I have a CAS server in a different AD site, and every Exchange 2010 command runs quickly... except for the one that use IIS and Get-XXXVirtualDirectory. In these cases it takes several minutes for the results to come back.

Is this normal? Can I issue other commands in WinRM to see what the issue is?

My concern is that I forgot to configure something (or it's set wrong) and I'm timing out. I'd rather fix the issue now before it surprises me later on

There's nothing "wrong" here. All the Get-XXXVirtualDirectory commands query both AD and the IIS config - which is what's slowing things down.

As per, you can use the -ADPropertiesOnly switch to prevent querying IIS (across remote sites).
