On my Windows 7 machine provided by my employer, I had the admin staff load WMF 4.0 (I am not a local admin on this machine) and I am sitting at PSVersion=4.0 (from $psversiontable). I had them install and enable RSAT. The DNS manager is there i.e, the mmc that allows one to connect to a Microsoft DNS machine.. When I issue " get-module -listavailable" , I see about 17 manifests but no DnsServer. When I try to issue get-DnsServerResourceRecord, I get a message stating the cmdlet is not recognized.

How do I get this module to load so I can use that cmdlet?

The minimum supported client for the DnsServer module is Windows 8: https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windows/desktop/hh832775.aspx
This module is not available on Windows 7.

Thank you for your guidance and prompt reply.

Frustrating, however, with MSFT's stance.

Enter-PSSession to a Windows 2012 server or evaluate Windows 10 in a VM 🙂
Dont forget about authentication if your Windows 2012 server is not your DNS server
