Syntax

Remove-SCPXEServer
      [-VMMServer <ServerConnection>]
      [-PXEServer] <PxeServer>
      -Credential <VMMCredential>
      [-Force]
      [-RunAsynchronously]
      [-PROTipID <Guid>]
      [-JobVariable <String>]
      [-WhatIf]
      [-Confirm]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-SCPXEServer cmdlet removes a PXEServer object from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) database, and uninstalls the VMM agent from the Windows Deployment Services computer. This cmdlet does not remove the Windows Deployment Services role from the computer.

Examples

Example 1: Remove a VMM PXE server

PS C:\> $Credential = Get-SCRunAsAccount "RunAsAcct01"
PS C:\> $PXEServer = Get-SCPXEServer -ComputerName "WDSServer01.Contoso.com"
PS C:\> Remove-SCPXEServer -PXEServer $PXEServer -Credential $Credential -Confirm

The first command uses the Get-Credential cmdlet to prompt you to supply a user name and password and stores the provided credentials in the $Credential variable. The account must have local Administrator permissions on the PXE server.

The second command gbets the PXE server object named WDSServer01 and stores the object in the $PXEServer variable.

The third command removes the PXE server object stored in $PXEServer. As this command is processed, $Credential provides credentials to Remove-SCPXEServer, and the Confirm parameter prompts you to confirm that you want to remove this PXE server from VMM.

Required Parameters

-Credential

Specifies a credential object or, for some cmdlets, a Run As account object that contains the user name and password of an account that has permission to perform this action. Or, in the case of Restart-SCJob, has permission to complete a restarted task.

For more information about the PSCredential object, type Get-Help Get-Credential. For more information about Run As accounts, type Get-Help New-SCRunAsAccount.
