Steps to Load SqlServer Module from File

  1. Ensure you have the module files: Verify that you have the SqlServer module files on your local machine. The module folder should contain a .psd1 (module manifest) file and possibly other related files.

  2. Determine the path to the module: Identify the directory where the module files are stored. For example, if the SqlServer module files are located in C:\Modules\SqlServer.

  3. Import the module: Use the Import-Module cmdlet to load the module by specifying the path to the module manifest file.

Example Command

Assuming the SqlServer module is located at C:\Modules\SqlServer, you can import it using the following command:

Import-Module -Name "C:\Modules\SqlServer\SqlServer.psd1"
