Hi Experts,
@Jose Gabriel Ortega C thank you for mentioning our article! The article answers the question completely.
@alanlam123 It seems that the connection to Exchange Server has failed. Please try following the steps from the following article to ensure your PowerShell connects with the Exchange Server: How to start remote PowerShell session to Exchange or Office 365
Alternatively, you can use EAC to run those scripts.

Well the point in there Alan is that you are running the command in a regular PowerShell console, you need to run it from the "Exchange Console" not for a regular PowerShell because you would need to add an additional SnapIn to get the Exchange Cmdlets in that PowerShell session).
