I had an annoying problem today while working with a fresh installation of Exchange Server 2010. Everything installed beautifully. But, when I went to open the Exchange Management Shell or the Exchange Management Console, I got this error:
VERBOSE: Connecting to hnlex05.somorita.local
[hnlex05.somorita.local] 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: (System.Manageme....RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) , PSRemotingTransportException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : PSSessionOpenFailed
After a more troubleshooting than I'm willing to admit, I found that the time on the Exchange server was wrong. The moral of the story? Don't forget the basics!
