Exchange 2010 unable to open EMC or EMS SP3 RU8v2

Recently upgraded to SP3 RU8v2 and since then I have been unable to access my EMC or EMS.  

Get the following error in EMS:
VERBOSE: Connecting to exch.domain.local
[exch.domain.local] Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : The WinRM client cannot process the request. It cannot determine the content type of the HTTP response from the destination computer. The content type is absent or invalid. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
    + CategoryInfo          : OpenError: (System.Manageme....RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) [], PSRemotingTransportException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PSSessionOpenFailed

Get the following error in EMS:
The attempt to connect to http://exch.domain.loca/PowerShell using "Kerberos" authentication failed: COnnecting to remote server failed with the following message: The WinRM client cannot process the request.  It cannot determine the content type of the HTTP respond from the destination computer.  The content type is absent or invalid.  

No obvious errors in event viewer and email flow via outlook, smartphones, and OWA appears fine.

I get this every once and a while and the quickest fix that I have found is a quick iisreset

I have rebooted and done an issreset and neither have solved the issue.

Are you accessing the EMC and shell from the server or a workstation?  If from a workstation, did you install the rollup on the workstation?

I am accessing it from the server (it is a single exchange server).  I tried from another workstation with the rollup and get a WWW hasn't started error.
Hypercat (Deb)Commented:
It really sounds like this is an IIS issue.  IIS has to be running on the server in order for the management tools to work.  Check on your server and make sure that the IIS admin and WWW Publishing services are both running, as well as all required Exchange services.

Do you have any firewall rules that might be blocking communication? Also is the Windows Remote Management Service Started? Have you checked the logs Apps/System to see if there are any errors in there that can provide more detail as to why it might be failing?

jruskeyAuthor Commented:
All services are started.  Not much for event log errors.  After an ISSreset I get a WWW publishing service error and a Windows Activation Error.  I have recreated the powershell virtual directory and made sure settings are correct on that.
jruskeyAuthor Commented:
I did find the attached warning which lead me to here: which states to Replace all "file:///%ExchangeInstallDir%" with "file:///D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\" where D is the drive where Exchange is installed (mine is e:\exchange\ and I did perform that change.
jruskeyAuthor Commented:
I found I had made a change to the PowerShell Application pool to allow 32 bit applications from an earlier error I had.  Following my previous comment and this one I was able to get in.
