Problem Installing GFI mail essentials on Exchange 2K13
Posted on 2014-01-02
We have a new exchange 2013 server and I'm trying to install an evaluation copy of GFI mail essentials for exchange. The installation went successfully, however no emails are being read by the spam filters.
I've contacted GFI support about this issue and they told me to look at the logs which revealed this error:
Info: Invoking Command : Get-TransportAgent -TransportService Hub -Identity 'GfiAsRtRoutedAgent'"
error: IsAgentRegistered exception: Connecting to remote server ea2 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. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic."
Unfortunately GFI support has not seen this issue and really didn't know how to fix it. What is strange about this problem to me is that the EMS also uses WinRM and it is working fine.
I've tried the following fixes with no luck:
Restarted the WinRM service
Uninstalled/reinstall the WinRM feature
Ensured that the DC and the exchange servers times are synced
Ensured that the Kerbauth module is installed and native in the PS virtual directory
Set authentication to anonymous for PS vir directory
Set SSL to not required for PS virtual directory.
I'm really not sure where to proceed next. Any ideas would be helpful.
