Description

The Remove-VMReplication cmdlet removes the replication relationship of a virtual machine. Replication must be removed independently from both the primary and Replica virtual machines. Removing replication on a Replica virtual machine does not delete the Replica virtual machine.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Remove-VMReplication VM01

This example removes the replication relationship of virtual machine VM01.

Example 2

PS C:\> Remove-VMReplication *

This example removes the replication relationships from all replica-enabled virtual machines on the local Hyper-V host.

Required Parameters

-VM

Specifies the virtual machine for which the replication relationship is to be removed.

Type:VirtualMachine[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMName

Specifies the name of the virtual machine for which the replication relationship is to be removed.

Type:String[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-VMReplication

Specifies a virtual machine replication object associated with the virtual machine whose replication relationship is to be removed.

Type:VMReplication[]
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-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[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ComputerName

Specifies one or more Hyper-V hosts on which the replication relationship of a virtual machine is to be removed. NetBIOS names, IP addresses, and fully qualified domain names are allowable. The default is the local computer. Use localhost or a dot (.) to specify the local computer explicitly.

Type:String[]
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
-Credential

Specifies one or more user accounts that have permission to perform this action. The default is the current user.

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

Specifies that a VMReplication object is to be passed through to the pipeline representing the virtual machine for which the replication relationship will be removed.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ReplicationRelationshipType

Specifies the replication relationship type of the virtual machine. Specify whether the replication relationship is a simple primary to replica or is an extended replication chain. The cmdlet removes the replication relationship of the virtual machines that have the replication type that you specify.

Type:VMReplicationRelationshipType
Aliases:Relationship
Parameter Sets:Simple, Extended
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

Outputs

None by default; VMReplication if PassThru is specified.
