Notes

The Remove-NetworkAdapterIPAddress cmdlet requires that the Remote Registry and RPC services are started on the computer it is trying to access and that DNS services are available to resolve target host names.

Example 1

This command will remove the IP address 192.168.0.44 from the configuration of adapter "Local Area Connection" on the local computer:

C:\PS>Remove-NetworkAdapterIPAddress "Local Area Connection" -IPAddress 192.168.0.44

Example 2

This command will remove the IP address 192.168.0.44 from the configuration of adapter "Local Area Connection" on the remote computer PC01:

C:\PS>Remove-NetworkAdapterIPAddress "Local Area Connection" -IPAddress 192.168.0.44

Example 3

Remove-NetworkAdapterIPAddress can also be used in conjunction with the Get-NetworkAdapter cmdlet. In this example Get-NetworkAdapter fetches the adapter "Local Area Connection" on the remote computer PC01 and Remove-NetworkAdapterIPAddress removes the IP address 192.168.1.44 from the configuration of the adapter.

C:\PS>Get-NetworkAdapter "Local Area Connection" -Computer PC01 | Remove-NetworkAdapterIPAddress 192.168.0.44
