Description

The Remove-CMConfigurationItem cmdlet removes specified configuration items from Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager. You can specify items by ID, name, or by use of the cmdlet.

Configuration items contain one or more settings, along with compliance rules. Items usually define a unit of configuration you want to. For more information about configuration items, see Introduction to Compliance Settings in Configuration Manager on TechNet.

Examples

Example 1: Remove an item using an ID

PS C:\> Remove-CMConfigurationItem -Id "16777568"

This command removes a configuration item with the specified identifier.

Example 2: Remove an item using a name

PS C:\> Remove-CMConfigurationItem -Name "ConfigItem76"

This command removes a configuration item named ConfigItem76.

Example 3: Remove an item using a variable

PS C:\> $CIObj=Get-CMConfigurationItem -Id "16777568"
PS C:\> Remove-CMConfigurationItem -InputObject $CIObj

The first command gets a configuration item with the specified identifier and stores it in the $CIObj variable.

The second command removes the item stored in the $CIObj variable.
