Removes the replication relationship of a virtual machine.

Syntax

Parameter Set: VMName
Remove-VMReplication [-VMName] <String[]> [-ComputerName <String[]> ] [-PassThru] [-ReplicationRelationshipType <VMReplicationRelationshipType> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: VMObject
Remove-VMReplication [-VM] <VirtualMachine[]> [-PassThru] [-ReplicationRelationshipType <VMReplicationRelationshipType> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: VMReplication
Remove-VMReplication [-VMReplication] <VMReplication[]> [-PassThru] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-VMReplication removes the replication relationship of a virtual machine. Replication must be removed independently from both the primary and Replica virtual machines. Removing replication on a Replica virtual machine does not delete the Replica virtual machine.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String[]>

Specifies one or more Hyper-V hosts on which the replication relationship of a virtual machine is to be removed. NetBIOS names, IP addresses, and fully-qualified domain names are allowable. The default is the local computer — use “localhost” or a dot (“.”) to specify the local computer explicitly.

Examples

Example 1

This example removes the replication relationship of virtual machine VM01.


PS C:\> Remove-VMReplication VM01

Example 2

This example removes the replication relationships from all replica-enabled virtual machines on the local Hyper-V host.


PS C:\> Remove-VMReplication *
