Examples

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

Description

-----------

This command exports all management packs whose Name or DisplayName property contains the "ServiceManager.ConfigurationManagement.Library" string. In this example, the first command in the pipeline uses the Get-SCSMManagementPack cmdlet to get the requested management packs. The pipeline operator then pipes the output of the first command to the second command.
