Our AD server is connected to our server via RSAT server.

When we are trying to run the AD commands by doing PSRemoting on RSAT server we are not able to get the desired results.
But when we run same commands on RSAT server directly we can see the result.

We have all ports open and we are able to do PS Remoting on RSAT server successfully.

We are seeing below error:

WARNING: Error initializing default drive: 'Unable to contact the server. This may be because this server does
not exist, it is currently down, or it does not have the Active Directory Web Services running.'.
Unable to contact the server. This may be because this server does not exist, it is currently down, or it does not have the Active Directory Web Services running.

  • CategoryInfo : ResourceUnavailable: ( [Get-ADComputer], ADServerDownException
  • FullyQualifiedErrorId : ActiveDirectoryServer:0,Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.Commands.GetADComputer + PSComputerName :

We are trying it for first time.

Thanks and Regards,
Kshitij

    That looks like a "second hop" issue. See here: ps-remoting-second-hop
