Description

These topics are deprecated and will be removed in the future. For the updated topics, see Azure WAPack Cmdlets (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/dn776450.aspx). This topic describes the cmdlet in the 0.8.1 version of the Microsoft Azure PowerShell module. To find out the version of the module you're using, from the Azure PowerShell console, type (Get-Module -Name Azure).Version.

The Remove-WAPackVM cmdlet removes virtual machine objects.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a virtual machine

PS C:\> $VirtualMachine = Get-WAPackVM -Name "ContosoV126"
PS C:\> Remove-WAPackVM -VM $VirtualMachine

The first command gets the virtual machine named ContosoV126 by using the Get-WAPackVM cmdlet, and then stores that object in the $VirtualMachine variable.

The second command removes the virtual machine stored in $VirtualMachine. The command prompts you for confirmation.

Example 2: Remove a virtual machine without confirmation

PS C:\> $VirtualMachine = Get-WAPackVM -Name "ContosoV126"
PS C:\> Remove-WAPackVM -VM $VirtualMachine -Force

The first command gets the virtual machine named ContosoV126 by using the Get-WAPackVM cmdlet, and then stores that object in the $VirtualMachine variable.

The second command removes the virtual machine stored in $VirtualMachine. This command includes the Force parameter. The command does not prompt you for confirmation.
