    Hi Guys,
    Could someone help me to create a local PS Session for an exchange host. The below is my current lab config.

    Host OS : win 8.1 (PS 4.0)
    Exchange 2010 (Server 2008R2 OS (PS 2.0)) installed on Hyper-V with 2 node DAG.
    Host OS is not a member of the domain (This DC is also installed on Hyper-V)

    The below is the code I am trying. Please help me to get the correct code and suggest any other changes to be made.

    $s = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Authentication Kerberos -credential $cred
    Import-PSSession $s


    New-PSSession : [] Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : WinRM cannot process the request. The following error with errorcode
    0x80090311 occurred while using Kerberos authentication: There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
     Possible causes are:
      -The user name or password specified are invalid.
      -Kerberos is used when no authentication method and no user name are specified.
      -Kerberos accepts domain user names, but not local user names.
      -The Service Principal Name (SPN) for the remote computer name and port does not exist.
      -The client and remote computers are in different domains and there is no trust between the two domains.
     After checking for the above issues, try the following:
      -Check the Event Viewer for events related to authentication.
      -Change the authentication method; add the destination computer to the WinRM TrustedHosts configuration setting or use HTTPS transport.
     Note that computers in the TrustedHosts list might not be authenticated.
       -For more information about WinRM configuration, run the following command: winrm help config. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

    Don Jones

    It's telling you that it can't find a domain controller that the server will trust to handle the authentication.
