Installing SCVMM 2008 R2.  During the install I receive the following error:

"Failed to configure the WS-Management service.  In the Local Gourp Policy Editor, navigate to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Remote Management (WinRM), and then ensure that there are no policy settings configured for WinRM Client or WinRM Service."

I've checked the local group policy and there are no policy settings configured.  I found some suggestions on other sites, one of which was to install IIS 6 Management Compatibilty which I did but I still get the same error.

This is quite an old solution that doesn't seem to apply to my server 2008r2sp1attempted installation of VMM 2008 r2sp1. It fails the same way as illustrated above with the suggested remedy: "Failed to configure the WS-Management service.  In the Local Gourp Policy Editor, navigate to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Remote Management (WinRM), and then ensure that there are no policy settings configured for WinRM Client or WinRM Service" - these policies are not set nor have they ever been.

the patch recommended was not for server 2008 r2 and of course did not install since it wasn't needed. the server has winrm enabled and the service running. it has iis feature enabled. everything that should be set seems to be set but the machine will not install vmm. One thing I have not done is enable the hyper-v role on this server as it seems not to be necessary. I don't intend to run VMM in a virtual machine but to administer virtual hosts and guests with this VMM installation.
