Windows Management Framework (WMF) 3.0 on Windows Small Business Server 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have install a Windows Server 2012  in a Windows Small Business Server 2011 (dutch version) network. I have setup the Windows Server 2012 as a RD-session server. Only I cannot connect with the server console with the SBS server, so it is not possible to select the RD-gateway services on the SBS server. I get a message that WinRM 3.0-service is not installed. I have search, but WinRM 3.0 is not installed on the SBS server.  When is Windows Management Framework 3.0 available for Windows Small Business Server 2011? 

    I have see that the Windows Server 2008 (R2) version is always available:

    Maybe is it possible to install the Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 version. Maybe someone here have experience with.

    Regards,

    Nico Hendriks

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    WMF 3.0 was released for Windows Server 2008 SP2 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. For more information, you may refer to the following article.

    In addition, this issue is more related to SBS server. So, I would recommend that you repost this issue at SBS forum. Your understanding is highly appreciated.
