Monitor Failure Saying that it Cannot Connect to Port 5985

Home Support Server Monitoring Monitor Failure Saying that it Cannot Connect to Port 5985

Windows monitoring & management now requires that WinRM (Remote PowerShell) is enabled on your Windows servers. If you get a failure message from a monitor saying that it cannot connect to port 5985, you must enable WinRM on the target server by running the PowerShell command “winrm quickconfig”.

Note: For legacy Windows machines like 2008 R2 please check to see what version of PowerShell is running. You many need to update to the latest version.

Run the Powershell command $PSVersionTable to determine what PowerShell version running.
