Detailed Description

The Remove-NetIPAddress cmdlet removes an IP address and its configuration. To remove a specific IP address object, use the IPv4 Address parameter or IPv6 Address parameter. If you do not specify an IPv4 or IPv6 address, the cmdlet will remove all IP addresses that match.

Parameters

-AddressFamily<AddressFamily[]>

Specifies an array of IP address families. The cmdlet removes the IP address that matches the families. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- IPv4
-- IPv6

-AddressState<AddressState[]>

Specifies an array of duplicate address detection (DAD) state values for the IP address. The acceptable values for this parameter are: 

-- Invalid. IP address configuration information for addresses that are not valid and will not be used.
-- Tentative. IP address configuration information for addresses that are not used for communication, as the uniqueness of those IP addresses is being verified.
-- Duplicate. IP address configuration information for addresses for which a duplicate IP address has been detected and the current IP address will not be used.
-- Deprecated. IP address configuration information for addresses that will no longer be used to establish new connections, but will continue to be used with existing connections.
-- Preferred. IP address configuration information for addresses that are valid and available for use.

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Inputs

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

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_NetIPAddress

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.

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

  • None

Examples

Example 1: Remove an IP address

This command adds a new IP address.


 

PS C:\> New-NetIPAddress –InterfaceIndex 12 –IPAddress 192.168.0.1

 

This command removes the IP address created by the previous command.


PS C:\> Remove-NetIPAddress –IPAddress 192.168.0.1

Example 2: Remove an IP address using a pipeline

This command removes all of the IP addresses with the address 192.168.0.1.


PS C:\> Get-NetIPAddress –IPAddress 192.168.0.1 | Remove-NetIPAddress

Example 3: Remove IP addresses by prefix origin

This command removes all of the IP addresses that have a manually-configured prefix origin.
