Message:
The attempt to connect to http://exchange.contoso.com’/powershell using ‘Kerberosauthentication failed: Connecting to the remote server failed with the following error message : WinRM cannot process the request…

#1
Close EMC. Open regedit and delete ‘NodeStructureSetting’  from registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ExchangeServer\v14\AdminTools.

#2
Make sure that the Kerbauth module (C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\Bin\kerbauth.dll) is not enabled on the default website but is, instead, enabled only for the PowerShell virtual directory.
AND
Make sure that the WSMan module (C:\Windows\system32\wsmsvc.dll) is registered but not enabled at the Server level.

  1. I tried this solution and it is not working? Nothing changed in myu environment. It’s just a small one server running Exchange 2010 in a VMWare workstation 9.0.2 environment.

    Any ideas?
    thanks.
