I've tried to connect to PowerShell however I get following errors. There is a URL rewrite redirection but not for the Powershell sub and even if disabled, still doesn't work. SSL certificate is issued for both URLs and ECP and other virtual sub directories are working fine.

VERBOSE: Connecting to exchange.company.uni.edu.au.
New-PSSession : [exchange.company.uni.edu.au] The WinRM service cannot process the request because the request needs
to be sent to a different machine. Use the redirect information to send the request to a new machine.  Redirect
location reported: https://exchange.company.uni.edu.au/powershell?serializationLevel=Full;ExchClientVer=15.0.516.32;c

0Z6b0YqOipGWkJHRio7RmpuK0Z6Kgc7Gy87GxsnPzMmBzc3Qzs7Qzc/OzN/LxczIxc/L376y . To automatically connect to the redirected
URI, verify the "MaximumConnectionRedirectionCount" property of the session preference variable "PSSessionOption", and
use the "AllowRedirection" parameter on the cmdlet.

I would start by removing all redirection across the entire server to begin with, because something with that configuration is getting in the way.

What is the purpose of the redirection/rewrite?

I've tried that - didn't help. Redirection is only http to https

Did you run iisreset after removing the redirection?
Do you have a proxy on the network?

Hi Simon,

no but I was able to resolve it. I unticked all of the redirection (which didn't help) so then I deleted the rule from URL rewrite, restarted the IIS, and it worked. Then I re-enabled it as it was before and it still is working.

Not sure what has changed but assuming that webconfig file was updated incorrectly or something so removing the rule solved it for me.
