- Disconnect-VIServer [[-Server] <VIServer>] [-Force] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]
- This cmdlet closes the connection to a vCenter Server system. In PowerCLI, you can have multiple connections to a server. In order to disconnect from a server, you must close all active connections to it. By default, Disconnect-VIServer closes only the last connection to the specified server. To close all active connections to a server, use the Force parameter or run the cmdlet for each connection. When a server is disconnected, it is removed from the default servers list. For more information about default servers, see the description of Connect-VIServer.
- -Server <VIServer>
- Specifies the vCenter Server systems you want to disconnect from.
-Force Indicates that you want to close all active connections to the specified server and disconnect from it. If the value is $false, the cmdlet closes only the last connection to the specified server and you must run Disconnect-VIServer for each active connection to this server in order to disconnect from it. -WhatIf Indicates that the cmdlet is run only to display the changes that would be made and actually no objects are modified. -Confirm If the value is $true, indicates that the cmdlet asks for confirmation before running. If the value is $false, the cmdlet runs without asking for user confirmation.
