This command retrieves the network interfaces used by the SMB client.

Example 2: Get network interfaces used by an SMB client for a specified link speed

PS C:\>Get-SmbClientNetworkInterface | Where-Object -Property LinkSpeed -Gt 10GB
Interface Index     RSS Capable         RDMA Capable        Speed               IpAddresses         Friendly Name 
---------------     -----------         ------------        -----               -----------         ------------- 
12                  True                True                32 Gbps             {192.168.101.13}    RDMA1 
15                  True                True                32 Gbps             {192.168.102.13}    RDMA2

This command retrieves the network interfaces used by the SMB client that match the link speed of 10 gigabits or more.

Example 3: Display details for network interfaces

PS C:\>Get-SmbClientNetworkInterface | Where-Object -Property LinkSpeed -Gt 10GB | Select-Object -Property *
FriendlyName          : RDMA1 
InterfaceIndex        : 12 
IpAddresses           : {192.168.101.13}

CimSystemProperties   : Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimSystemProperties 

FriendlyName          : RDMA2 
InterfaceIndex        : 15 
IpAddresses           : {192.168.102.13} 
LinkSpeed             : 32000000000

CimInstanceProperties : {FriendlyName, InterfaceIndex, IpAddresses, LinkSpeed...} 
CimSystemProperties   : Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimSystemProperties

This command displays all of the information retrieved from the network interfaces used by the SMB client that match the link speed of 10 gigabits or more.

Optional Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

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

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

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

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type:Int32
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Inputs

None

Outputs

Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root/Microsoft/Windows/SMB/MSFT_SmbClientNetworkInterface

The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object. This cmdlet returns a MSFT_SmbClientNetworkInterface object that represents the network interfaces used by the SMB client.
