  1. Thanks for pulling this together. One Problem I had was I used powershell to run the WinRM. This produces an error message

    “Error: Invalid use of command line. Type “winrm -?” for help.”

    switching back to cmd.exe allowed the commands to run as expected.

  2. you need to enclose the option in single quotes if executing from PowerShell:

    winrm set winrm/config/service/auth ‘@{Kerberos=”true”}’
    winrm set winrm/config/service ‘@{AllowUnencrypted=”true”}’

    I encountered one more issue with file /etc/krb5.conf.
    vCO Server was reading values from this file. So I renamed it and my PowerShell host was added successfully with Kerberos Authentication.

    1. Actually, none of these seem to work for me. I can either input this at in a CMD window, or run Rahul’s version above, it spits out the same error: Syntax Error: input must be of the form {KEY=”VALUE”[;KEY=”VALUE”]}
