Description

The Remove-NetIPAddress cmdlet removes an IP address and its configuration. To remove a specific IP address object, use the IPv4 Address parameter or IPv6 Address parameter. If you do not specify an IPv4 or IPv6 address, the cmdlet will remove all IP addresses that match.

Examples

Example 1: Remove an IP address

PS C:\>New-NetIPAddress -InterfaceIndex 12 -IPAddress 192.168.0.1


This command removes the IP address created by the previous command.
PS C:\>Remove-NetIPAddress -IPAddress 192.168.0.1

This command adds a new IP address.

Example 2: Remove an IP address using a pipeline

PS C:\>Get-NetIPAddress -IPAddress 192.168.0.1 | Remove-NetIPAddress

This command removes all of the IP addresses with the address 192.168.0.1.

Example 3: Remove IP addresses by prefix origin

PS C:\>Remove-NetIPAddress -PrefixOrigin Manual

This command removes all of the IP addresses that have a manually-configured prefix origin.

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies the input object that is used in a pipeline command.

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

Optional Parameters

-AddressFamily

Specifies an array of IP address families. The cmdlet removes the IP address that matches the families. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-- IPv4 -- IPv6

Type:AddressFamily[]
Parameter Sets:IPv4, IPv6
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-AddressState

Specifies an array of duplicate address detection (DAD) state values for the IP address. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-- Invalid. IP address configuration information for addresses that are not valid and will not be used. -- Tentative. IP address configuration information for addresses that are not used for communication, as the uniqueness of those IP addresses is being verified. -- Duplicate. IP address configuration information for addresses for which a duplicate IP address has been detected and the current IP address will not be used. -- Deprecated. IP address configuration information for addresses that will no longer be used to establish new connections, but will continue to be used with existing connections. -- Preferred. IP address configuration information for addresses that are valid and available for use.

Type:AddressState[]
Parameter Sets:Invalid, Tentative, Duplicate, Deprecated, Preferred
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-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[]
Aliases:Session
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
-DefaultGateway

Specifies the IPv4 address or IPv6 address of the default gateway for the host. Default gateways provide a default route for TCP/IP hosts to use when communicating with other hosts on remote networks.

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

Specifies an array of IPv4 or IPv6 addresses.

Type:String[]
Aliases:LocalAddress
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-IncludeAllCompartments

Indicates that the cmdlet includes addresses from all configured network compartments. If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet removes only addresses in the default network compartment.

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

Specifies an array of aliases of network interfaces. The cmdlet removes IP addresses that match the aliases.

Type:String[]
Aliases:ifAlias
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InterfaceIndex

Specifies an array of indexes of network interfaces. The cmdlet removes IP addresses that match the indexes.

Type:UInt32[]
Aliases:ifIndex
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PassThru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

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

Specifies a PolicyStore value. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-- ActiveStore. The IP address information is valid. -- PersistentStore. The computer saves IP address information across restarts. When the computer restarts, it copies the saved settings to the ActiveStore.

The default value is ActiveStore.

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

Specifies an array of values of preferred lifetimes, as TimeSpan objects, for an IP address. To obtain a TimeSpan object, use the New-TimeSpan cmdlet.

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

Specifies an array of prefix lengths. This parameter defines the local subnet size, and is also known as a subnet mask.

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

Specifies an array of origins of address prefixes. IP addresses are divided into two parts, the prefix and the suffix. The address prefix identifies the network portion of an IP address, and the address suffix identifies the host portion. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-- Manual. The IP address prefix was manually specified. -- WellKnown. The IP address prefix is from a well-known source. -- DHCP. The IP address prefix was provided by DHCP settings.

-- RouterAdvertisement. The IP address prefix was obtained through a router advertisement (RA).

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet.
