For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.     + CategoryInfo          : OpenError: (System.Manageme….RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) [], PSRemotingTransportExc    eption     + FullyQualifiedErrorId : PSSessionOpenFailed


check: https://localhost/powershell

if it says module WinRM not found, edit C:WindowsSystem32InetsrvconfigApplicationHost.config file.

insert         <add name=”WSMan” image=”C:Windowssystem32wsmsvc.dll” />

under <globalmodules> section

may need to restart iis (iisreset in commandline). When running EMS it may take a while before finally connecting, then it’s plain sailing.
