Description

The Remove-CMDistributionPoint cmdlet removes a distribution point. When you remove a distribution point, you remove the designation of a site system server to function as a distribution center for content files for applications, packages, software updates, and operating system deployment.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a distribution point by using the pipeline

PS C:\> Get-CMDistributionPoint -SiteSystemServerName "MySiteSys_11310.Contoso.com" | Remove-CMDistributionPoint -Force

This command gets the distribution point object for the site system server named MySiteSys_11310.Contoso.com and uses the pipeline operator to pass the object to Remove-CMDistributionPoint, which removes the distribution point object. Specifying the Force parameter indicates that the user is not prompted before the distribution point is removed.

Example 2: Remove a distribution point by using an object variable

PS C:\> $DP = Get-CMDistributionPoint -SiteSystemServerName "MySiteSys_11310.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Remove-CMDistributionPoint -InputObject $DP -Force

The first command gets the distribution point object for the site system server named MySiteSys_11310.Contoso.com and stores the object in the $DP variable.

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