I’m trying to add a bunch of Hyper-V servers (WinRM) to our BFI environment. I’m using the same service account on each, it is a domain account and is in the local administrator’s group. All of the Hyper-V servers are joined to the same domain that the account resides in.
Of the 6 I’ve tried, 4 work fine. The other 2 report authentication failures, and when I have a look at the logs on those two servers I see that the domain & username are reversed.
I’ve tried configuring the username as domain\username, email@example.com, username@domain and domain.tld\username. The log shows login failures with this data no matter how I’ve had the username configured:
Account For Which Logon Failed:
Security ID: NULL SID
Account Name: domain.tld
Account Domain: accountname
Obviously domain.tld and account name are the actual values.
If I try to connect from the BigFix server with WinRM directly it works:
winrm enumerate winrm/config/listener /r:hypervserver /u:domain\accountname /p:accountpassword
And I see a successful login in the log with the correct credentials
Security ID: domain\accountname
Account Name: accountname
Account Domain: domain
I’ve tried removing the VM Manager and adding it back but get the same result.
Any ideas what’s going on here?
