Hi guys,

I ran into an issue creating the virtual directory as described. I get an error stating the following:

New-PowerShellVirtualDirectory : An error occurred while creating the IIS virtual directory ‘IIS://servername.domain.local/W3SVC/1/ROOT/PowerShell’ on ‘server’.

New-PowerShellVirtualDirectory -Name PowerShell -RequireSSL:$False
CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (server\P…fault Web Site):ADObjectId) [New-PowerShellVirtualDirectory],

and so on.

Any suggestions?

Ok, i have resolved my previous issue by manually creating the MSExchangePowerShellAppPool in IIS. Apparently it was missing. I then manually created the PowerShell virtual directory and matched it's settings to another server i had for comparison.

I'm now receiving and error that states:

Processing data for remote command failed with the following error message: WinRM cannot complete the operation. Verify that the specific computer name is valid, that the computer is accessible over the network, and that the firewall exception for the WinRM service is enabled and allows access from this computer. By default, the WinRM firewall exception for public profiles limits access to remote computer within the same local subnet.

This morning, out of morbid curiosity, I checked the Exchange Management Console. Turns out over the weekend the stars aligned just right and now it's working again. I can safely say that nothing was changed, and no reboots happened over the weekend. I can only guess that some kind of maintenance cleared the issue. Whether it was the Kerberos keychain or something else, I don't know.

If anyone has any ideas as to what could have happened, I would love to know for future reference.

Thanks all!
