Description

The Remove-DfsnRootTarget cmdlet removes a target for a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace root. This cmdlet deletes a target, but does not delete the contents of the target.

A DFS namespace root can have more than one root target. If you remove the last root target associated with a DFS namespace root, this cmdlet deletes the namespace as well. Users cannot use the DFS namespace path after you delete the namespace.

For more information about DFS namespaces, see Overview of DFS Namespaces on TechNet.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a root target

PS C:\> Remove-DfsnRootTarget -TargetPath "\\Contoso-FS\AccountingSoftware" -Path "\\Contoso\AccountingSoftware"

This command removes a DFS root target path \\Contoso-FS\AccountingSoftware from the DFS namespace that has the path \\Contoso\AccountingSoftware.

Required Parameters

-TargetPath

Specifies a path for the root target. This cmdlet removes the root target that has the path specified.

Type:String
Aliases:Target, DfsTarget, RootTargetPath
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Type:SwitchParameter

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type:CimSession[]
Aliases:Session
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Cleanup

Indicates that the cmdlet attempts to force a clean-up of the root target in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS).

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

-Path

Specifies the path for the root of a DFS namespace.

Type:String
Aliases:DfsPath, NamespaceRoot
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
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.
