Description

The Remove-DfsrPropagationTestFile cmdlet removes test files from a Distributed File System (DFS) Replication replicated folder. Once you remove the file from one member computer in a replication group, DFS Replication removes the file from all other members. To create test files, use the Start-DfsrPropagationTest cmdlet.

Test files contain only test metadata. You can remove them at any time.

Examples

Example 1: Remove all test files from a specified replicated folder

PS C:\> Remove-DfsrPropagationTestFile -GroupName "RG01" -FolderName "RF07" -ComputerName "SRV01" -AgeInDays 0
This operation will remove the propagation test files from the computer named "SRV01" that are more than 0 days old.
Are you sure you want to continue to remove this propagation test file?
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"):

This command removes all propagation test files from the RF07 folder on the computer named SRV01. This computer is part of the group named RG01. The value of zero (0) for the AgeInDays parameter causes the command to remove all test files, no matter how long ago you created them. The command does not include the Force parameter, so you must confirm the removal.

Required Parameters

-AgeInDays

Aliases:RG, RgName
Position:0
Default value:None
