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-WAPackVMRole cmdlet removes virtual machine role objects.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a virtual machine role (which was created using the WAP portal)

PS C:\> $VMRole = Get-WAPackVMRole -Name "ContosoVMRole01"
PS C:\> Remove-WAPackVMRole -VMRole $VMRole

The first command gets the virtual machine role named ContosoVMRole01 by using the Get-WAPackVMRole cmdlet, and then stores that object in the $VMRole variable.

The second command removes the virtual machine role stored in $VMRole. The command prompts you for confirmation.Assuming this virtual machine role was created using the WAP portal, there's no need to specify the cloud service name.

Example 2: Remove a virtual machine role which was created after manually creating a cloud service

PS C:\> $VMRole = Get-WAPackVMRole -Name "ContosoVMRole02"
PS C:\> Remove-WAPackVMRole -VMRole $VMRole -CloudServiceName "ContosoCloudService02"

The first command gets the virtual machine role named "ContosoVMRole02" by using the Get-WAPackVMRole cmdlet, and then stores that object in the $VMRole variable.

The second command removes the virtual machine role stored in $VMRole. The command prompts you for confirmation. Assuming this virtual machine role was not created using the portal, the user needs to specify the cloud service name. In this case named "ContosoCloudService02".

Example 3: Remove a virtual machine role without confirmation

PS C:\> $VMRole = Get-WAPackVMRole -Name "ContosoVMRole03"
PS C:\> Remove-WAPackVMRole -VMRole $VMRole -Force

The first command gets the cloud service named ContosoVMRole03 by using the Get-WAPackVMRole cmdlet, and then stores that object in the $VMRole variable.

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