Powershell Auto Confirmation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I want to script the stopping of Windows Failover cluster but can't seem to get it to auto confirm. I've tried using -Confirm:$false but that doesn't seem to help and I still get asked to confirm

    Stop-Cluster -Name cluster.domain.com -Confirm:$false

    Are you sure you want to stop the cluster cluster.domain.com?
    [Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"):

    Is there a way I can achieve this

  • Use -Force instead:

    Stop-Cluster -Name cluster.domain.com -Force

    The documentation on Stop-Cluster shows that -Confirm is a switch parameter which will prompt the user to confirm the change. -Force will force the command to run without user confirmation.

  • Hi Jeremy, same issue

    PS C:\Users\administrator.DOMAIN> Stop-Cluster -Name cluster.domain.com -Force

    Are you sure you want to perform this action?

  • That's odd. I just tried it in my lab environment just to be sure and it worked as expected - no prompt, just killed the Cluster service.
