Updated: October 17, 2013

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows PowerShell 4.0, Windows Server 2012 R2

Unregister-SmisProvider

Removes a registered SMI-S provider.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Unregister1
Unregister-SmisProvider -ConnectionUri <Uri> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Unregister-SmisProvider removes a registered Storage Management Initiative - Specification (SMI-S) provider so that it cannot be used. When you remove a provider, you also delete any stored credentials and clear the credential cache for that provider. If a certificate was accepted from the provider, it will remain in the certificate store. It can be manually removed using the Certificates snap-in.

If the URI does not identify a registered provider, the cmdlet returns an error.

To obtain a list of SMI-S providers on the same subnet as a server, use the Search-SmisProvider cmdlet. This cmdlet returns a list of providers.

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.

The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
