Description

The Remove-VMGroupMember cmdlet removes either virtual machines or groups of virtual machines from a virtual machine group.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a virtual machine from a group

PS C:\> $VM01 = Get-VM -Name "ContosoVirtualMachine01"
PS C:\> Remove-VMGroupMember -Name "VirtualMachineGroup" -VM $VM01

The first command uses the Get-VM cmdlet to get a virtual machine named ContosoVirtualMachine01. The command stores this virtual machine object in the $VM01 variable.

The second command removes the virtual machine in $VM01 from the group named VirtualMachineGroup.
