The Add-Computer cmdlet adds the local computer or remote computers to a domain or workgroup, or moves them from one do
main to another. It also creates a domain account if the computer is added to the domain without an account.

You can use the parameters of this cmdlet to specify an organizational unit (OU) and domain controller or to perform an
 unsecure join.

To get the results of the command, use the Verbose and PassThru parameters.
