Remove-DfsrMember

Removes computers from a replication group.

Syntax

Remove-DfsrMember
      [-GroupName] <String[]>
      [-ComputerName] <String[]>
      [[-DomainName] <String>]
      [-Force]
      [-Confirm]
      [-WhatIf]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-DfsrMember cmdlet removes member computers from a replication group. Members of a replication group host replicated folders. If you remove a member from its replication group, Distributed File System (DFS) Replication stops replication on that member. This cmdlet does not delete the contents of replicated folders or their private data. Use the Add-DfsrMember to add member computers to a group.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a member from a group

PS C:\> Remove-DfsrMember -GroupName "River Branch Office" -ComputerName "SRV02"
This operation will remove the computer and all of its memberships and connections. 
Computer: SRV02 Replication group:"River Branch Office" 
Are you sure you want to continue to remove this computer from its replication group and all of its memberships and
connections?
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"):

This command removes the member computer named SRV02 from the River Branch Office replication group. Because this example does not include the Force parameter, the command prompts you for confirmation.

Example 2: Remove all members from a group

PS C:\> Remove-DfsrMember -GroupName "RG07" -ComputerName * -Force

This command removes all the member computers from the replication group named RG07. Because the command includes the Force parameter, it removes the members without prompting for confirmation.
