Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope

Updated: January 9, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope

Deletes the IPv6 Scopes from the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server service corresponding to the specified prefixes.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Remove2
Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope [-Prefix] <IPAddress[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ComputerName <String> ] [-Force] [-Passthru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope cmdlet deletes the IPv6 Scopes from the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server service corresponding to the specified prefixes. Deleting a scope deletes all of the associated settings and leases, if any are present in the scope.

Parameters

-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.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

<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.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/DHCP/DhcpServerv6Scope

    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.


Outputs

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

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/DHCP/DhcpServerv6Scope[]

    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.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example deletes the specified DHCPv6 scope from the specified DHCP server service.


PS C:\> Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020::

EXAMPLE 2

This example deletes the specified DHCPv6 scope from the specified DHCP server service without requesting user confirmation even if the scope is active or contains active client leases.


PS C:\> Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -ComputerName dhcpserver.contoso.com -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020:: -Force

EXAMPLE 3

This example deletes all of the disabled scopes on the DHCP server service. The Get-DhcpServerv6Scope cmdlet returns the scope objects and pipes the objects into the Where-Object cmdlet. The Where-Object cmdlet filters the scope objects for the state being InActive (or disabled) and pipes the objects into this cmdlet, which deletes the disabled scopes passed through the pipeline. If non-empty scopes are deleted without the Force parameter, then the cmdlet displays an error. This cmdlet does not prompt for user confirmation. Active scopes that are empty get deleted without the Force parameter.


PS C:\> Get-DhcpServerv6Scope | Where-Object -FilterScript { $_.State -Eq "Inactive" } | Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -Force -Passthru
