Remove-DfsReplicatedFolder

Removes a replicated folder from a replication group.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Remove-DfsReplicatedFolder [-GroupName] <String[]> [-FolderName] <String[]> [[-Force]] [[-DomainName] <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-DfsReplicatedFolder cmdlet removes replicated folders from a replication group. Replicated folders are logical arrangements of replication that do not contain computer-specific settings.

When you remove a replicated folder, the DFS Replication (DSFR) service cannot replicate the folder. This operation does not delete any replicated file data. Use this cmdlet only when you decommission a replicated folder.

Parameters

-DomainName<String>

Specifies the NetBIOS name or fully qualified domain name (FQDN) for the Active Directory Domain Service (AD DS) domain that contains the replication group. If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet uses the domain of the current user.
