Deletes the IPv6 Scopes from the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server service corresponding to the specified prefixes.

Syntax

Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope
      [-Prefix] <IPAddress[]>
      [-AsJob]
      [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
      [-ComputerName <String>]
      [-Force]
      [-Passthru]
      [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
      [-Confirm]
      [-WhatIf]

Description

The Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope cmdlet deletes the IPv6 Scopes from the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server service corresponding to the specified prefixes. Deleting a scope deletes all of the associated settings and leases, if any are present in the scope.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020::

This example deletes the specified DHCPv6 scope from the specified DHCP server service.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\>Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020:: -Force

This example deletes the specified DHCPv6 scope from the specified DHCP server service without requesting user confirmation even if the scope is active or contains active client leases.

EXAMPLE 3

PS C:\>Get-DhcpServerv6Scope | Where-Object -FilterScript { $_.State -Eq "Inactive" } | Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -Force -Passthru

This example deletes all of the disabled scopes on the DHCP server service. The Get-DhcpServerv6Scope cmdlet returns the scope objects and pipes the objects into the Where-Objecthttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=113423 cmdlet. The Where-Objecthttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkID=113423 cmdlet filters the scope objects for the state being InActive (or disabled) and pipes the objects into this cmdlet, which deletes the disabled scopes passed through the pipeline. If non-empty scopes are deleted without the Force parameter, then the cmdlet displays an error. This cmdlet does not prompt for user confirmation. Active scopes that are empty get deleted without the Force parameter.

Required Parameters

-Prefix

Specifies one or more IPv6 subnet prefixes of the scopes being deleted.

Type:IPAddress[]
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

ps_cimcommon_asjob

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
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-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227967 or Get-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227966 cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

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

Specifies the DNS name, or IPv4 or IPv6 address, of the target computer running the DHCP server service.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

Specifies that the scope will be deleted even if there are active leases in the scope.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Passthru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
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.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:False
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
