Remove-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy

Remove-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy

microsoft.activedirectory.management.dll

Synopsis

Removes an Active Directory fine-grained password policy.

Syntax

Remove-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy [-Identity] [-AuthType] [-Credential] [-Server] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Remove-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy cmdlet removes an Active Directory fine-grained password policy.

The Identity parameter specifies the Active Directory fine-grained password policy to remove. You can identify a fine-grained password policy by its distinguished name, or GUID. You can also set the Identity parameter to a fine-grained password object variable, such as $<localFineGrainedPasswordPolicyObject>, or you can pass a fine-grained password policy object through the pipeline to the Identity parameter. For example, you can use the Get-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy cmdlet to retrieve a fine-grained password policy object and then pass the object through the pipeline operator to the Remove-ADFineGrainedPasswordPolicy cmdlet.

Parameters

-AuthType <ADAuthType>

Specifies the authentication method to use. The acceptable values for this parameter are:  -- Negotiate or 0 -- Basic or 1

The default authentication method is Negotiate.

A Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection is required for the Basic authentication method.

-Credential <PSCredential>

Specifies the user account credentials to use to perform this task. The default credentials are the credentials of the currently logged on user unless the cmdlet is run from an Active Directory PowerShell provider drive. If the cmdlet is run from such a provider drive, the account associated with the drive is the default.

To specify this parameter, you can type a user name, such as User1 or Domain01\User01 or you can specify a PSCredential object. If you specify a user name for this parameter, the cmdlet prompts for a password.

You can also create a PSCredential object by using a script or by using the Get-Credential cmdlet. You can then set the Credential parameter to the PSCredential object.

If the acting credentials do not have directory-level permission to perform the task, Active Directory PowerShell returns a terminating error.

The acceptable values for this parameter are:  -- A Distinguished Name (distinguishedName) -- A GUID (objectGUID) -- A Name (name)

The cmdlet searches the default naming context or partition to find the object. If two or more objects are found, the cmdlet returns a non-terminating error.

This parameter can also get this object through the pipeline operator or you can set this parameter to a fine-grained password policy object instance.
