SBS 2003 - 2011 Migration, Unable to turn off Old server


  • Hi, I have recently completed the SBS Migration, all went well, until i went to test if the server worked with the old server disconnected

    No E-Mail is getting through and i cant access the Console.

    Console error is "The attempt to connect to httP:\\xxxx.xx.xx\Powershell using "Kerberos" authentication failed: Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message: The WinRM client received an HTTP server error status (500), but the remote service did not include any other information about the cause of the failure. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

    Also cant load the Powershell modules

    Exchange has been uninstalled off the old server.

    It has not yet been demoted.

    My thoughts are that the new server is still trying to authenticate with the old server

    I manually forced the fixed DC and GC settings via powershell

    If i turn the old server back on, it all starts working again.

    I am now at the 21 day limit and the old server will start shutting down so need a fix for this asap

    In the Services console on the new server, Transport, throttling, information store etc are hung in "starting" state

    Any help greatly appreciated

  • I got it sorted in the end.,

    IPV6 had been disabled on the server, once that was re-enabled all started working as normal.
