Manually configuring the Windows Management Framework

Managed Workplace Onsite Managers will now be querying WMI over the WSManagement Protocol. If the WS-Management protocol is not available on a device, Managed Workplace Onsite Manager will revert to querying WMI over DCOM.

In order to utilize WS-Man, Windows Management Framework (WinRM 2.0) or greater must be installed. Below are the steps required to configure the Windows Management Framework manually on a device.

To determine the version of the Windows Management Framework

  1. Launch Command Prompt as Administrator.
  2. Run the following command and look for the version:
    PowerShell.exe Get-Host

Configuring WinRM 2.0

  1. Launch Command Prompt as Administrator.
  2. Run the following command and follow the prompts to enable WinRM:
    winrm quickconfig –q
  3. Run the following commands to apply the required configuration changes:
    winrm set winrm/config @{MaxEnvelopeSizekb = "2000"}
    winrm set winrm/config/client @{TrustedHosts="*"}
    winrm set winrm/config/client/auth @{Basic="true"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service @{EnumerationTimeoutms="240000"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service @{MaxConcurrentOperationsPerUser="1500"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service @{MaxConnections="50"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service/auth @{Basic="true"}

Configuring WinRM 3.0 or higher

  1. Launch Command Prompt as Administrator.
  2. Run the following command and follow the prompts to enable WinRM:
    winrm quickconfig –q
  3. Run the following commands to apply the required configuration changes:
    winrm set winrm/config @{MaxEnvelopeSizekb = "2000"}
    winrm set winrm/config/client @{TrustedHosts="*"}
    winrm set winrm/config/client/auth @{Basic="true"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service @{EnumerationTimeoutms="240000"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service @{MaxConcurrentOperationsPerUser="1500"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service @{MaxConnections="300"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service/auth @{Basic="true"}
    winrm set winrm/config/service @{AllowRemoteAccess = "true"}
