Can't Connect to WinRM on Server 2008

I am unable to connect to my PDC running Win 2008 R2 using Server Manager v.6.3 (on my Win 8.1 box). I am able to connect to my BDC (also running win 2008 R2) with no problems.

I have run Winrm QC in PowerShell and received the following message:

WinRM already is setup to receive requests on this machine.
WinRM already is set up for remote management on this machine.

The message i receive in Server Manager when i try to refresh is:

Configuration refresh failed with the following error: The metadata failed to be retrieved from the server due to the followin error: The WS-Management service cannot process the request.


The Windows firewall is disabled by Group Policy, but i have opened the ports for WinRM by running WinRM QuickConfig on the server.

I have tried telneting to the server on port 5895 and it seems to be open. I've tried following all sorts of different guides but nothing fixes it.

There is no such thing as PDC and BDC anymore, but i like that it tells me that you have been around servers for a while :)

can you remote manage the server from the other server? Trying to narrow fault down to client or server.

Really? No more PDC's? What do you call your primary controller when you have replication turned on?

I will try managing from the other server. Should i use the Remote Manage program or some other means to attempt?

Thanks.

no more PDC or BDC. They are all just DC and there are FSMO roles that can be held by one DC or split between a couple.

use Remote Manage, the same as you do from you win8 client.

I can't figure out how or where to do this on my Server 2008 box.
