Hi,

First install PowerCli

https://blogs.vmware.com/PowerCLI/2018/02/powercli-10.html

Second for a easy use of powershell script I recomend you use a Powershell editor, I user PowerGui

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Programming/File-Editors/Quest-PowerGUI.shtml

Then just copy past the script to a new PowerGui session and click run.
