Remove-DfsnFolderTarget

Removes a target for a DFS namespace folder.

Syntax

Parameter Set: RemoveNamespaceFolderTarget2
Remove-DfsnFolderTarget [-Path] <String> [-TargetPath] <String> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Force] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-DfsnFolderTarget cmdlet removes a target for a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace folder. A folder target is the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path of a shared folder or another namespace associated with a folder in a namespace. The folder target is where data and content is stored. This cmdlet deletes a target, but does not delete the contents of the folder target.

A DFS namespace folder can have more than one target. If you remove the last target associated with a DFS namespace folder, this cmdlet deletes the namespace folder as well. Users cannot use the DFS namespace folder after you delete it.

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.
