Description

The Close-SmbSession cmdlet forcibly ends the Server Message Block (SMB) session. This cmdlet may cause loss of data if the client for which session is being stopped has not flushed all of the file modifications back to the server before the session is ended.

Examples

Example 1: End an SMB session

PS C:\>Close-SmbSession -SessionId 8813272891621
Confirm 
Are you sure you want to perform this action? 
Performing operation 'Close-Session' on Target '8813272891621'. 
[Y] Yes  [A] Yes to All  [N] No  [L] No to All  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"): N

This command ends an SMB session.

Example 2: End an SMB session without confirmation

PS C:\>Close-SmbSession -SessionId 8813272891621 -Force

This command ends an SMB session without user confirmation.
