Optional Parameters

-ComputerName

The target computer. Defaults to localhost.

Alias
Required False

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-CollectorSet

The name of the Collector Set to remove.

Alias DataCollectorSet
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-InputObject

Accepts the object output by Get-DbaPfDataCollectorSet via the pipeline.

Alias

Default Value
-EnableException

By default, when something goes wrong we try to catch it, interpret it and give you a friendly warning message. This avoids overwhelming you with "sea of red" exceptions, but is inconvenient because it basically disables advanced scripting. Using this switch turns this "nice by default" feature off and enables you to catch exceptions with your own try/catch.

Alias
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value False
-WhatIf

If this switch is enabled, no actions are performed but informational messages will be displayed that explain what would happen if the command were to run.

Alias wi
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
-Confirm

If this switch is enabled, you will be prompted for confirmation before executing any operations that change state.

Alias cf
Required False
Pipeline false
Default Value
