Failed to open Exchange 2010 mangement console

We failed to open Exchange 2010 mangement console after install 2008 R2 SP1.

Error Message:

Initialization failed
The following error occurred when retrieving user information for 'domain\Administrator':
Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message: The WinRM client cannot process the request. It cannot determine the content type of the HTTP response from the destination computer. The content type is absent or invalid. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

Any idea how to fix it or any log could help to narrow the cause?

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.

Better re-install the Exchange Management console, to save the time
