Description

The Stop-SbecInstance cmdlet stops an instance of the Setup and Boot Event Collector.

You must have the Builtin Administrator privilege to run this cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Stop the Boot Event Collector service

PS C:\> Stop-SbecInstance -Service

This command stops the Boot Event Collector service.

Example 2: Stop a Boot Event Collector instance

PS C:\> Stop-SbecInstance -Direct

This command stops an instance of Boot Event Collector that was started from the command line.

Example 3: Immediately stop a Boot Event Collector instance

PS C:\> Stop-SbecInstance -Direct -Force

This command stops an instance of Boot Event Collector that was started from the command line, and discards any buffered but not-yet processed data.

Required Parameters

-Direct

Stops the Setup and Boot Event Collector instance directly through the WMI/CIM interface. Specify this parameter to stop an instance of the Setup and Boot Event Collector that was started from a command prompt.

If multiple instances are running (including the service), specifying this parameter stops a random instance, because WMI connects to a random instance. Do not use this parameter with the service, because the service controller interprets it as a service failure and restarts it.

Optional Parameters

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet on the remote computers through a remote session. Enter a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet or an array of these objects. The default is to run the cmdlet on the local computer. For more information, see About_CimSession.

Type:CimSession[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-ComputerName

Specifies the name of the computers on which you want to perform the operation. You can specify a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), a NetBIOS name, or an IP address. For more information see Invoke-CimMethod on MSDN.

Type:String[]
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
-Force

With the Service parameter, this parameter acts as a pass-through parameter for Stop-Service, allowing the cmdlet to stop a service even if that service has dependent services. With Direct, requests the fast stopping, discarding the buffered but not yet fully processed data.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
