    This command adds a VM named "vm3" to a job represented by $job variable. The VM is located on the server represented by the $server variable. The job object and the server object are obtained with Get-VBRJob and Get-VBRServer and assigned to the variables accordingly beforehand.

    Add-VBRJobObject –Job $job –Server $server –Objects vm3

    Example 2

    This command adds a VM named "vm3" to the job represented by the $job variable. The VM is obtained with Find-VBRViEntity and piped down.
