Here is how i end up fixing this issue

  1. Install the powershell module on the server using Install-Module -Name SqlServer
  2. Download the following from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=52676 and install in order

    1. SQLSysClrTypes
    2. SharedManagementObjects
    3. PowerShellTools

Make sure it is installed and listed on HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\ShellIds\Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.PowerShell.sqlps
