Description

The Remove-NetIPAddress cmdlet deletes IP address and the configuration properties of that IP address. To remove a specific IP address object, be sure to use the IPv4 Address parameter or IPv6 Address parameter. Other parameters will remove all IP addresses with the matching property.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

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


The remove cmdlet then removes it.
PS C:\>Remove-NetIPAddress -IPAddress 192.168.0.1

This example adds a new IP address.

EXAMPLE 2

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

This example provides an alternative method to EXAMPLE 1 that removes all of the IP addresses that have an IP address of 192.168.0.1.

EXAMPLE 3

PS C:\>Remove-NetIPAddress -PrefixOrigin Manual

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

Required Parameters

-InputObject

Specifies the input to this cmdlet. You can use this parameter, or you can pipe the input to this cmdlet.

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

Optional Parameters

-AddressFamily

Removes all IP addresses that have a specific IP address family. A read-only property. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

-AddressState

Removes all the IP addresses that have a specific duplicate address detection (DAD) state for an IPv4 and IPv6 address. A read-only property. 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.

ps_cimcommon_asjob

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-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227967 or Get-CimSessionhttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=227966 cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type:SwitchParameter
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 to use. 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

Removes all of the IP addresses that have a specific IPv4 or IPv6 address.

Type:String[]
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-InterfaceAlias

Removes all of the IP addresses that have a specific interface, as defined by the InterfaceAlias.

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

Removes all of the IP addresses that have a specific interface, as defined by the InterfaceIndex number.

Type:UInt32[]
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

Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PolicyStore

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

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-PrefixOrigin

Gets the IP address information for IP addresses that have a specific prefix origin. IP addresses are divided into two parts, the prefix and the suffix.
