Server Manager on Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

I am planning to use Server Manager on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit to connect to my Windows 2008 R2 Standard 64-bit server. Updates on my Windows 2008 firewall don’t solve my problem.

This is the error message that says Server Manager cannot connect to my other PC.

What’s the proper way to make a connection like this one?

Service Manager

Service Manager cannot connect to tgcs010.Click

Retry to try to connect again.

Connecting to remote server failed with the following error

message : The WinRM dent cannot complete the operation

within the time specified. Click if the machine name is valid

and is reachable over the network and firewall exception for

Windows Remote Manager Service is enabled. For more

Hallo Alice,

That error you are getting usually happens because the WinRM is has not been set up to allow remote access to that server for management. You will need to check that by running the Powershell command on the server that you cannot be able connect to remotely that follows:

winrm quickconfig

To resolve the issue, you will have to make sure that psremoting has been enabled, and you will do that by running the Powershell command that follows:


You should make sure that you launch the powershell by right clicking it and after that choose “Run as Administrator”.

After that you will need to run “winrm quickconfig” again.
