Hi, I have had problems today running an install remotely. The script completed up until the point where it kicks off the ps remote sessions to configure additional servers.
Firstly, the machines had no internet so I had to download psexec from sysinternals website and copy into the installer directory. Are there multiple versions of this tool or should the version from the website be the correct one?
After copying in the file, I am eventually prompted to enter a password? It seems that the credentials are not being passed in properly in the line where new-psremotesession is kicked off. Any ideas why this would happen? Windows firewall is off on all servers
and I can ping all additional remote servers. When I do enter the password for the install account it just fails out.
This was one of the error messages I got:
Enter-PSSession : Connecting to remote 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
This is the current error:
the winrm client cannot process the request. the authentication mechanism requested by the client is not supported
