I set up a windows 2012 domain in a test lab to prepare for migrating us to a new 2012 domain in one of our environments.
I created a DC with DNS, DHCP, etc. That part went fine....
I then gave my user account enterprise admin and domain admin groups
I then created 2 new member server VMs.
I added them to server manager on the 2012 DC and I cannot remotely manage them or view any information or remote power access on them.
From server manager I see:
The metadata failed to be retrieved from the server due to the following error: the winRM client received an HTTP server error status 500.
I also see:
ONLINE - Data retrieval failures occured
If I launch powershell to another server it says:
servername failed with the following error message: the winRM client received an HTTP server error status 500 but the remote service did not include any other information about the cause of the failure.
FullyQualifiedErrorId: CreateRemote RunspaceFailed
I have WinRM enabled by default on these servers.
I appear to be missing something here....
What is needed to get this working?
It is possible that I am missing some roles or features that need to be installed but I am having problems finding out exactly what needs to be installed to make WinRM function.
