All comments pertain to SQL SRV 2012; I have 2008R2.
However, I did try all suggestions and got error messages; see attached screenshots.
The Database Journal directions did not let me complete because I have 2008.

There are different implementations of sqlps. You have sqlps.exe (in binn folder of SQL installed) in pre SQL 2012. It can't be run from powershell. It is so-called minishell (Powershell with integrated SQL commandlets).
You can run it directly from command prompt.
In SQL 2012 you can download it and import it into standard powershell. I hope you can use it also with SQL 2008.

Thanks. I found the executable in the binn folder and pinned it to my taskbar. It works.
