      [-JobGroup <Guid>]
      [-RunAsynchronously]
      [-PROTipID <Guid>]
      [-JobVariable <String>]

Description

The Remove-SCVMCheckpoint cmdlet removes a virtual machine checkpoint object from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) database.

Examples

Example 1: Remove the most recent checkpoint for a virtual machine

PS C:\> $Checkpoint = Get-SCVMCheckpoint -VM "VM01" -MostRecent
PS C:\> Remove-SCVMCheckpoint -VMCheckpoint $Checkpoint -Confirm

The first command gets all checkpoint objects for VM01 and stores these objects in the $Checkpoints object array. This example assumes that VM01 has several checkpoints.

The second command removes the first checkpoint in the array ($Checkpoints[0]). The Confirm parameter prompts you to confirm whether you want to remove the checkpoint.

Example 2: Remove a specified checkpoint for a virtual machine

PS C:\> $Checkpoints = Get-SCVMCheckpoint -VM "VM01" 
PS C:\> Remove-SCVMCheckpoint -VMCheckpoint $Checkpoints[0] -Confirm

The first command gets all checkpoint objects for VM01 and stores the objects in the $Checkpoints object array. This example assumes that VM01 has at least two checkpoints.

The second command removes the first checkpoint stored inthe $Checkpoints array, which is the first checkpoint created for VM01. The command prompts you for confirmation before proceeding.
