Troubleshoot WinRM—The Video Part 1

Doctor Scripto

SummaryEd Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy, presents a video about troubleshooting WinRM (part 1).

Microsoft Scripting Guy, Ed Wilson, is here. Today I present a video where I talk a bit about troubleshooting WinRM. First I talk about looking at the WinRM logs, and then I talk about checking specific things such as:

  • Is the WinRM service responding?
  • Is the WinRM service running?
  • Is WinRM listening to the appropriate TCP ports?

Here is a link to the video from YouTube if you would like to download it or play it offline in a different video player (like stream it on your Xbox One like I do): Troubleshooting WinRM Part 1 by Ed Wilson.

I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you have any questions, send email to me at, or post your questions on the Official Scripting Guys Forum. See you tomorrow. Until then, peace.

Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy
