Recently, while trying to create an Azure SQL database using PowerShell, I got the above error message. Below was the cmdlet I was executing for creating the AzureSQL database.

# Creation of server
$Myserver = New-AzSqlServer -ResourceGroupName $MyresourceGroupName `
    -ServerName $NewserverName `
    -Location $Mylocation `
    -SqlAdministratorCredentials $(New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $NewadminSqlLogin, $(ConvertTo-SecureString -String $Newpassword -AsPlainText -Force))
The 'New-AzSqlServer' command was found in the module 'Az.Sql', but the module could not be loaded.

Note: This is the part of my actual script.

The exact error message was

New-AzSqlServer: The ‘New-AzSqlServer’ command was found in the module ‘Az.Sql’, but the module could not be loaded. For more information, run ‘Import-Module Az.Sql’.

  • ~~~

To fix the above issue, you need to follow the below steps

Run the below command to import the Az.Sql

PS C:\windows\system32> Import-Module Az.Sql

I was using the below cmdlet

    -ServerName $NewserverName `
    -FirewallRuleName "AllowedIPs" -StartIpAddress $NewstartIp -EndIpAddress $NewendIp
