a shutdown request, you will get a 200 OK success response immediately. However, it might take some time for the gateway to shut down. You can call the DescribeGatewayInformation API to check the status. For more information, see ActivateGateway .

If do not intend to use the gateway again, you must delete the gateway (using DeleteGateway ) to no longer pay software charges associated with the gateway.

update_gateway_software_now(**kwargs)

Updates the gateway virtual machine (VM) software. The request immediately triggers the software update.

Note

When you make this request, you get a 200 OK success response immediately. However, it might take some time for the update to complete. You can call DescribeGatewayInformation to verify the gateway is in the STATE_RUNNING state.

Warning

A software update forces a system restart of your gateway. You can minimize the chance of any disruption to your applications by increasing your iSCSI Initiators' timeouts. For more information about increasing iSCSI Initiator timeouts for Windows and Linux, see Customizing Your Windows iSCSI Settings and Customizing Your Linux iSCSI Settings , respectively.
