Notes

  • Requires a VMM computer configuration object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCComputerConfiguration cmdlet.

Examples

1: Remove a specific computer configuration from the VMM database.

The first command gets the computer configuration object named P2VSource01.Contoso.com from the VMM database and stores the object in the $ComputerConfig variable.

The second command removes the machine configuration object for P2VSource01.Contoso.com from the VMM database by using the -Force parameter.


PS C:\> $ComputerConfig = Get-SCComputerConfiguration | where { $_.Name -eq "P2VSource01.Contoso.com" }PS C:\> Remove-SCComputerConfiguration -ComputerConfiguration $ComputerConfig -Force

2: Remove a P2V agent from a specific source computer.

The first command uses Get-Credential to prompt you to supply a user name and password and stores your credentials in $Credential. The required credentials for this operation are either a local Administrator account or a domain account with administrator rights on the computer from which you want to gather information.

The command gets the computer configuration object named P2VSource01.Contoso.com and stores the object in the $ComputerConfig variable.

The last command removes the P2V agent from P2VSource01.Contoso.com.


PS C:\> $Credential = Get-CredentialPS C:\> $ComputerConfig = Get-SCComputerConfiguration | where { $_.Name -eq "P2VSource01.Contoso.com" }PS C:\> Remove-SCComputerConfiguration -ComputerConfiguration $ComputerConfig -Credential $Credential
