I am attempting to run wsadmin.bat remotely via WiinRM's functionality in powershell.
When in a remote session, I try and run the command:
.\wsadmin.bat -user test -password test1 -lang jython
and I get the error message below. I have no idea where to even being to troubleshoot this, does anybody else?

JVMJ9VM015W Initialization error for library j9gc23(5): Failed to allocate default memory space
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (JVMJ9VM015W Ini...lt memory space:String) [], RemoteException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NativeCommandError

What is the current working directory?

I suggest that instead of using:

.\wsadmin.bat ...

that you fully qualify it

C:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin\wsadmin.bat ...

Working Directory is D:\
Fully qualified name produces same results - its actually what I normally use, just used .\ so I didnt have to type it all out.

When you remotely execute the wsadmin command, do you specify a userid / password to be used to perform the connection?  Might it be executing, or trying to execute wsadmin without having sufficient permission/privileges?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

I can run other commands remotely to this server with out any errors, as the account used to create and use the remote connection is local admin for the server.

Are these other kinds of commands interactive?

The example you show in your question attempts to start an interactive wsadmin session.

Instead, try something like:

.\wsadmin.bat -user test -password test1 -lang jython -c "print AdminConfig.list('Server')"

When you execute it locally, does it succeed?

What version of WebSphere is being used?

What's the "Installed Product" section of the following command look like?

  D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin\versionInfo

What profiles do you have defined?

What does the output of this command look like?

  D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin\manageprofiles -listProfiles

What is the default profile?

What does the output of this command look like?

  D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin\manageprofiles -getDefaultName

Is the default profile active?

What does the output of this command look like?

  D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin\serverStatus -all
