Description

The Remove-AzureStorSimpleDeviceBackupPolicy cmdlet removes an existing BackupPolicy object. After you remove a backup policy, no further backups take place based on that policy. This cmdlet also deletes all schedules associated with the deleted policy.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a backup policy

PS C:\>Remove-AzureStorSimpleDeviceBackupPolicy -DeviceName "Contoso63-AppVm" -BackupPolicyId "03710b4c-82c1-40ca-be5c-40289dc49642" -Force
VERBOSE: ClientRequestId: b3e4d485-eae4-4cf4-a43b-815f3abcd2dd_PS
VERBOSE: ClientRequestId: a260ee98-46aa-49e0-91ac-31d4155f4cae_PS
VERBOSE: About to create a job to remove your backuppolicy! 
VERBOSE: ClientRequestId: 92a9c264-90df-4345-a495-92767dd266f2_PS

VERBOSE: The remove task is submitted successfully. Please use the command Get-AzureStorSimpleTask -InstanceId
695be190-ac81-4cf2-b1c5-03ef6b08d005 for tracking the task's status

This command removes the BackupPolicy that has the instance ID 03710b4c-82c1-40ca-be5c-40289dc49642, so that no more backups are made based on this policy. The command also deletes all schedules associated with this policy. The command starts the operation that removes the BackupPolicy object, and then returns a TaskResponse object. To see the status of the task, use the Get-AzureStorSimpleTask cmdlet.

Example 2: Remove the first of the backup policies for a device

PS C:\>$Policies = Get-AzureStorSimpleDeviceBackupPolicy -DeviceName "Contoso63-AppVm"
PS C:\> Remove-AzureStorSimpleDeviceBackupPolicy -DeviceName "Contoso63-AppVm" -BackupPolicyId $Policies[0].InstanceId -Force -WaitForComplete
VERBOSE: ClientRequestId: db3b49fa-cffa-446d-ba52-daa6802e00f7_PS
VERBOSE: ClientRequestId: 70e2b56f-c2df-40d0-a1e5-d7a4d7e25962_PS
VERBOSE: About to run a job to remove your backuppolicy!

JobId        : 820a246e-54b6-41a9-bdd5-15d5daea9b0a
JobResult    : Succeeded

VERBOSE: The job created for your remove operation has completed successfully.

The first command gets the backup policies for the device named Contoso63-AppVm, and then stores them in the $Policies variable.

The second command removes the first backup policy from Contoso63-AppVm. The command uses standard dot syntax to identify the InstanceId property of the first item in $Policies. This command specifies the WaitForComplete parameter, so the command completes the task, and then returns a TaskStatusInfo object for the task.

Example 3: Remove a backup policy by using the pipeline

PS C:\>Get-AzureStorSimpleDeviceBackupPolicy -DeviceName "Contoso63-AppVm" -BackupPolicyName "TSQAVolume01_Default" | Remove-AzureStorSimpleDeviceBackupPolicy -DeviceName "Contoso63-AppVm" -Force -WaitForComplete
