Remove-SCVirtualFloppyDisk

Updated: September 27, 2012

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager

Remove-SCVirtualFloppyDisk

Removes a virtual floppy disk object from VMM.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Remove-SCVirtualFloppyDisk [-VirtualFloppyDisk] <VirtualFloppyDisk> [-Force] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-SCVirtualFloppyDisk cmdlet removes a virtual floppy disk object from the System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library and deletes the corresponding virtual floppy disk file (a Windows-based .vfd file or a VMware-based .flp file) from the library server.

If the virtual floppy disk is attached to a virtual machine, template, or hardware profile (and if you do not use the Force parameter), VMM lists the container that contains the virtual floppy disk and prompts you to confirm that you want to remove the virtual floppy disk:

- If you reply Yes, VMM removes the association between the virtual

floppy disk and the container to which it is attached, and then

deletes the virtual floppy disk object from VMM.

- If you reply No, the operation is cancelled.

This cmdlet returns the object upon success (with the property MarkedForDeletion set to TRUE) or returns an error message upon failure.

Parameters

-Force

Forces the operation to complete.

For example:

- Remove-SCSCVMHost -Force

Forces the removal of a host object from the VMM database.

- Stop-SCVirtualMachine -Force

Stops a virtual machine.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

Notes

  • Requires a Virtual Machine Manager virtual floppy disk object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk cmdlet.

Examples

1: Remove a virtual floppy disk object from the library and delete the corresponding file.

The first command gets the virtual floppy disk file object named BootFloppy.vfd stored on LibraryServer01, and then stores the virtual floppy disk object in the $VFD variable.

The second command removes the floppy disk object stored in $VFD from the library and deletes the corresponding virtual floppy disk file from the library server.


PS C:\> $VFD = Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com"  | where { $_.Name -eq "BootFloppy.vfd" -and $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }PS C:\> Remove-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VirtualFloppyDisk $VFD

2: Remove multiple virtual floppy disks and their files.

The first command gets all virtual floppy disk objects whose names include the string "Boot" and stores these objects in the array named $VFDs.

The second command passes each virtual floppy disk object in $VFDs to the Remove-VirtualFloppyDisk cmdlet, which removes each virtual floppy disk object from the library. The command also deletes each corresponding file from the library server on which that virtual floppy disk is stored.


PS C:\> $VFDs = Get-SCVirtualFloppyDisk -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -match "Boot" }PS C:\> $VFDs | Remove-SCVirtualFloppyDisk
