Example 1: Get all configuration providers by a specified type

PS C:\> Get-SCConfigurationProvider -ProviderType "LoadBalancer"

This command gets all configuration providers that are load balancers.

Example 2: Get a configuration provider by its name

PS C:\> $ConfigProvider = Get-SCConfigurationProvider -Name "Microsoft Network Load Balancing (NLB)"
