Description

The Remove-DhcpServerv6Lease cmdlet deletes one or more IPv6 lease records from the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server service. If the Prefix parameter is specified, this cmdlet removes all of the leases for the specified prefix. If the IPAddress parameter is specified, this cmdlet deletes the specified leases.

Examples

Example 1: Delete all leases in a scope

PS C:\> Remove-DhcpServerv6Lease -ComputerName "dhcpserver.contoso.com" -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020::

This example deletes all of the IP address leases in the scope 2001:4898:7020:1020:: from the DHCP server service that runs on the computer named dhcpserver.contoso.com.

Example 2: Delete leases for specified addresses

PS C:\> Remove-DhcpServerv6Lease -ComputerName "dhcpserver.contoso.com" -IPAddress 2001:4898:7020:1020::10,2001:4898:7020:1030::20

This example deletes the IP address leases for 2001:4898:7020:1020::10 and 2001:4898:7020:1030::20 from the DHCP server service that runs on the computer named dhcpserver.contoso.com.

Example 3: Delete leases for a scope byusing the pipeline

PS C:\> Get-DhcpServerv6Lease -ComputerName "dhcpserver.contoso.com" -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020:: | Remove-DhcpServerv6Lease -ComputerName "dhcpserver.contoso.com"

This example deletes all of the IPv6 address leases from the scope 2001:4898:7020:1020::. The Get-DhcpServerv6Lease cmdlet returns the IP address lease objects and pipes the objects into this cmdlet, which deletes each of the address leases.

Example 4: Delete all the leases in all scopes on a computer

PS C:\> Get-DhcpServerv6Scope -ComputerName "dhcpserver.contoso.com" | Remove-DhcpServerv6Lease -ComputerName "dhcpserver.contoso.com"

The above command deletes all IPv6 address leases from all the DHCPv6 scopes. The cmdlet Get-DhcpServerv6Scope cmdlet returns the DHCPv6 scope objects and pipe the objects into this cmdlet, which deletes each of the address leases passed through the pipeline.

Required Parameters

-IPAddress

Specifies one or more IPv6 addresses for which the lease records are deleted from the DHCP server service.

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

Specifies the IPv6 subnet prefix of the scope from which the leases are deleted.

Type:IPAddress
Position:1
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
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-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
-ComputerName

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

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

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

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