Hey Checkyourlogs Fans,
I am busy working away at my Windows Server 2019 Migration Labs and added some new Windows 2008 R2 Domain Controllers to the Lab. I figured wouldn’t it be cool to show off managing these with Windows Admin Center prior to Migrating them over to Azure or Windows Server 2019 on Prem.
Well, I hit a bit of a snap tonight with the following error.
The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The resource URI (http://schemas.dmtf.org/wbem/cim-xml/2/cim-schema/2/*) was not found in the WS-Management catalog. The catalog contains the metadata that describes resources or logical endpoints.
In checking, I found this website about prereqs for Windows Admin Center.
This document said to check for .Net Framework and Windows Management Framework 5.1
First, I checked the version of PowerShell installed.
Next, I Installed outstanding updates -> Still didn’t work
Then I installed .Net Framework 5.72 – Still didn’t work.
Then I installed Windows Management Framework 5.1.
Once finished, I rebooted the 2008 R2 VM.
And there it is with WMF 5.1 and a reboot Windows Admin Center is successfully able to manage Windows 2008 R2.
This is going to really help with my Migration Project.
