delete file on powershell script

hello,

With this code, i try to delete files, these files exist but it doesn't work :
$FileExists = "C:\dba\install\ini\cluster_configurationfile.ini"
$FileExists2= "C:\dba\install\ini\node_configurationfile.ini"
If ($FileExists -eq $True) { remove-item $FileExists}
If ($FileExists2 -eq $True) { remove-item $FileExists2}

How can I resolve this problem?

Thanks

Try this

$FileExists = Test-path "C:\dba\install\ini\cluster_configurationfile.ini"
$FileExists2= Test-path "C:\dba\install\ini\node_configurationfile.ini"
If ($FileExists) { get-item $FileExists | remove-item}
If ($FileExists2) { get-item $FileExists2 | remove-item }

What you were doing is just giving powershell a string. $FileExists does not give a value of TRUE or FALSE. You will need to verify that file does exist and not just give a string value. You can use test-path for this. To verify run
$FileExists = Test-path "C:\dba\install\ini\cluster_configurationfile.ini"

then type

$FileExists

it will return a value of TRUE or FALSE.

Then you use get-item and pass through the pipe line to remove item.
