Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false


Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller to which the PowerShell snap-in connects. You can provide this as a host name or an IP address.

Input Type

System.string You can pipe a string that contains a path to Remove-HypHypervisorConnectionAddress (Path parameter).


Changes to a hypervisor connection affect all entities that reference the connection. If all addresses are removed from the connection, any other entities that reference the hypervisor connection (e.g. hosting units) cannot make new connections to the hypervisor.

In the case of failure, the following errors can result.
