Remove-SPScaleOutDatabase -Database <SPDatabasePipeBind> -ServiceApplication <SPServiceApplicationPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DeleteData <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Use the Remove-SPScaleOutDatabase cmdlet to remove a specific scale-out database from a specified service application.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Database

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPDatabasePipeBind

Specifies the scale-out database to remove.

ServiceApplication

Required

Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPServiceApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the service application of the scale-out database to remove.

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

DeleteData

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Specifies whether to delete data when the scale out database is removed.

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
