Removes a trusted application computer. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Remove-CsTrustedApplicationComputer -Identity <XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example removes the computer with the FQDN

Remove-CsTrustedApplicationComputer -Identity

This example removes all trusted computers that have FQDNs beginning with the string Trust. The example begins by calling the Get-CsTrustedApplicationComputer cmdlet, passing the Filter parameter the value Trust*. This will retrieve all trusted application computers with an FQDN beginning with Trust and ending with any set of characters. That collection of computers is then piped to the Remove-CsTrustedApplicationComputer cmdlet, which removes each item (each computer) in the collection. Keep in mind that this won’t remove the computers from a pool if removing those computers would result in an empty pool.

Get-CsTrustedApplicationComputer -Filter Trust* | Remove-CsTrustedApplicationComputer

It is recommended that the computers that are running trusted applications within a Skype for Business Server 2015 deployment be added to a separate pool that is only for trusted applications. However, you can add trusted application computers to an existing pool that is also used for other purposes. Use this cmdlet to remove a trusted application computer.

When you use this cmdlet to remove a trusted application computer, it will be removed not only from the list of trusted application computers but from the list of computers available on Skype for Business Server 2015. In other words, if you call the Get-CsTrustedApplicationComputer cmdlet or the Get-CsComputer cmdlet the computer will no longer be listed. You cannot remove a trusted application computer if it’s the only computer on the pool. If you want to remove the only computer on a pool you must remove the entire pool (which can be done by calling the Remove-CsTrustedApplicationPool cmdlet).
