I’ve started using chef so I apologize if this is the wrong mailing list for my questions or if what I am trying to do is unsupported. I’m trying to setup a windows server 2003 R2 machine and then connect to it through knife and winrm. I ran winrm quickconfig -q on the server and at first was getting an error about not enough end points or something about end points. Then I figured out that the windows firewall had to be turned on for the quickconfig to work. So I turned this on and now the server is setup for remote management. But when I try to connect to it and run ipconfig I get an error:
ERROR: Network Error: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. - connect(2)
The command I am running is:
knife winrm [server] ipconfig -m -x [localadmin] -P [password]
localadmin exists on the server as a local administrator
Can anyone help me or is it a winRM problem and I should ask on a different mailing list, or is it a knife problem that should be asked on a different mailing list?
