Remove-SCVirtualScsiAdapter

Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

Remove-SCVirtualScsiAdapter

Removes a virtual SCSI adapter object from VMM.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Remove-SCVirtualScsiAdapter [-VirtualScsiAdapter] <VirtualSCSIAdapter> [-JobGroup <Guid> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-SCVirtualScsiAdapter cmdlet removes one or more virtual SCSI adapter objects from a virtual machine, virtual machine template, or hardware profile used in a Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) environment.

The Remove-SCVirtualSCSIAdapter cmdlet removes a virtual SCSI adapter successfully only if the adapter does not have any devices attached to it.

A virtual machine on a Citrix XenServer host always has one virtual SCSI adapter. You cannot remove this adapter.

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

Parameters

-JobGroup<Guid>

Specifies an identifier for a series of commands that will run as a set just before the final command that includes the same job group identifier runs.

-VirtualScsiAdapter<VirtualSCSIAdapter>

Specifies a virtual SCSI adapter object for a virtual machine. The types of host and number of virtual SCSI adapters are:

Hyper-V: Up to four synthetic virtual SCSI adapters per VM, and up to 64 devices per adapter. Supports a virtual disk drive size up to 2040 GB. Does not support emulated virtual SCSI adapters.

VMware ESX: Up to four virtual SCSI adapters per VM, and up to 15 devices per adapter. Supports a virtual disk drive size up to 2048 GB.

Citrix XenServer: Always one virtual SCSI adapter per VM, and up to eight devices per adapter. Supports a virtual disk drive size up to 2048 GB.

<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.

Outputs

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

Notes

  • This cmdlet requires a VMM virtual SCSI adapter object, which can be retrieved by using the Get-VirtualSCSIAdapter cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Remove the third virtual SCSI adapter from a virtual machine

The first command gets the virtual machine object named VM01, and then stores the object in the $VM variable.

The second command gets all virtual SCSI adapter objects on VM01, and then stores the objects in the $Adapter object array. A virtual machine can have up to four virtual SCSI adapters attached. This example assumes that VM01 has at least three virtual SCSI adapters.

The last command passes the third virtual SCSI adapter, $Adapter[2], to Remove-SCVirtualScsiAdapter, which removes this virtual SCSI adapter from VM01.


PS C:\> $VM = Get-SCVirtualMachine -Name "VM01"
PS C:\> $Adapter = Get-SCVirtualSCSIAdapter -VM $VM
PS C:\> $Adapter[2] | Remove-SCVirtualScsiAdapter
