Remove-ADAuthenticationPolicy

Removes an Active Directory Domain Services authentication policy object.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Remove-ADAuthenticationPolicy [-Identity] <ADAuthenticationPolicy> [-AuthType <ADAuthType> {Negotiate | Basic} ] [-Credential <PSCredential> ] [-Server <String> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-ADAuthenticationPolicy cmdlet removes an Active Directory® Domain Services authentication policy.

The Identity parameter specifies the Active Directory Domain Services authentication policy to remove. You can identify an authentication policy by its distinguished name (DN), GUID or name. You can also use the Identity parameter to specify a variable that contains an authentication policy object, or you can use the pipeline operator to pass an authentication policy object to the Identity parameter.

Parameters

-AuthType<ADAuthType>

Specifies the authentication method to use. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- Negotiate or 0
-- Basic or 1

The default authentication method is Negotiate. A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection is required for the Basic authentication method.

-Credential<PSCredential>

Specifies a user account that has permission to perform the task. The default is the current user. Type a user name, such as User01 or Domain01\User01, or enter a PSCredential object, such as one generated by the Get-Credential cmdlet.

By default, the cmdlet uses the credentials of the currently logged on user unless the cmdlet is run from an Active Directory Domain ServicesWindows PowerShell provider drive. If you run the cmdlet in a provider drive, the account associated with the drive is the default.

If you specify credentials that do not have permission to perform the task, the cmdlet returns an error.

-Identity<ADAuthenticationPolicy>

Specifies an Active Directory Domain Services authentication policy object. Specify the authentication policy object in one of the following formats:

-- Distinguished Name
-- GUID
-- Name

This parameter can also get this object through the pipeline or you can set this parameter to an object instance.

The cmdlet searches the default naming context or partition to find the object. If the cmdlet finds two or more objects, the cmdlet returns a non-terminating error.

-Server<String>

Specifies the Active Directory Domain Services instance to which to connect, by providing one of the following values for a corresponding domain name or directory server. The service may be any of the following: Active Directory Lightweight Domain Services, Active Directory Domain Services or Active Directory Snapshot instance.

Specify the Active Directory Domain Services instance in one of the following ways:

-- Domain name values:

---- Fully qualified domain name
---- NetBIOS name

-- Directory server values:

---- Fully qualified directory server name
---- NetBIOS name
---- Fully qualified directory server name and port

The default value for this parameter is determined by one of the following methods in the order that they are listed:

-- By using the Server value from objects passed through the pipeline
-- By using the server information associated with the Active Directory Domain ServicesWindows PowerShell provider drive, when the cmdlet runs in that drive
-- By using the domain of the computer running Windows PowerShell

Examples

Example 1: Remove an authentication policy by specifying a name

This command removes the authentication policy specified by the Identity parameter.


PS C:\> Remove-ADAuthenticationPolicy -Identity AuthenticationPolicy01

Example 2: Remove multiple authentication policies

This command uses the Get-ADAuthenticationPolicy cmdlet with the Filter parameter to get all authentication policies that are not enforced. The pipeline operator then passes the result of the filter to the Remove-ADAuthenticationPolicy cmdlet.


PS C:\> Get-ADAuthenticationPolicy -Filter 'Enforce -eq $false' | Remove-ADAuthenticationPolicy
