WinRM Breaks when using IP Listen

Posted on 2014-08-08

Last Modified: 2016-06-12
I have an Exchange 2013 server that has another 3party web server.  I use HTTP IPListen to enable the other apps to use an assigned IP, however when I do this it partially breaks my Exchange Management Shell.  Here is the info:

IP addresses present in the IP listen list:
------------------------------------------- (new LAN on Exchange server) (3rd party web server)

Error when opening shell:

VERBOSE: Connecting to FresNet10.fresnonetworks.com.
New-PSSession : [fresnet10.fresnonetworks.com] Connecting to remote server fresnet10.fresnonetworks.com failed with
the following error message : The WS-Management service does not support the request. For more information, see the
about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

VERBOSE: Connected to FRESNET7.fresnonetworks.com.
[PS] C:\Windows\system32>

Any ideas?

Pretty sure that is an unsupported configuration.

The only way I can think it would work is a second NIC, so that you can disable the IP address being put in to the DNS entry within the domain.

I wouldn't run another web server on an Exchange server though - just asking for trouble. Another IIS web site is fine, but other web services (usually meaning Apache) just cause problems.
