    • Go to the Start menu and right-click the cmd.exe and then select Run as Administrator.
    1. Enter the following in the command prompt:
             winrm quickconfig
              winrm set winrm/config/client @{TrustedHosts="*"}
    2. On the target server, open a command prompt as an Administrator and enter the following:
             winrm quickconfig
              winrm set winrm/config/client @{TrustedHosts="IP_ADDRESS"}

       where IP address is the IP address of your SAM server.
