Q7260110: How to enable WinRM on Windows domain member servers in a Windows Active Directory Domain?

To enable WinRM on Windows member servers in a Windows Active Directory Domain, you can use a Group Policy Object (GPO):

  1. Create a new GPO: Open the Group Policy Management Console and create a new GPO linked to the domain or an appropriate Organizational Unit (OU) that contains your domain member servers.
  2. Configure the GPO: Edit the GPO and navigate to Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Remote Management (WinRM) > WinRM Service. Enable the policy "Allow automatic configuration of listeners".
  3. Apply the GPO: Refresh Group Policy on all target servers or wait for the next Group Policy refresh interval to occur.
  4. Verify WinRM is enabled: Open a command prompt on one of the target servers and run the command:
    winrm enumerate winrm/config/listener"
    This should show at least one listener is configured and ready to receive incoming WinRM requests.

Note: WinRM is enabled by default on Windows Server 2012 and later, but if it's not enabled on your servers, this process will help you enable it.
