Description

The Remove-NetworkSwitchVlan cmdlet removes virtual local area networks (VLANs) from a network switch.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a VLAN that has a specified ID

PS C:\>$Session = New-CimSession -ComputerName "NetworkSwitch08"
PS C:\> Remove-NetworkSwitchVlan -CimSession $Session -VlanID 2

The first command creates a CimSession for a network switch, and then stores it in the $Session variable. For more information about CimSession objects, type Get-Help New-CimSession.

The second command removes the VLAN that has a VLAN ID of 2 for the switch NetworkSwitch08 by using the $Session object.

Example 2: Remove a VLAN for a specified instance ID

PS C:\>Remove-NetworkSwitchVlan -CimSession $Session -InstanceID "Contoso:NetworkVLAN:Vlan4"

This command removes the VLAN for the specified instance ID. The command includes a CimSession, similar to the first example.

Example 3: Remove VLANs that have names that contain a string

PS C:\>Remove-NetworkSwitchVlan -CimSession $Session -Name "*Contoso*"

This command removes all VLANs that have friendly names that include the string Contoso. The command includes a CimSession, similar to the first example.
