it states tha the EMC:

The attempt to connect to using "Kerberos" authentication failed: Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message:  Access is denied. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshootinig help topic.

    Hello,    there could be more than one reason for this error message. You can start by ruling out a few possibilities so that you can zero in to the problem. Here are a couple of resolved cases, these will either fix your problem or tell us to move to the next possibilities.

    I Have had a look at all of the above and i have found the solution i think.  there was a network time error which was causing the remote powershell module to throw out the kerberos error.  I have adjusted the time and its now working again.  The time was the same as the NTP server but forcing the exchange box to update has fixed the issue.

    thansk for all of your help/
