Syntax Remove-CimSession [-CimSession] CimSession [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters] Remove-CimSession [-ComputerName] String [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters] Remove-CimSession [-Id] UInt32 [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters] Remove-CimSession -InstanceId Guid [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters] Remove-CimSession -Name String [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [CommonParameters] Key -CimSession CimSession Runs the command using the specified CIM session. Enter a variable that contains the CIM session, or a command that creates or gets the CIM session, such as the New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlets. For more information, see about_CimSessions. -ComputerName String The computer on which you want to run the CIM operation. You can specify a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), or a NetBIOS name. If you specify this parameter, the cmdlet creates a temporary session to the specified computer using the WsMan protocol.If you do not specify this parameter, the cmdlet performs the operation on the local computer using Component Object Model (COM). If multiple operations are being performed on the same computer, using a CIM session gives better performance. -Id UInt32 The identifier (ID) ID of the CIM session to remove. For one or more IDs, use commas to separate the IDs, or use the range operator (..) to specify a range of IDs. An ID is an integer that uniquely identifies the CIM session in the current wps_2 session. It is easier to remember and type than InstanceId, but it is unique only within the current wps_2 session. -InstanceId Guid The instance ID of the CIM session to remove. InstanceID is a GUID that uniquely identifies a CIM session. The InstanceID is unique, even when you have multiple sessions running in wps_2. The InstanceID is stored in the InstanceID property of the object that represents a CIM session. -Name String The friendly name of the CIM session to remove. You can use wildcard characters with this parameter. -Confirm Prompt for confirmation before executing the command. -WhatIf Describe what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing it.
