Remove-DfsnRootTarget

Removes a target for a DFS namespace root.

Syntax

Parameter Set: RemoveNamespaceRootTarget2
Remove-DfsnRootTarget [-TargetPath] <String> [[-Cleanup]] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Path <String> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Remove-DfsnRootTarget cmdlet removes a target for a Distributed File System (DFS) namespace root. 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 root can have more than one root target. If you remove the last root target associated with a DFS namespace root, this cmdlet deletes the namespace as well. Users cannot use the DFS namespace path after you delete the namespace.

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.
