Removes a guest operating system profile object from VMM.

Syntax

Remove-SCGuestOSProfile
      [-GuestOSProfile] <GuestOSProfile>
      [-Force]
      [-RunAsynchronously]
      [-PROTipID <Guid>]
      [-JobVariable <String>]
      [-WhatIf]
      [-Confirm]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-SCGuestOSProfile cmdlet removes one or more guest operating system profile objects from the VMM library.

This cmdlet returns the object upon success (with the property MarkedForDeletion set to True) or returns an error message upon failure.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a specific guest operating system profile from the library

PS C:\> $OSProfile = Get-SCGuestOSProfile -Name "NewOSProfile01"
PS C:\> Remove-SCGuestOSProfile -GuestOSProfile $OSProfile -Confirm

The first command gets the guest operating system profile object named NewOSProfile01 and stores the object in the $OSProfile variable.

The second command removes the guest operating system profile stored in $OSProfile, prompting for confirmation before completing the operation.

Example 2: Remove all operating system profiles without being prompted to confirm each deletion

PS C:\> $OSProfiles = Get-SCGuestOSProfile -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> $OSProfiles | Remove-SCGuestOSProfile

The first command gets all operating system profile objects from VMMServer01 and stores the objects in the $OSProfiles object array.

The second command passes each object in $OSProfiles to the Remove-OSProfile cmdlet, which removes each of the guest operating system profile objects from the VMM library.
