Description

The Remove-AzureRmDnsZone cmdlet permanently deletes a Domain Name System (DNS) zone from a specified resource group. All record sets contained in the zone are also deleted.

You can pass a DnsZone object using the Name parameter or by using the pipeline operator, or alternatively you can specify the ZoneName and ResourceGroupName parameters.

You can use the Confirm parameter and $ConfirmPreference Windows PowerShell variable to control whether the cmdlet prompts you for confirmation.

When specifying the zone using a DnsZone object (passed via the pipeline or Zone parameter), the zone is not deleted if it has been changed in Azure DNS since the local DnsZone object was retrieved (only operations directly on the DNS zone resource count as changes, operations on record sets within the zone do not). This provides protection for concurrent zone changes. This can be suppressed using the Overwrite parameter, which deletes the zone regardless of concurrent changes.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a zone

PS C:\>Remove-AzureRmDnsZone -Name "myzone.com" -ResourceGroupName "MyResourceGroup"

This command removes the zone named myzone.com from the resource group named MyResourceGroup.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies the name of the DNS zone that this cmdlet removes. You must also specify the ResourceGroupName parameter.

Alternatively, you can specify the DNS zone using the Zone parameter.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ResourceGroupName

Specifies the name of the resource group that contains the zone to remove. You must also specify the ZoneName parameter.

Alternatively, you can specify the DNS zone using a DnsZone object, passed via either the pipeline or the Zone parameter.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Zone

Specifies the DNS zone to delete. The DnsZone object passed can also be passed via the pipeline.

Alternatively, you can specify the DNS zone to delete by using the ZoneName and ResourceGroupName parameters.

Type:DnsZone
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:cf
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

This parameter is deprecated for this cmdlet. It will be removed in a future release.

To control whether this cmdlet prompts you for confirmation, use the Confirm parameter.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Overwrite

When specifying the zone using a DnsZone object (passed via the pipeline or Zone parameter), the zone is not deleted if it has been changed in Azure DNS since the local DnsZone object was retrieved (only operations directly on the DNS zone resource count as changes, operations on record sets within the zone do not). This provides protection for concurrent zone changes.

This can be suppressed using the Overwrite parameter, which deletes the zone regardless of concurrent changes.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

passthru

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-WhatIf

Shows what would happen if the cmdlet runs. The cmdlet is not run.

Type:SwitchParameter
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

Microsoft.Azure.Commands.Dns.DnsZone

You can pipe a DnsZone object to this cmdlet.

Outputs

None

This cmdlet does not generate any output.

Notes

Due to the potentially high impact of deleting a DNS zone, by default, this cmdlet prompts for confirmation if the $ConfirmPreference Windows PowerShell variable has any value other than None.

If you specify Confirm or Confirm:$True, this cmdlet prompts you for confirmation before it runs. If you specify Confirm:$False, the cmdlet does not prompt you for confirmation.
