Description

The Remove-DnsServerResourceRecord removes resource record objects from a DNS zone.

You can either use the Get-DnsServerResourceRecord cmdlet to specify an object, or you can specify the RRtype, Name and RecordData of the resource record you want to remove. If you specify an RRtype or name and there are multiple resource records, you can specify the RecordData to delete a specific record. If you do not specify RecordData, the cmdlet deletes all records that match RRtype and Name for the specified zone.
