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.
