"New-PSSession" Cmdlet Error in Windows PowerShell
Why I am getting the "new-pssession : [...] Connecting to remote server ... failed" error in Windows PowerShell?
Sometimes, when you try to create a PSSession on a remote computer, you get an error as shown in the following example:
PS C:\fyicenter> New-PSSession office-server new-pssession : [office-server] Connecting to remote server office-server failed with the following error message : The client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request. Verify that the service on the destination is running and is accepting requests. Consult the logs and documentation for the WS-Management service running on the destination, most commonly IIS or WinRM. If the destination is the WinRM service, run the following command on the destination to analyze and configure the WinRM service: "winrm quickconfig". For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic. At line:1 char:1 + new-pssession office-server + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : OpenError: (System.Manageme....RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) [New-PSSession], PSRemotingTransportException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CannotConnect,PSSessionOpenFailed
The main reason for this error is that the remote computer is not running Windows Remote Management (WinRM).
Follow the next tutorial to enable WinRM on the remote computer.
