The user-provided value for the /server option. Example: teamfoundation2.

labelname

Specifies the name of the label to remove from the specified items.

Identifies the file or folder from which to remove the specified label. For more information about how Team Foundation parses itemspecs to determine which items are within scope, see Command-Line Syntax (Team System).

Option

/recursive

The unlabel command of the tf command-line utility removes an item from an existing label in the Team Foundation version control server. For an introduction to labels, see Working with Labels. For information about how to assign a label to a set of files and folders, see Label Command (Team Foundation Version Control).

If you remove all items from a label in the Team Foundation version control server, that label is deleted. You can also delete a label using the command tf label /delete. To learn more about the existing labels in the system, see Labels Command.

For more information on how to find the tf command-line utility, see Tf Command-Line Utility Commands.
