Delete a management resource instance.

Remove-WSManInstance [-ConnectionURI Uri] [[-SelectorSet] hashtable] [-AuthenticationMechanism AuthenticationMechanism] [-Credential PSCredential] [-OptionSet hashtable] [-ResourceURI Uri] [-SessionOption hashtable] [CommonParameters] Key -ApplicationName string The application name in the connection. The default Application Name is "WSMAN" The complete identifier for the remote endpoint is in the following format: transport://server:port/ApplicationName For example: http://server64:8080/WSMAN IIS will forward requests with this endpoint to the specified application. This default setting of "WSMAN" is appropriate for most uses. This parameter is designed to be used when numerous computers establish remote connections to one computer that is running PowerShell. In this case, IIS hosts Web Services for Management (WS-Management) for efficiency. -Authentication Authentication The authentication mechanism to be used at the server. Possible values are: - Basic Send username and password in clear text. - Default Use the authentication method implemented by WS-Management protocol. This is the default. - Digest Challenge-response scheme using a server-specified data string for the challenge. - Kerberos Authenticate by using Kerberos certificates. - Negotiate Challenge-response that negotiates an authentication scheme. e.g. Kerberos protocol or NTLM. - CredSSP Use Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) authentication, delegate credentials to a remote computer. This increases the security risk, if the remote computer is compromised, the credentials could be used to control the network session. -ComputerName string The computer against which you want to run the management operation. A fully qualified domain name, NetBIOS name, or an IP address. Use the local computer name, localhost, or a dot (.) to specify the local computer. The local computer is the default. When the remote computer is in a different domain, use a fully qualified domain name. You can pipe a value for ComputerName. -ConnectionURI Uri The connection endpoint. The format of this string is: Transport://Server:Port/ApplicationName. The following string is a properly formatted value for this parameter: http://Server01:8080/WSMAN. The URI must be fully qualified. -Credential PSCredential A user account that has permission to perform this action. default=current user. e.g. "User64", "Domain64\User64", or "". Or a PSCredential object, such as returned by the Get-Credential cmdlet. When you type a user name, you will be prompted for a password. -OptionSet hashtable Pass a set of switches to the service to modify or refine the nature of the request. These are similar to switches used in command-line shells in that they are service specific. Any number of options can be specified. The following example demonstrates the syntax that passes the values 1, 2, and 3 for the a, b, and c parameters: -OptionSet @{a=1;b=2;c=3} -Port int The port to use when the client connects to the WinRM service. When the transport is HTTP, the default port is 80. When the transport is HTTPS, the default port is 443. When you use HTTPS as the transport, the value of the -ComputerName parameter must match the server's certificate common name (CN). However, if the SkipCNCheck parameter is specified as part of the SessionOption parameter, then the certificate common name of the server does not have to match the host name of the server. The SkipCNCheck parameter should be used only for trusted computers. -ResourceURI Uri The Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the resource class or instance. The URI is used to identify a specific type of resource, such as disks or processes, on a computer. A URI consists of a prefix and a path to a resource. For example: -SelectorSet hashtable A set of value pairs that are used to select particular management resource instances. The SelectorSet parameter is used when more than one instance of the resource exists. The value of the SelectorSet parameter must be a hash table. The following example shows how to enter a value for this parameter: -SelectorSet @{Name="WinRM";ID="yyy"} -SessionOption hashtable Define a set of extended options for the WS-Management session. Enter a SessionOption object that you create by using New-WSManSessionOption. -UseSSL Use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to establish a connection to the remote computer. By default, SSL is not used. WS-Management encrypts all PowerShell content that is transmitted over the network. The UseSSL parameter lets you specify the additional protection of HTTPS instead of HTTP. This will fail if SSL is not available on the port that is used for the connection.

Remove-WSManInstance deletes an instance of a management resource that is specified in the -ResourceURI and -SelectorSet parameters.
This cmdlet uses the WinRM connection/transport layer to delete the management resource instance.
