Windows Server 2019 Enable-psremoting fails

Windows 2019 Data Center
Windows 10 Pro

From my windows 10 Pro  desktop I open PowerShell as administrator

Ru this command
Invoke-Command -computer -ScriptBlock {get-service -name patches}

get this error

[] Connecting to remote server failed with the following
error message : Access is denied. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
    + CategoryInfo          : OpenError: ( [], PSRemotingTransportException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : AccessDenied,PSSessionStateBroken

On the Windows 2019 Server  I ran this

PS C:\Users\administrator> winrm quickconfig
WinRM service is already running on this machine.
WinRM is already set up for remote management on this computer.

PS C:\Users\administrator> Enable-psremoting
PS C:\Users\administrator>

the enable-psremoting never prompts run for a minute then ends with no indication

At ideas?

Thank you thanks worked great

This server was on another domain and that domain is a trusted domain so I added my domain admins to the local administrators group and now I do not need the $creds

Thanks again for leading me into the correct place.
