I wrote a simple powershell script that will go into Event viewer on remote host and grab the log from it. The problem on hand is that the client is unable to connect to remote server with new-pssesion command.
When i try to open connection from client to server, i get this error:
PS C:\Users\user> New-PSSession -ComputerName SERVERHOSTNAME -Credential DOMAIN\user New-PSSession : [SERVERHOSTNAME] Connecting to remote server SERVERHOSTNAME failed with the following error message : WinRM cannot complete the operation. Verify that the specified computer name is valid, that the computer is accessible over the network, and that a firewall exception for the WinRM service is enabled and allows access from this computer. By default, the WinRM firewall exception for public profiles limits access to remote computers within the same local subnet. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic. At line:1 char:1 + New-PSSession -ComputerName SERVERHOSTNAME -Credential DOMAIN\user + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : OpenError: (System.Manageme....RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) [New-PSSession], PSRemotingTransportException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : WinRMOperationTimeout,PSSessionOpenFailed
have verified that the psremoting is enabled and winrm service is running on both client and server. Still no luck. I have temporary disabled windows firewall just to rule it out of equation. Both systems are using Windows Server 2012 R2.
Any ideas guys?
