  1. Open PowerShell ISE as administrator.
  2. Import the SQLPS module and create a new SMO Server Object:
    #import SQL Server module
    Import-Module SQLPS -DisableNameChecking
    
    #replace this with your instance name
    $instanceName = "localhost"
    $server = New-Object -TypeName Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server -ArgumentList $instanceName

    To explore what members and methods are included in the SMO server, use the following:
