Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope

Last Updated: 3/27/2017

SYNOPSIS

Deletes the IPv6 scopes from the DHCP server service corresponding to the specified prefixes.

SYNTAX

Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope [-Prefix] <IPAddress[]> [-Force] [-Passthru] [-ComputerName <String>]
 [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope cmdlet deletes the IPv6 scopes from the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server service corresponding to the specified prefixes. Deleting a scope deletes all of the associated settings and leases, if any are present in the scope.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Delete a scope

PS C:\> Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -ComputerName "dhcpserver.contoso.com" -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020::

This example deletes the specified DHCPv6 scope from the specified DHCP server service.

Example 2: Delete a scope even if it contains active leases

PS C:\> Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -ComputerName "dhcpserver.contoso.com" -Prefix 2001:4898:7020:1020:: -Force

This example deletes the specified DHCPv6 scope from the specified DHCP server service without requesting user confirmation even if the scope is active or contains active client leases.

Example 3: Delete all disabled scopes on the DHCP server service

PS C:\> Get-DhcpServerv6Scope | Where-Object -FilterScript { $_.State -Eq "Inactive" } | Remove-DhcpServerv6Scope -Force -Passthru

This example deletes all of the disabled scopes on the DHCP server service. The Get-DhcpServerv6Scope cmdlet returns the scope objects and pipes the objects into the Where-Object cmdlet. Where-Object filters the scope objects for the state being InActive (or disabled) and pipes the objects into this cmdlet, which deletes the disabled scopes passed through the pipeline. If non-empty scopes are deleted without the Force parameter, then the cmdlet displays an error. This cmdlet does not prompt for user confirmation. Active scopes that are empty are deleted without the Force parameter.

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.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

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

-ComputerName

Specifies the DNS name, or IPv4 or IPv6 address, of the target computer that runs the DHCP server service.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Cn

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

-Confirm

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Force

Specifies that this cmdlet deletes the scope even if there are active leases in the scope.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-Passthru

Returns an object representing the item with which you are working. By default, this cmdlet does not generate any output.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-Prefix

Specifies one or more IPv6 subnet prefixes of the scopes that are deleted.

Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 1
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.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

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

-WhatIf
