I have a simple XML file with the regular "header" and one root element containing multiple child elements where some contain values describing the host and some are empty. My problem is when I save my xml into a variable
[xml]$xml = Get-Content host.xml
$details = $xml.host

I then try to extract the values for of the child elements like so
$xml.host.serialNumber – this works. But when I use my $details variable it doesn't.
$details.serialNumber – this doesn't.
What am I missing?
