Detailed Description

This cmdlet closes the connection to the servers specified by the Server parameter.

When no servers are specified and if there is only one connected server in the $defaultVmcServers variable, this server is disconnected. If there is no connected server, the cmdlet throws a non-terminating error.

This functionality is using the reference counting mechanism. For more information about the mechanism, see Connect-Vmc.

When there are no more active connections to the server, it gets disconnected and then it is removed from the $defaultVmcServers variable (if it is present). For more information about this variable, see Connect-Vmc.

If the Force parameter is specified, the server is disconnected even if there is more than one connection to it. The RefCount property of the object is incremented by one.
