      [-LUN] <Int32>
      [-DeleteVHD]
      [-InformationAction <ActionPreference>]

Description

The Remove-AzureDataDisk cmdlet removes a data disk from an Azure virtual machine. By default, this cmdlet does not remove the data disk blob from the storage account.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a data disk

PS C:\> Get-AzureVM -ServiceName "ContosoService" -Name "VirtualMachine07" | Remove-AzureDataDisk -LUN 0

This command gets the virtual machine named VirtualMachine07 in the service named ContosoService by using the Get-AzureVM cmdlet. The command passes the virtual machine to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The current cmdlet removes the data disk that has the LUN 0.

Example 2: Remove a data disk and the virtual hard disk file

PS C:\> Get-AzureVM -ServiceName "ContosoService" -Name "VirtualMachine07" | Remove-AzureDataDisk -LUN 0 -DeleteVHD | Update-AzureVM

This command gets the virtual machine named VirtualMachine07 in the service named ContosoService. The command passes the virtual machine to the current cmdlet. The current cmdlet removes the data disk that has the LUN 0. The command includes the DeleteVHD parameter. Therefore, it also deletes the underlying virtual hard disk. The command updates the virtual machine to reflect your changes by using the Update-AzureVM cmdlet.
