First check which session you want to terminate by: cifs sessions.

And then terminate that session as : cifs terminate user/machine

I guess for that you can use option stop sharing from windows host which is used for managing filer/cifs shares, which will terminate all the active sessions.

Stop Sharing from Windows MMC will delete the share from the Storage Server.

You can terminate CIFS on a particular volume.

You can do at volume level, go to advanced mode and try adding -v volume_name to cifs terminate and restart commands.

you cannot terminate cifs for a particular share or at volume level but you can terminate the access to a particular workstation using the command "cifs terminate <workstation>", that terminates the access to the share from that workstation.

thank you,

should work at the volume level like baijulal listed... advanced mode though.

go to computer management connect to your vfiler..

expand shared folders --> Shares --> on the right pane you will be seeing all the share names, you can right click on any share and stop.

( from command line.. its better you go to vfiler first and see how many active sessions are there and send out notification before you stop. )

Hi Vijay,

Please go to the System Manager and select the particular Share that you wish to terminate the sessions of and then Click on the Stop Sharing option on the top. This will terminate the cifs sessions for that particular share.

Dharmesh
