    i want to use the command Remove-Computer to unjoin computers from domain.
    I use this command :

    Remove-Computer  -UnjoinDomainCredential C_NET\Administrateur -ComputerName VSMW0020 -Force -Restart

    Unjoin domain works, but not the restart :

    Remove-Computer : Impossible de redémarrer l'ordinateur VSMW0020 avec le message d'erreur suivant : Accès refusé .
    Au caractère Ligne:1 : 1
    + Remove-Computer -UnjoinDomainCredential C_NET\Administrateur -ComputerName VSMW ...
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : OperationStopped: (VSMW0020:String) [Remove-Computer], InvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : RestartcomputerFailed,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.RemoveComputerCommand

    Can someone help?

    It's an Access Denied error. Is the account that's running the command also an administrator on the target computer? If not, you'll also need to use the -LocalCredential parameter in addition to -UnjoinDomainCredential. (You can pass the same credentials to both parameters, if appropriate.)

    This account is domain administrator, isn't enough?

    Which account? There are two sets of credentials in play, in the original command you posted. C_NET\Administrateur is used to connect to the domain controller and perform that part of the unjoin process. To connect to the VSMW0020 computer, though, the cmdlet is just using the credentials of whatever user is logged on and running the command. To use the C_NET\Administrateur account for both parts of the operation, you'd do something like this:

    $cred = Get-Credential C_NET\Administrateur
    Remove-Computer  -UnjoinDomainCredential $cred -LocalCredential $cred -ComputerName VSMW0020 -Force -Restart
