WinRM and Exchange Management Console/Shell Issues

I hope an Expert came across this issue before. In a middle of migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010
Exchange 2010 SP3 Rollup 8v2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Ent Edition
Issue started about 4 days after SAN certificate was installed on the new Exchange 2010 server.
No other known issue before this issue.

EMC/EMS Error message
1-EMC and EMS won't start.
2-Microsoft Exchange Information Store service is hung at "strating" but never starts.
MS Information Store Service
 I already checked the items  listed below and  everything is as it is recommended therefore I did not make any modification:

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

I was finally able to solve this issue after several days of research.

 Both EMC and EMS are now working. It has been a hell of adventure which took me to several paths with some related to the real issue, and others related to the misleading error messages from which I also learned  a great deal of Exchange troubleshooting.

I am far from being an Expert on Exchange but this was a eye opener for me and I surely agree with Niels Bohr who argues that "An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.”  

It was priceless for me to have a Dell M6800 with 32 GB of memory, and 2TB of SSD Hybrid labtop with an image of both Exchange 2010 and 2003, plus my DC into VMware workstation for extensive testing. A perfect identical clone of my Prod which yield great Exchange experiences within a short period of time.
