Detailed Description

The Remove-SCVirtualizationManager cmdlet removes one or more VMware vCenter Server objects from System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). This cmdlet deletes the vCenter Server object from the Virtual Machine Manager database and also removes all imported ESX host objects and virtual machine objects associated with the vCenter Server.

Examples

1: Remove a VMware vCenter Server from VMM.

The first command gets the virtualization manager object named VirtMgrServer01 from VMMServer01 and stores the object in the $VirtMgrServer variable.

The second command removes the vCenter Server object, as well as all associated host and virtual machine objects, from VMM.


PS C:\> $VirtMgrServer = Get-SCVirtualizationManager -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" -ComputerName "VirtMgrServer01.Contoso.com"PS C:\> Remove-SCVirtualizationManager -VirtualizationManager $VirtMgrServer

2: Remove a set of VMware vCenter Servers from VMM.

The first command gets all virtualization manager objects whose name includes the string "Server" and stores the objects in $VirtManagers.

The second command removes each object in $VirtManagers from VMM, as well as all associated host and virtual machine objects.

PS C:\> $VirtManagers = Get-SCVirtualizationManager -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -match "Server" }PS C:\> ForEach ($VirtManager in $VirtManagers) {Remove-SCVirtualizationManager -VirtualizationManager $VirtManager}

3: Remove all VMware vCenter Servers from VMM.
