Removes a custom namespace. Note that unless you specify a value for the /Force option, existing clients will be able to complete the transfer but new clients will not be able to join.

Syntax

WDSUTIL /Remove-Namespace /Namespace:<Namespace name> [/Server:<Server name>] [/Force]

Parameters

Parameter Description

/Namespace:<Namespace name>

Specifies the name of the namespace. This is not the friendly name, and it must be unique.

  • Deployment Server: The syntax for namespace name is /Namespace:WDS:<ImageGroup>/<ImageName>/<Index>. For example: WDS:ImageGroup1/install.wim/1

  • Transport Server: This value must match the name given to the namespace when it was created on the server.

[/Server:<Server name>]

Specifies the name of the server. This can be either the NetBIOS name or the fully qualified domain name (FQDN). If no server name is specified, the local server will be used.

[/Force]

Removes the namespace immediately and terminates all clients.

Examples

To stop a namespace (current clients will complete the transfer but new clients will not be able to join), type:

WDSUTIL /Remove-Namespace /Namespace:"Custom Auto 1"

To force termination of all clients, type:

WDSUTIL /Remove-Namespace /Server:MyWDSServer /Namespace:"Custom Auto 1" /Force
