Windows 2012 Server manager Manageability Report

Windows 2012 R2 Standard DC
Windows 2008 R2 Standard

On Server Manager Dashboard I added all my servers 2008 and 2012

Under All Servers I have a Manageabily Error displayed

Error      SERV025 : Configuration refresh failed with the following error: The metadata failed to be retrieved from the server, due to the following error: WinRM cannot complete the operation. Verify that the specified computer name is valid, that the computer is accessible over the network, and that a firewall exception for the WinRM service is enabled and allows access from this computer. By default, the WinRM firewall exception for public profiles limits access to remote computers within the same local subnet.       6/19/2015 10:18:18 AM

Serv025 is a Windows 2008 R2 Standard

On SERV025 I the firewall I enabled ALL for "Web management service (HTTP Traffic-IN)

No change

What am I missing?
