DESCRIPTION

The Remove-CMDriver cmdlet removes a device driver from the Driver Catalog. The source is not affected.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Remove a driver specified by a driver object

PS C:\> $Driver = Get-CMDriver -Name "Driver01"
PS C:\> Remove-CMDriver -InputObject $Driver -Force

The first command gets the driver object named Driver01 and stores the object in the $Driver variable.

The second command removes the driver stored in $Driver. Specifying the Force parameter indicates that the user is not prompted before the driver is removed.

Example 2: Remove a driver by using the pipeline

PS C:\> Get-CMDriver -Name "Driver02" | Remove-CMDriver -Force

This command gets the driver object named Driver02 and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to Remove-CMDriver, which removes the driver object. Specifying the Force parameter indicates that the user is not prompted before the driver is removed.
