Unregister-SmisProvider

Removes a registered SMI-S provider.

Syntax

Unregister-SmisProvider
          [-AsJob]
          [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
          -ConnectionUri <Uri>
          [-Force]
          [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
          [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Unregister-SmisProvider removes a registered Storage Management Initiative - Specification (SMI-S) provider so that it cannot be used. If you remove a provider, you also delete any stored credentials and clear the credential cache for that provider. If a certificate was accepted from the provider, it remains in the certificate store. It can be manually removed using the Certificates snap-in.

If the URI does not identify a registered provider, this cmdlet returns an error.

To obtain the SMI-S providers on the same subnet as a server, use the Search-SmisProvider cmdlet. This cmdlet returns a list of providers.

Examples

Example 1: Remove an SMI-S provider

PS C:\> Unregister-SmisProvider -ConnectionUri https://smis.contoso.com:5989

This command removes a registered SMI-S provider by using the URI of the provider.

Example 2: Remove an SMI-S provider by its object instance

PS C:\>Get-StorageProvider -Name "smis.contoso.com" | Unregister-SmisProvider

This command removes a registered SMI-S provider by using an existing storage provider instance and passing it to the Unregister-SmisProvider cmdlet, by using the pipeline operator.

Required Parameters

-ConnectionUri

Specifies the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of a registered provider. You must use the same URI as was used for the Register-SmisProvider cmdlet.

Type:Uri
Aliases:URI
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

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
-Force

{{Fill Force Description}}

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
