I have some SQL Server machines that cannot connect to any external sites.
I have been using PowerShell more and more when managing databases, so I definitely need this module to be installed so that I can use my PowerShell routines.
It has been proven difficult to install the SQL Server module on those offline machines.
When I try to install the module:
SqlServer module asks for the NuGet module package:
I then get this ocean of red letters and the following error message as you can see on the picture below:
WARNING: Unable to download from URI 'https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=627338&clcid=0x409' to ''.
WARNING: Unable to download the list of available providers. Check your internet connection. PackageManagement\Get-PackageProvider : Unable to find package provider 'NuGet'.

What is the workaround for this PowerShell module installation?
