    Would this third version of the command work to retrieve the list of hotfixes
    from the domain controllers? Why or why not? Write out an explanation, similar
    to the ones I provided earlier in this chapter.

    get-adcomputer -filter * `
    -searchbase "ou=domain controllers,dc=company,dc=pri" |`
    Select-Object @{l='computername';e={$_.name}} |`
    Get-Hotfix 

    The lab answers state that this solution should work. However, it seems to just run on the localhost and ignore the results found in get-adcomputer. What am I missing here?

    It used to work. Microsoft had a bug in the command and removed the pipeline binding for the computer name parameter.

    Ah okay. The command help does not reflect that. Thanks very much for your feedback!
