Description

The Remove-HpcPool cmdlet removes the specified resource pool. Returns an error if the pool is used in one or more templates. You can use the Force parameter to force removal of the pools, which resets the template or templates to use the default pool.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a resource pool by name

PS C:\>Remove-HpcPool -Scheduler "HeadNode" -Name "Pool01"

This command removes a resource pool using the name of the head node and the name of the pool that you want to remove:

Required Parameters

-Name

Specifies the name of the pool on the cluster to be deleted. You cannot specify both the Name and the Pool parameters.

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

Specifies the HpcPool object to remove. You cannot specify both the Name and the Pool parameters.

Type:HpcPool
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-ClusterConnectionString

Specifies an array of cluster connection strings for the cluster to which you want to add the device drivers. The value format is host1,host2,host3. If you do not specify the ClusterConnectionString parameter, this cmdlet uses the connection string on the head node that the CCP_CONNECTIONSTRING environment variable specifies. To set this environment variable, run the following cmdlet: Set-Content Env: CCP_CONNECTIONSTRING \<head_node_name\>.

This parameter was introduced in HPC Pack 2016.

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

Indicates that this operation forces the removal of the specified pool. This parameter resets the template or templates to use the default pool.

Type:SwitchParameter

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Scheduler

Specifies the host name or IP address of the head node that contains the resource pool. The value must be a valid computer name or IP address. If you do not specify the Scheduler parameter, this cmdlet uses the scheduler on the head node that the CCP_SCHEDULER environment variable specifies. To set this environment variable, run the following cmdlet:

Set-Content Env:CCP_SCHEDULER \<head_node_name\>

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
