-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS> Get-BrokerServiceInstance

Gets all the service instances of the Broker service running on the connected server. (If AdminAddress has not been set for the runspace, this is the Service running on the local machine.) To get the service instances of remote services, use the AdminAddress parameter. This defines the service required by the interfaces.
