Removes an instance of the distributed cache service from a local server.
Remove-SPDistributedCacheServiceInstance [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]
Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.
Use the Remove-SPDistributedCacheServiceInstance cmdlet to remove an instance of the distributed cache service from a local server. This is required to stop the AppFabric service.
This example removes an instance of a distributed cache.
