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.
