    4. Add the computer to the group of computers in the $comp variable. Use the += operator.
    5. Run Set-VBRIndividualComputerContainer with the $group and $comp variables to modify the protection scope. Save the result to the $newcomp variable.
    6. Run Set-VBRProtectionGroup with the $group and $newcomp variables.

    $group = Get-VBRProtectionGroup -Name Computers

    $comp = $group.Container.CustomCredentials

    $supervisor = New-VBRIndividualComputerCustomCredentials -HostName support.east.local -Credentials support\jsmith
