Importing SCOM Powershell Cmdlets

I am trying to run powershell cmdlets of SCOM from my laptop. I have installed the SCOM Operations Console, but when I open my Powershell V3 console, and try to run the SCOM cmdlets they don’t run (obviously).

So I tried to import the respective module, but i am getting the below error.

PS C:\Windows\system32> Add-SnapIn Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client

Add-SnapIn : The term ‘Add-SnapIn’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included,
verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:1

  • Add-SnapIn Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client
  •   + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Add-SnapIn:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
      + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

The error message is perhaps saying that add-snapin is not recognized in Powershell V3. If not then how can I go about the same.

Googling the error message didn’t help me out at all. Is there a simpler step by step to make this happen?

Try using (b)Add-PSSnapin(/b) vs. Add-Snapin

Add-PSSnapIn Microsoft.EnterpriseManagement.OperationsManager.Client
