Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: Windows PowerShell 2.0

Disconnects the client from the WinRM service on a remote computer.

Syntax

Disconnect-WSMan [-ComputerName <string>] [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Disconnect-WSMan cmdlet disconnects the client from the WinRM service on a remote computer. If you saved the WS-Management session in a variable, the session object remains in the variable, but the state of the WS-Management session is "Closed". You can use this cmdlet within the context of the WSMan Provider to disconnect the client from the WinRM service on a remote computer. However, you can also use this cmdlet to disconnect from the WinRM service on remote computers before you change to the WSMan Provider.

For more information about how to connect to the WinRM service on a remote computer, see Connect-WSMan.

Parameters

-ComputerName <string>

Specifies the computer from which you want to disconnect. The value can be a fully qualified domain name, a NetBIOS name, or an IP address.

When the remote computer is in a different domain from the user, you must use a fully qualified domain name must be used. You can pipe a value for this parameter to the cmdlet.

Note: You cannot disconnect from the local host (the default connection to the local computer). However, if a separate connection is made to the local computer (for example, by using the computer name), you can remove that connection by using the Disconnect-WSMan cmdlet .
