You will be redirected to Administrator: SharePoint 2019 Management Shell.
Step 5: Create Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Subscription Settings Service using PowerShell
Run the command below and hit Enter using your keyboard:
$sa = New-SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplication -ApplicationPool 'SharePoint Web Services Default' -Name 'Subscriptions Settings Service Application' -DatabaseName 'Subscription'

After running these commands, you should see the server DisplayName, TypeName, and ID in a table format.
