Description

The Remove-WdsDriverPackage cmdlet removes a driver package from a driver group or removes a driver package from all driver groups and deletes it from the Windows Deployment Services driver store. Specify a driver package by its unique name or ID.

To remove a driver package from a driver group, specify the name of the group. A client must have access to at least one group that a driver package belongs to in order to install it.

To remove a driver package from all groups and delete if from the driver store, specify the RemoveFiles parameter. Use the Import-WdsDriverPackage cmdlet to import drivers into the driver store.

Example 3: Remove a driver package from all groups by using the package ID

PS C:\>Remove-WdsDriverPackage -Id 32d78628-07fb-4e18-adc4-f0ecf8b41bbe -RemoveFiles

This command removes the driver package that has the specified ID from all groups and deletes it from the driver store.

Example 4: Remove a named driver package from all groups

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
-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
