Hello all,

We have several RDS hosts (Windows Server 2008 R2), but only one is displaying this error message when opening the RD Session Host Configuration MMC:

"The settings for this Remote Desktop Session Host server cannot be retrieved. The remote server does not support running Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration tool remotely"

Things I've tried without success:

I'm out of ideas. Hope you're not!

Hello Sushil,

I had already tried winmgmt /salvagerepository and winmgmt /resetrepository followed by a reboot - no change.

I just ran a sfc /scan - no change.

It seems your WMI port are block Make sure your RDP and wmi port not block in network or firewall.

Keeping in mind that firewall policies are set by GP, and other RDS hosts can open the RD Session Host Configuration MMC without difficulty, on which server do you suggest that the firewall might be the problem?

Found it! From: http://www.ericwoodford.com/2014/02/wmi-failure-while-uninstalling-exchange.html

cd %windir%\system32\wbem
for /f %s in ('dir /b *.dll') do regsvr32 /s %s
regsvr32 %windir%\system32\tscfgwmi.dll
wmiprvse /regserver
winmgmt /verifyrepository  

REM Verify the above CMD ^^^ said that the repository was consistent
for /f %s in ('dir /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %s
net stop winmgmt
net start winmgmt

Awarding an A because:

- this was the only place that I found the critical ingredient: for /f %s in ('dir /b *.mof *.mfl') do mofcomp %s

- because it came from MS
