Updating a storage virtual machine - FSx for ONTAP
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).

Updating a storage virtual machine

You can update the following storage virtual machine (SVM) configuration properties using the Amazon FSx console, Amazon CLI, and Amazon FSx API:

  • SVM administrative account password.

  • SVM Active Directory (AD) configuration – You can join an SVM to an AD, or modify the AD configuration of an SVM already joined to an AD. For more information, see Managing SVM Active Directory configurations.

To update the SVM administrator account credentials (console)
  1. Open the Amazon FSx console at https://console.amazonaws.cn/fsx/.

  2. Choose the SVM to update as follows:

    • In the left navigation pane, choose File systems, and then choose the ONTAP file system for which you want to update an SVM.

    • Choose the Storage virtual machines tab.


    • To display a list of all the SVMs available in your Amazon Web Services account in the current Amazon Web Services Region, expand ONTAP and choose Storage virtual machines.

  3. Choose the storage virtual machine that you want to update.

  4. Choose Actions > Update administrator password. The Update SVM administrative credentials window appears.

  5. Enter the new password for the vsadmin user, and confirm it.

  6. Choose Update credentials to save the new password.

To update the SVM administrator account credentials (CLI)
  • To update the configuration of an FSx for ONTAP SVM, use the update-storage-virtual-machine CLI command (or the equivalent UpdateStorageVirtualMachine API operation), as shown in the following example.

    aws fsx update-storage-virtual-machine \ --storage-virtual-machine-id svm-abcdef01234567890 \ --svm-admin-password new-svm-password \

After successfully creating the storage virtual machine, Amazon FSx returns its description in JSON format, as shown in the following example.
