One quick thing is to right-click and choose run as administrator. See if that helps.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Bottom post with this link said it fixed it.  Since it intergrates with AD maybe.  Not sure why you need netdom but thats what was used to fix it for this guy.

Try this all

Two things were wrong:
Remove any port 80 site bindings that point to a hostname. (IIS Manager, Default Site)
Rename any WEB.CONFIG file in the WWWROOT folder (C:\Inetpub\wwwroot)
Reboot the Server.

If the above steps does not resolved the issue then simply reboot the server and check ths issue.

Hope this helps.

OK, there are several things that could be causing this. But the more common ones that I've ran into in multiple environment is that something was changed on the RPC virtual directory. I would say, authentication, which should remain on basic.

Aside from that, I've only seen this once where something was changed in IIS, which I was never able to determine what changed it but it was an entry missing the applicationhost configuration:

Try: winrm /qc in EPS and see if it's automatically configured.

Under the PowerShell Virtual Directory go to Modules and look for Kerbauth.dll, make sure that it appears as Native and not managed.

Next, go to C:\Windows\System32\Inetsrv\config\ApplicationHost.config, do CTRL+F to find the keyword: wsmsvc.dll
If you cannot locate this keyword, the below entry needs to be added in the globalModules section.
<globalModules>
           <add name="WSMan" image="C:\Windows\system32\wsmsvc.dll" />


If the entries exist under globalmodules then read the below articles for further trouble shooting.

As Viralrathod mentioned, make sure that under Default WebSite there are no bindings (no URLs) for port 80 and * (all unassigned IPs) opposed to an assigned IP.
