Remove-DfsnRoot

Removes a DFS namespace.

Syntax

Parameter Set: RemoveNamespace0
Remove-DfsnRoot [-Path] <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Force] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-DfsnRoot cmdlet removes a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace. When you remove a namespace, you remove all the folders in the namespace. Users cannot use the DFS namespace folders after you remove the namespace. This cmdlet does not delete the folders specified by DFS namespace targets or the files in those folders.

For more information about DFS namespaces, see Overview of DFS Namespaces (http://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc730736) on TechNet.

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.
