Detailed Description

The Remove-DnsServerResourceRecord removes resource record objects from a DNS zone.

You can either use the Get-DnsServerResourceRecord cmdlet to specify an object, or you can specify the RRtype, Name and RecordData of the resource record you want to remove. If you specify an RRtype or name and there are multiple resource records, you can specify the RecordData to delete a specific record. If you do not specify RecordData, the cmdlet deletes all records that match RRtype and Name for the specified zone.

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.
