"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Krishna PatilCommented:
can you give try with following steps
1) create user named 'EmcTest'
2) run following command on exchange powershell
Set-User EmcTest -RemotePowerShellEnabled:$True
3) Make this user member of 'Administrators','schemna admins',Organization Management, Enterprise admins, Domain Admins, Schema Admins, Built-in Administrators, Group policy Creator Owners.

4) Install WinRM IIS extention from server manager and Run following command on Windows powershell
'WinRM Quickconfig' and Yes to all questions

5) Reboot machine and login to machine by 'EMCTEST' user.

6) Launch Exchange Management Console.

The proxy problem.
http://blog.sembee.co.uk/post/A-New-Take-on-the-Exchange-Management-Shell-Startup-Keberos-Error.aspx

Although do try using another user with an admin account as well. It isn't unusual for this to be profile specific.

its a many region if your server is running on hyper-v then first change time synchronization option. Make sure it will be done only after shutdown machine.

yourtechteamAuthor Commented:

Please check whether "WinRM IIS Extension" is installed in the Server Manager->Feature. If not, please install it.

Please also try to use another member of Organization Management to log on to Exchange to open EMC to test.

Hi,

Please check whether "WinRM IIS Extension" is installed in the Server Manager->Feature. If not, please install it.

And then add the user in member of Server manager,'Organization Management' Active Directory security group.

If issue not fixed after doing this all, please let us know for the below details.
what is the status of IIS and WWW
also WS management server
service
And then check the eventvwr.

Thanks

In addition, if you have EventID: 10113

Possible Causes

1. The ExchangeInstallPath variable may be missing.

Check in the System Properties, Environment variables, and look under the System variables. You should see a variable of ExchangeInstallPath with a value pointing to C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\.

2. The Path of the Powershell virtual directory has been modified.

The PowerShell virtual directory must point to the \Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\ClientAccess\PowerShell directory or you will encounter problems.

If you have problems or something is not setup properly in you IIS Default Website, you are not going to be able to use EMC.  So if possible, change everything back to default/original values....
