Given I have a PRIMARY server and a REPLICA. When I need to run a MIRROR server I want for security reasons to have READ-ONLY ACCESS

Q: How to generate a second pair of access key and secret key for read-only access?

Thanks for your help!

  • Create a new IAM user in the AWS Console. Give it the S3 Read Only access policy. – ceejayoz Sep 18 at 13:10
  • I think you didn't read. It's about Minio, not AWS :) Minio is self hosted version of S3. – Krzysztofa Krzysztof Sep 18 at 13:38
  • Then you shouldn't tag this with Amazon S3. The Minio quickstart guide appears to cover this - search docs.min.io/docs/minio-multi-user-quickstart-guide.html for readonly. – ceejayoz Sep 18 at 13:45
  • Thanks, I was looking for totally different keywords, maybe too technical. – Krzysztofa Krzysztof Sep 18 at 13:55
  • minio read only is how I got there. FYI :-) – ceejayoz Sep 18 at 14:11

The solution looks to be there, I looked for different keywords, so I didn't find it before.


When this error happened:

<ERROR> Unable to update the server. The specified method is not allowed against this resource.

I had to upgrade Minio to at least RELEASE.2019-09-11T19-53-16Z.
