Description

The Stop-VMInitialReplication cmdlet stops an ongoing initial replication that uses either a virtual machine restored from backup or the network. It does not stop an initial replication that uses external media. For an initial replication that uses external media, you can use this cmdlet to stop the export, which returns the virtual machine to a pending state. After an export is finished, the initial replication cannot be stopped.

Examples

Example 1

PS C:\> Stop-VMInitialReplication VM01

This example stops initial replication of a virtual machine named VM01.

Example 2

PS C:\> Stop-VMInitialReplication *

This example stops initial replication of all virtual machines whose initial replication is in progress on the local Replica server.

Required Parameters

-VM

Specifies the virtual machine whose initial replication is to be stopped.

Type:VirtualMachine[]

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 an ongoing initial replication is to be stopped. 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 an object is to be passed through to the pipeline representing the virtual machine whose initial replication is to be stopped.

Type:SwitchParameter
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; Microsoft.HyperV.PowerShell.VirtualMachine if PassThru is specified.
