Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What should I do if "Access is denied" error message shown?

Possible Reasons

  • User name / Password is not valid.
  • Remote Server machine's PowerShell Remoting might be disabled. So it doesn't allow the user to make use of Remote PowerShell feature.

Solutions

  • Re-check your credentials and try again. [Also, ensure this user account have all necessary privileges mentioned in here ]
  • In remote machine (SharePoint Server machine), open the PowerShell as administrator and run the below command

Note:

In case of your Remote machine (SharePoint Server machine) and Client machine (SharePoint Manager Plus installed machine) being in different domains, run the below commands in the client machine, opening the PowerShell as administrator,

    • Enable-PSRemoting -Force
    • Set-Item WsMan:\localhost\client\trustedhosts - Value [FullyQualifiedDomainName of the remote machine] -Concatenate -Force
    • Restart-Service WinRM

 

2. "Cannot access the farm" error message displayed. What should I do??

Possible Reasons

  • User account used might not have all the privileges needed for a farm administrator.
  • Authentication currently used is not supported by Remote Machine. It does not delegate the user to another machine to access the database ( i.e. Database server mostly)

Solutions

  • Click here to check all the needed privileges and configure them accordingly.
  • Enabling the CredSSP Authentication in remote and client machine solves the issue. In Remote machine (SharePoint Server machine), open PowerShell as administrator and run the following command,

    Enable-PSRemoting -Force

    Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role Server -Force

    In client machine ( SharePoint Manager Plus machine), open PowerShell as administrator and run the following command,

    Enable-PSRemoting -Force
    Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role Client -DelegateComputer
    [FullyQualifiedDomainName of the Remote machine] -Force

Note:

In case of your Remote machine (SharePoint Server machine) and Client machine (SharePoint Manager Plus installed machine) being in different domains, run the below commands in the client machine, opening the PowerShell as administrator, (Ignore this if you had already done this step)

    • Enable-PSRemoting -Force
    • Set-Item WsMan:\localhost\client\trustedhosts - Value [FullyQualifiedDomainName of the remote machine] -Concatenate -Force
    • Restart-Service WinRM

 

3. What should I do if "Remote/Local PowerShell Settings required in order to add farm" error message shown?

Possible Reasons

  • Either Local or Remote PowerShell Configuration is not done properly. This also happens when your remote machine has no trust on the client machine.

Solutions

Run the below commands in Client machine's PowerShell as administrator,

    • Enable-PSRemoting -Force
    • Set-Item WsMan:\localhost\client\trustedhosts - Value [FullyQualifiedDomainName of the remote machine] -Concatenate -Force
    • Restart-Service WinRM

 

Run the below command in Remote machine's PowerShell as administrator,

  • Enable-PSRemoting -Force

4. "PowerShell Version is less than 2" error shown. What should I do?
