Can't remove failed virtual switch from Hyper-V's Virtual Switch Manager RRS feed

  • คำถาม

  • Hello,

    We have a virtual switch setup in the Virtual Switch Manager and the adapter has been deleted by mistake using the "Change Adapter Settings..." of the Network And Sharing Center. Now, obiviously the switch is in a failed state and we just want to remove it from the list.

    The Hyper-V console and the PowerShell command ("remove-vmswitch -Name "VSITCH01" - force") both returnsthe error below when removing the switch, because obivously, it can't find the adapter. How do I force remove the switch from the list?

    remove-vmswitch : Failed while removing virtual Ethernet switch.
    Failed to connect Ethernet switch port (switch name = '49ACD343-5D84-40F8-9B87-70F34F820AF1', port name =

    A parameter that is not valid was passed to the operation.

  • Thank you for your reply. I have deleted it from there but it was still appearing in the list. I made a registry-wide search and found the switch configuration is stored in "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VMSMP\Parameters\SwitchList". I deleted the entry then rebooted and now the switch is gone
