I am trying to run inspec winrm from a RHEL 7 server to try and connect to windows server with the following CLI command:
inspec exec SOME_BASELINE --host==WINDOWS_HOSTNAME --user=DOMAIN_USER --password=USER_PASSWORD --backend==winrm --reporter==json --chef_license accept
It shows the following error:
raise_if_wsman_fault: [WSMAN ERROR CODE: 2] <f:WSManFault Code='2' Machine='MACHINE_HOSTNAME' xmlns:f='http://schemas.microsoft.com/webm/wsman/1/wsmanfault'><f:Message> The WSMan service could not launch a host process to process the given request. Make sure the WSMan provider host server and proxy are properlyy registered. </f:Message></f:WSManFault> (winRM::winRMWSManFault)
The linux server is located outside of the domain and the windows server is in the domain. When running the same command from a windows server inside the same domain, with winrm to the other windows server, the command works fine.
Is there a way to make the inspec exec work in the linux server?
InSpec and Platform Version:
inspec version 4.23.11
