Remove-IISConfigAttribute

Removes a configuration attribute from an IIS configuration section or configuration element attribute.

Syntax

Remove-IISConfigAttribute
      [-ConfigElement] <ConfigurationElement>
      [-AttributeName] <String>
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-IISConfigAttribute cmdlet removes a configuration attribute from an Internet Information Services (IIS) configuration section or a configuration element. The value removed is the value for the given ConfigurationElement and not necessarily the effective value for a given site / virtual directory / folder etc. To obtain the effective attribute values, always retrieve the configuration element by specifying the commit path as the deepest level possible. Even the configuration attribute is not defined at that level, the parent attributes are scanned and the effective configuration element is returned. You can then work on this ConfigurationElement to get/set/remove configuration attribute values.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a configuration attribute from an IIS web site.

PS C:\> Get-IISSite "Default Web Site" | Get-IISConfigElement -ChildElementName "limits" | Remove-IISConfigAttribute -AttributeName "MaxUrlSegments"

This command removes the configuration attribute value for the attribute MaxUrlSegments from the Default Web Site, defaulting to its parent or system wide defaults.

Example 2: Remove configuration attribute values from different parts of the configuration store:

PS C:\> Get-IISConfigSection "system.webServer/asp" | Remove-IISConfigAttribute -AttributeName "ScriptErrorMessage"

This command removes the global attribute value for ScriptErrorMessage, defaulting to the schema default.
