I am trying to determine which version of SMB/CIFS is in use by clients attached to shared folders on my Windows Server 2016. If I run the powershell command Get-SmbConnection on the Windows Server, it will show the SMB version in use on shared folders that the server has connected to, not the SMB versions of clients connected to it.

I did find a way to do this. Hopefully this helps someone else looking for the same information.

On the server, open a powershell then enter this command:
Get-SmbSession | Select-Object -Property ClientComputerName,ClientUserName,Dialect

For more verbose output:
Get-SmbSession | Select-Object -Property *
