    Error scanning logfile /var/adm/messages on host us-net24.abcd.net as user scom; The client cannot connect to the remote host specified in the request. Verify that the service on the remote host is running and is accepting requests. You may use the following command to analyze the state of the WinRM service and to configure the service, if necessary: "winrm quickconfig".

  • Hi Orhan,

    Here is a note from the Cross Platform section of the OpsMgr Release Notes that may apply:

    WS-Man 1.1 requirement

    Operations Manager 2007 R2 requires WS-Man 1.1, also known as WinRM, to monitor computers that are running UNIX and Linux operating systems. WS-Man is a Web service-based protocol that enables remote computer management over HTTP and HTTPS, which includes hardware management and policy-based event forwarding. WS-Man 1.1 must be installed to facilitate communication between Operations Manager 2007 and UNIX or Linux computers.

    After you have installed WS-Man on the management server, configure it to use Basic Authentication. Run the following command: 

    If you do not configure WS-Man to allow Basic authentication, discovery of UNIX or Linux computers will fail.

    winrm set winrm/config/client/auth @{Basic="true"}
