Remove-RemoteAccessLoadBalancerNode

Last Updated: 4/3/2017

SYNOPSIS

Removes a server from the network load balancing (NLB) cluster.

SYNTAX

Remove-RemoteAccessLoadBalancerNode [-RemoteAccessServer] <String> [-ComputerName <String>] [-PassThru]
 [-Force] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Remove-RemoteAccessLoadBalancerNode cmdlet removes a server from the network load balancing (NLB) cluster.

When a server is removed, DirectAccess (DA) and VPN configuration settings on it are also removed.

When the last server from a cluster is removed, the DA and VPN configuration on it is not removed.

A server can be removed from the NLB cluster even if it is not reachable.

When VPN and DA configuration are cleared the Remote Access role is not uninstalled automatically.

EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Remove-RemoteAccessLoadBalancerNode -RemoteAccessServer edge3.corp.contoso.com -ComputerName edge2.corp.contoso.com
Confirm 
Removing server edge3 from the load balanced cluster will reduce cluster capacity and availability. Do you want to remove the server? 

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

In case edge3 is not a part of the NLB cluster that contains edge2, this cmdlet returns with the following message.
PS C:\>
Remove-RemoteAccessLoadBalancerNode: Server edge3 is not a part of a remote access server cluster

This example removes a server from an NLB Node.
