Initialization Failure of Management Console on Exchange Server 2010 R1.

I am not able to open the Exchange Management Console, and I receive the following message:
 
The following error occurred while attempting to connect to the specified Exchange server 'NewServer.Business.local':
The attempt to conncct to http://NewServer.Business.local/PowerShell using "Kerberos" authentication failed: Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : The WinRM dient sent a request to an HTTP server and got a response saying the requested HTTP URL was not available. This is usually returned by a HTTP server that does not support the WS-Management protocol. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshootjng Help topic.


Any help Please?

I worked it around!

I opened IIS and Default Web Site, and then clicked Edit Bindings and then deleted the following:

http              80        127.0.0.1
https           443       127.0.0.1

After that, the Exchange Management Console opened, and finished connecting.

The Exchange Management Shell also worked fine.

Does Exchange Shell open fine ?
How many Exchange servers do you have ?
Are all Exchange services running ?

Rancy,

I have four Exchange Servers.

No!! the Exchange Management Shell says:
Failed to connect to an Exchange server in the current site.
Enter the server FQDN where you want to connect..

All Exchange services are running normally!!

After all, I found out that the
Default Web Site
in the IIS Manager,

IS NOT RUNNING!!

....and when I manually force it to start it answers that:

"This Web site cannot be started. Another Web sate may be usng the same port"

Therefore the Exchange Management Console although it opens, it never finishes connecting or is usable!!

Neither the Exchange Management Shell works, saying:

"Failed to connect to an Exchange server in the current site.
Enter the server FQDN where you want to connect."!!

ANY CLUE FOR THAT TO WORK IT AROUND???

Costas.
