    I'm assuming you mean the PowerShell module for SQL Server. If yes, you'll need to download and install a few components from the feature pack. Documentation here:


    Otherwise the PowerShell engine should already be installed if you're using a somewhat recent Windows client or server operating system.

    If you are looking to remotely manage a SQL server from a system that does not have the SQL Server modules (or any other kind of module), you can try using Implicit Remoting. Don Jones has a write-up here.

    If you're new to PowerShell, I recommend getting started with these books to increase your skill and get more comfortable with it:

    Learn PowerShell in a Month of Lunches
    Learn PowerShell Toolmaking in a Month of Lunches
    PowerShell In Depth
    The Pester Book (agile publishing)
