Removes networks from a hosting unit.


Remove-HypHostingUnitNetwork [-LiteralPath] <String> [-NetworkPath] <String> [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-TraceParent <String>] [-TraceState <String>] [-VirtualSiteId <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]


Detailed Description

Use this command to remove networks from a hosting unit. This does not remove the network from the hypervisor, only the reference to the network for the Host Service. After it is removed, the network is no longer available for associating with virtual NICs (when creating new virtual machines with the Machine Creation Service). Any virtual machines that have been created already continue to use the network until they are removed from the deployment. This command cannot be used if the connection for the hosting unit is in maintenance mode. If the network to be removed no longer exists on the hypervisor for the hosting unit, you must supply a fully qualified path to the network location.

BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false  
TraceParent Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false  
TraceState Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false  
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false  
AdminAddress Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller that the PowerShell snap-in connects to. This can be a host name or an IP address. false false LocalHost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value becomes the default.
