This cmdlet contains more than one parameter set. You may only use parameters from one parameter set, and you may not combine parameters from different parameter sets. For more information about how to use parameter sets, see Cmdlet Parameter Sets.

The Uninstall-SPSolution cmdlet retracts a deployed SharePoint solution in preparation for removing it from the farm entirely. This cmdlet removes files from the front-end Web server. Use the Remove-SPSolution cmdlet to delete the solution package from the solution store of the farm; be sure to use the Remove-SPSolution cmdlet only after you have run Uninstall-SPSolution.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPSolutionPipeBind

Specifies the SharePoint solution to uninstall.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a SharePoint solution (for example, SPSolution1); or an instance of a valid SPSolution object.

AllWebApplications

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Specifies that the new SharePoint solution will be uninstalled for all SharePoint Web applications in the farm.

WebApplication

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPWebApplicationPipeBind

Uninstalls the SharePoint solution for the specified SharePoint Web application.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; or a valid name of a SharePoint Web application (for example, MyOfficeApp1); or an instance of a valid SPWebApplication object.

AssignmentCollection

Optional

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.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.

noteNote
When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Language

Optional

System.UInt32

Uninstalls the language pack for the specified language.

The type must be a valid language identifier; for example, 1033.

Local

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Uninstalls the solution from the active server computer.

Time

Optional

System.String

Specifies when the solution will be uninstalled. The default value is immediate retraction.

The type must be a valid DateTime value, in the form 2010,12,05.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Displays a message that describes the effect of the command instead of executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters
