Unable to Connect to Exchange Management Shell after SP2 installation

Posted by Alan McBurney on September 12, 2012

After patching a number DAG nodes with SP2 I was unable to open the EMC from any of the mailbox servers.

The follow error was displayed


To resolve this issue I downloaded the Exchange Management Console Troubleshooter Tool EMTShooter

After running the tool it found an error and displayed the following


After reading through the possible solutions I discounted options 2 & 3 as these had already been investigated and the settings were correct.

So with that I settled on option 1.

After examining the GlobalModules of C:\Windows\System32\Inetsrv\config\ApplicationHost.config I could see that the entry for WSMan was indeed missing


I added the entry and closed the file


Refresh the EMC and viola, good as new.
