  • Hi,

    can you tell me if you install exchange in physical or virtual server ?

    there are meny issue for this topic :

    1. IIS kerberos authentication : Remote PowerShell uses Kerberos to authenticate the user connecting. IIS implements this Kerberos authentication method via a native module. In IIS Manager, if you go to the PowerShell Virtual Directory and then look at the Modules, you should see Kerbauth listed as a Native Module, with the dll location pointing to C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\Bin\kerbauth.dll. If the Kerbauth module shows up as a Managed module instead of Native, or if the Kerbauth module has been loaded on the Default Web Site level (instead of, or in addition to, the PowerShell virtual directory), you can experience this issue.

    To correct this, in IIS make sure that the Kerbauth module is not enabled on the Default Web Site, but is only enabled on the PowerShell virtual directory. The entry type of "Local" indicates that the Kerbauth module was enabled directly on this level, and not inherited from a parent.

    2. version of powershell and WInRM used

    3. If you use a virtual instance, try to desactivate time synchronization with the physical Computer ( from HyperV management console for exemple ) and synchronize with your DC
