Detailed Description

The Close-SMBOpenFile cmdlet forcibly closes a file that is open by one of the clients of the Server Message Block (SMB) server. This cmdlet should be used with care as it may result in data loss to the client for which the file is being closed if the client has not flushed all of the file modifications back to the server before the file is closed.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.
