Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Just installed SBSB 2011 and want to confgure exchange but I am getting the following error when trying to click on Microsoft Exchange On_Premises in the EMS:

Initialization Failed

The following error occurred while searching for the on-premises Exchange server:

[fileserver.domain.local] Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message: THe client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request.  Verfiy that the service on the destination is running and is accepting requests.  Consult the logs and documentation for the WS-Manangement service running on the destination, most commonly IIS or WinRM service: "winrm quickconfig".  For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.  It was running the command 'Discover-ExchangeServer-UseWIA $true -SupressError $tru -CurrentVersion 'Version 14.1 (Build 218.15)".

Any idea on what is happening?  Obviusly I can''t configure exchange.
