DsmlSoapConnection.EndSession Method

The EndSession method ends the session with the DSML server and clears the SessionId property.

Namespace:  System.DirectoryServices.Protocols
Assembly:  System.DirectoryServices.Protocols (in System.DirectoryServices.Protocols.dll)

[DirectoryServicesPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Unrestricted = true)]
public abstract void EndSession()


Thrown when a communications failure occurs with the DSML server.


Thrown when there is no open session.

The method will block while waiting for a response from the DSML server and will timeout according to the Timeout property.

If the DSML server terminates the session, a WebException

is thrown. If SessionId is still valid after the exception is thrown, the request never reached the server and the connection is still considered valid.
