Learning Powershell? Mind your flags!

I can't believe such a small, silly thing had me going for ten minutes!

When trying to retrieve a signed certificate from my ADCS rootCA, I kept getting a "file not found" error:

> certreq retrieve 2 .subCA.corp.contoso.com_subCA.crt
: The system cannot find the file specified. 0x80070002 (WIN32: 2)

Googling didn't lead to many results, but then I realized: Windows commands need to discern between variables and values, just like any OS. Doh! Forgot the minus!

>  certreq -retrieve 2 .subCA.corp.contoso.com_subCA.crt

Works just fine!
