So I am kind of at a loss on this one and thought I'd reach out. I have a couple IT administrators in an international location who can't connect to Exchange to do remoting from their workstations, but they CAN from RDP sessions to machines that are in our headquarters. When using the simplified below code to connect to Exchange:
$server = '<serverName>'
$s = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri "http://$server/PowerShell/" -Authentication Kerberos
It connects fine and allows them to execute a few Exchange commands and then the PSSession breaks and when it goes to reconnect they get this error:
New-PSSession : [<serverName] Connecting to remote server <serverName> failed with the following error message : Access is denied. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooti
ng Help topic.
At line:1 char:6
+ $s = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://
+ CategoryInfo : OpenError: (System.Manageme....Remote
Runspace) [New-PSSession], PSRemotingTransportExcepti
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : AccessDenied,PSSessionOpen
What's interesting is that the initial session with the Exchange servers (version 2010 and 2013 report this..so PSv2 and v3) works just fine and it's only after the PSSession is broken is when this becomes an issue, so it's not a case where the user has rights.
The issues doesn't appear to be account specific since I can RDP into a computer in this office and experience the same problem even though from my normal workstation either across a VPN or even through a server in the central office it works just fine.
So I'm stuck on this one. This issue is effecting all of the IT folks in this international office who need to run Exchange cmdlets via remoting so it seems to be tied to the office (which makes me think it's a networking thing, but it only happens with Exchange remoting and only when the session is broken and the re-connection code is called).
