Syntax

Remove-SCVMHostGroup
      [-VMHostGroup] <HostGroup>
      [-RunAsynchronously]
      [-PROTipID <Guid>]
      [-JobVariable <String>]
      [-WhatIf]
      [-Confirm]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Remove-SCVMHostGroup cmdlet removes one or more host group objects from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) database. A host group cannot be deleted if it is associated with a private cloud, if it has hosts assigned to it, or if its child host group has hosts assigned to it. This cmdlet will delete child host groups if the host group and its child host groups do not contain any virtual machine hosts.

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

Examples

Example 1: Remove the specified host group

PS C:\> $HostGroup = Get-SCVMHostGroup -Name "HostGroup02"
PS C:\> Remove-SCVMHostGroup -VMHostGroup $HostGroup

The first command gets the host group named HostGroup02 and stores it in the $HostGroup variable.

The second command removes the host group object stored in the $HostGroup variable.
