Removes an SNMP manager on a local or remote computer.


  • Remove-SNMPManager [-Manager] [-ComputerName] [-Credential]


The Remove-SNMPManager cmdlet is used to remove SNMP managers configured on the local or a remote computer.


  • Manager Remove this SNMP manager.
  • ComputerName The computer against which to run the cmdlet. By default this parameter will be populated with the name of the local computer.
  • Credential The credentials under which to run the cmdlet. By default this cmdlet will run as the current user. Using this parameter and the Get-PSCredential cmdlet you can specify an alternate set of credentials under which to execute this command.


Remove-SNMPManager accepts output of the Get-SNMPManager cmdlet as an input object. In addition the Manager and ComputerName parameters each accept pipeline input by property name.


Remove-SNMPManager makes changes directly to Windows and does not output any Powershell objects.


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