          Nisse, PowerShell documentation is open source at https://github.com/powershell/powershell-docs . If there are things you want to see added to the existing PowerShell documentation, that would be a great place to raise issues.

            Moved to networking, as the PowerShell team does not own this cmdlet.

              I also filed a bug to track this internally

                Moving to Active Directory, since this is an AD cmdlet and not a PowerShell-owned cmdlet.

                    Moving to Management Tools -> Group Policy as this is a issue with GP cmdlets, not PowerShell specifically

                      Moving to IIS forum, as they own this module.

                          DSC compiler doesn’t support ciminstance object as property value, but as a workaround you still can have method to create website binding as in the following example provided by one of our devs, Amit:

                          Configuration DscTest

                          {

                          Import-DscResource -ModuleName xWebAdministration;

                          function Get-TestBindingInformation

                          {

                          param(

                          [System.Collections.Hashtable] $node

                          )

                          return @(

                          MSFT_xWebBindingInformation {

                          Port = 80

                          Protocol = "HTTP"

                          HostName = "test1"

                          }

                          MSFT_xWebBindingInformation {

                          Port = 80

                          Protocol = "HTTP"

                          HostName = "test2"

                          }

                          )

                          }

                          Node localhost

                          {

                          xWebsite TestWebSite

                          {

                          Ensure = "Present"

                          Name = "TestWebSite"

                          PhysicalPath = "C:\inetpub\test"

                          BindingInfo = (Get-TestBindingInformation $Node)

                          }

                          }

                          }

                          DscTest

                          Just pulling this in from the linked GitHub issue:
                          "the MOF is clearly not generated correctly if the objects that are passed to an Embedded Instance is contained in a variable."
