Description

The Remove-DnsServerZoneScope cmdlet removes a zone scope from an existing zone on a Domain Name System (DNS) server. You cannot delete the default scope that the DNS server automatically creates.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a zone scope

PS C:\> Remove-DnsServerZoneScope -ZoneName "contoso.com" -Name "contoso_NorthAmerica" -PassThru -Verbose

VERBOSE: The scope contoso_NorthAmerica will be removed from the zone contoso.com on server SERVER17. 

Confirm
The scope contoso_NorthAmerica will be removed from the zone contoso.com on server SERVER17. Do you want to continue? 
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"): Y

ZoneScope            FileName
---------            --------
contoso_NorthAmerica contoso_NorthAmerica.dns

This command removes the zone scope named contoso_NorthAmerica from the zone named contoso.com.

Example 2: Remove all zone scopes

PS C:\> Get-DnsServerZoneScope -ZoneName "contoso.com" | Remove-DnsServerZoneScope -Force -PassThru

ZoneScope            FileName
---------            --------
contoso_NorthAmerica contoso_NorthAmerica.dns

This command gets all the scopes for a zone by using the Get-DnsServerZoneScope cmdlet. The command passes the zone scopes to the current cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The current cmdlet delets each of the zone scopes.

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies the name of the scope to delete.

Type:String
Aliases:ZoneScope
Position:2
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ZoneName

Specifies the name of a zone. This cmdlet removes a zone from the zone that this parameter specifies.

Type:String
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 a remote DNS server. You can specify an IP address or any value that resolves to an IP address, such as a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), host name, or NETBIOS name.

-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.
