I have 2 servers that I'm having some issues with. I am running GFI event manager on a server runnning windows 2008 R2. I have a group of machines that are running just windows 2008. I cannot seem to connect to them to get their logs. I also can't seem to "remotely" connect to the machine to manage their logs from any windows 2008 R2 machine.

I'm seeing some stuf fonline about enabling windows 2008 R2 to be remotely managed and such but nothing about a windows 2008 R2 server to be able to manage a windows 2008 machine? I am on the same LAN. What am I doing wrong?

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 followed this article and it doesn't help me.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976839/ru

I enabled remote management but I still get the error messages. so I tried step two which has me try to run several commands.

DISM.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:MicrosoftWindowsPowerShell

DISM.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:ServerManager-PSH-Cmdlets

DISM.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:BestPractices-PSH-Cmdlets


when I go to run the first command (by cmd w admin privileges) I get an error with the following:


 DISM.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:MicrosoftWindowsPowerShell


Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.1.7600.16385

Image Version: 6.1.7600.16385


Error: 0x800f080c

Feature name MicrosoftWindowsPowerShell is unknown.
A Windows feature name was not recognized.
Use the /Get-Features option to find the name of the feature in the image and try the command again.

The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log

 

The error I have attached seems to relate to some issues with the schema?  remote management error
I have run the winrm /quickconfig as well and it's now saying

WinRM already is setup to receive requests on this machine.
WinRM already is setup for remote management on this machine.

It seems like there's a schema missing some stuff. This WS-Management catalog/schema seems to be referenced in the error. All google searches lead to nothing. Some info on downloading some management packs for microsoft operations manager 07 or something but we do not use that here. Any Ideas?

you can't uninstall winRM in windows 2008 R2. It's build in.

diabled AV with no luck.

so apparently using server manager, you cannot connect to a windows 2008 machine from a windows 2008 R2 machine "by design."

So I figured something else out that IPC$ is not enabled on my server. How do I enable this share?

I can get to \\servername\c$ but not \\servername\IPC$

it looks like you can't surf to that share by design as well. My issue apparently was a blocked tcp port.
