We have Exchange 2019 DAG and notice this messages keep appearing in server manager Manageability. However all nodes are added in all servers area so can we ignore this message?

Configuration refresh failed with the following error: The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The computed response packet size (519197) exceeds the maximum envelope size that is allowed (512000). <date> <time>

    Hi @IT Engineer ,

    Welcome to our Q&A forum!

    By research, this error message is commonly encountered when attempting to add roles and features to a server.

    To resolve this issue, you can try increasing the maximum envelope size of the WS-Management service. You can do this by modifying the registry settings of your server. Launch Registry Editor and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WSMAN\Client. Double-click on maxEnvelopeSize in the right pane, choose Decimal, and change the value to 8192. Then run the command below to check the result:

    Get-Item -Path WSMan:\localhost\MaxEnvelopeSizekb
