Remove-SCISO

Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Remove-SCISO

Removes an ISO file from the VMM library.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Remove-SCISO [-ISO] <ISO> [-Force] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-SCISO cmdlet removes an ISO file from the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) library and deletes the ISO file on the library server.

If the ISO is attached to a virtual machine, template, or hardware profile, and if you do not use the Force parameter, VMM lists the container that includes the ISO and prompts you to confirm that you want to remove the ISO:

-- If you reply Yes, VMM removes the association between the ISO and the container to which it is attached, and then deletes the ISO object from VMM.

-- If you reply No, the operation is cancelled.

This cmdlet returns the object upon success, with the property MarkedForDeletion set to TRUE, or returns an error message upon failure.

Parameters

-Force

Forces the operation to complete.

For example:

- Remove-SCSCVMHost -Force

Forces the removal of a host object from the VMM database.

- Stop-SCVirtualMachine -Force

Stops a virtual machine.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

Outputs

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

Notes

  • This cmdlet requires a VMM ISO object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-SCISO cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Remove an ISO object and delete the corresponding file

The first command gets the ISO object named OsISO.iso from LibraryServer01, and then stores the ISO object in the $ISO variable.

The second command removes the ISO object from the library and deletes the corresponding .iso file from the file system on the library server.


PS C:\> $ISO = Get-SCISO -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -eq "OsISO.iso" -and $_.LibraryServer.Name -eq "LibraryServer01.Contoso.com" }
PS C:\> Remove-SCISO -ISO $ISO

Example 2: Remove multiple ISO objects from the library

The first command gets all ISO objects whose name includes the string OsISO, and then stores these ISO objects in the $ISOs variable.

The second command passes each ISO object in $ISOs to the Remove-SCISO cmdlet. That cmdlet removes each ISO object from the library and deletes the corresponding .iso file from the file system on the library server.


PS C:\> $ISOs = Get-SCISO -VMMServer "VMMServer01.Contoso.com" | where { $_.Name -match "OsISO" }
PS C:\> $ISOs | Remove-SCISO
