OpenZFSOriginSnapshotConfiguration - Amazon FSx
Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).


The snapshot configuration used when creating an Amazon FSx for OpenZFS volume from a snapshot.



The strategy used when copying data from the snapshot to the new volume.

  • CLONE - The new volume references the data in the origin snapshot. Cloning a snapshot is faster than copying the data from a snapshot to a new volume and doesn't consume disk throughput. However, the origin snapshot can't be deleted if there is a volume using its copied data.

  • FULL_COPY - Copies all data from the snapshot to the new volume.


The INCREMENTAL_COPY option is only for updating an existing volume by using a snapshot from another FSx for OpenZFS file system. For more information, see CopySnapshotAndUpdateVolume.
