Remove-DfsrConnection

Removes a connection between members of a replication group.

Syntax

Remove-DfsrConnection
      [-GroupName] <String[]>
      [-SourceComputerName] <String>
      [[-DomainName] <String>]
      [-DestinationComputerName] <String>
      [-Force]
      [-Confirm]
      [-WhatIf]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-DfsrConnection cmdlet removes a connection between members of a replication group. After you remove the connections between a pair of server, the Distributed File System (DFS) Replication service cannot replicate data between the servers. You should always delete connections bidirectionally between two servers. Run this cmdlet for the receiving computer and the sending computer.

DFS Replication connections are the logical partnerships between members in a replication group. The DFS Replication service uses the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) protocol to communicate between servers.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a connection between members of a replication group

PS C:\> Remove-DfsrConnection -GroupName "RG24" -SourceComputerName "SRV01" -DestinationComputerName "SRV02"
This operation will remove the connection from the replication group. First computer: SRV01 Second computer: SRV02 Replication group: "RG24"
Are you sure you want to continue to remove this connection?
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"): y

This command removes the connection from the computer named SRV01 to the computer named SRV02 in the replication group named RG24.

Example 2: Remove a connection between members of a replication group without a confirmation

PS C:\> Remove-DfsrConnection -GroupName "RG24" -SourceComputerName "SRV02" -DestinationComputerName "SRV01" -Force

This command removes the connection from the computer named SRV01 to the computer named SRV02 without prompting you to confirm the removal.
