SYNOPSIS

Removes a set of addresses from IPAM.

SYNTAX

ByAddress

Remove-IpamAddress [-IpAddress] <IPAddress[]> [[-ManagedByService] <String[]>] [[-ServiceInstance] <String[]>]
 [-NetworkType <VirtualizationType[]>] [-AddressSpace <String[]>] [-Force] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
 [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-PassThru] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

InputObject (cdxml)

Remove-IpamAddress -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-Force] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
 [-AsJob] [-PassThru] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Remove-IpamAddress cmdlet removes a set of addresses from IP Address Management (IPAM). The cmdlet removes the specified IP address records permanently from the IPAM database. Specify the IP addresses to remove or use the InputObject parameter to specify an IpamAddress object to remove.

The cmdlet does not remove any reservations on the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server or Domain Name System (DNS) records. You can use Windows PowerShell for DHCP Server to remove a reservation from the DCHP server. You can use Windows PowerShell for DNS to remove the DNS records associated with the IP addresses that you remove.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Remove all IP addresses in range

PS C:\> $Range = Get-IpamRange -StartIPAddress 10.12.3.1 -EndIPAddress 10.12.3.254
PS C:\> Get-IpamAddress -MappingToRange $Range | Remove-IpamAddress
Confirm

Deleting the given IP Address from IPAM database. You will not be able to undo this action. Do you want to continue?

[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"):

This example removes all IP addresses in a range.

The first command uses the Get-IpamRange cmdlet to get an IpamRange object that contains the addresses that belong to a range of IP addresses. The command stores the object in the $Range variable.

The second command uses the Get-IpamAddress cmdlet to get an IpamAddress object that contains the IP addresses that map to the range stored in the $Range variable. The command passes the IpamAddress object to the Remove-IpamAddress cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The command removes the addresses in the range stored in the $Range variable.

Example 2: Remove all expired physical addresses managed by IPAM

PS C:\> Get-IpamAddress -AddressFamily IPv4 -AddressCategory Private -ManagedByService IPAM | Where-Object {$_.ExpiryStatus -eq "Expired"} | Remove-IpamAddress

This command gets an IpamAddress object that contains the physical addresses managed by IPAM that have expired. The command passes the IpamAddress object to the Remove-IpamAddress cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The Remove-IpamAddress cmdlet removes the IpamAddress object.

Example 3: Remove a customer IP address

PS C:\> Remove-IpamAddress -IpAddress 172.16.10.16 -AddressSpace "Default"

This command removes the customer IP address 172.16.10.16 from the default address space.

Example 4: Remove a provider IP address

PS C:\> Remove-IpamAddress -IpAddress 172.16.10.19 -AddressSpace "Default" -NetworkType Provider

This command removes the provider IP address 172.16.10.19 from the default address space.

PARAMETERS

-AddressSpace

Specifies an array of address spaces. The cmdlet removes the addresses that belong to the address spaces that you specify. If you specify this parameter, you must specify the IpAddress parameter.

Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: ByAddress
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-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.

Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 1
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ManagedByService

Specifies an array of services that manage the IP addresses that you specify in the IpAddress parameter. If you specify this parameter, you must specify the IpAddress parameter.

The values that you specify for this parameter must exist in the set of values that you defined for the ManagedByService custom field in IPAM.

Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: ByAddress
Aliases: MB

Required: False
Position: 2
Default value: None

-NetworkType

Specifies the network type of the address. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • Provider
  • Customer
  • NonVirtualized

The default value is NonVirtualized.

If you specify Default for the AddressSpace parameter, the valid values for this parameter are Provider and NonVirtualized. If you specify a provider type of address space for the AddressSpace parameter, you must specify Provider for this parameter. If you specify a customer type of address space for the AddressSpace parameter, you must specify Customer for this parameter.

Type: VirtualizationType[]

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ServiceInstance

Specifies an array of instances of the services that manage the IP addresses. Specify the instances of the services that you specified for the ManagedByService parameter. If you specify this parameter, you must specify the IpAddress parameter. The value that you specify for this parameter must exist in the set of values that you defined for the ServiceInstance custom field in IPAM.

Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.
