I have two Windows Server 2008 R2 machines. Server1 is running AD & Terminal Services, and Server2 is running Exchange 2010 SP1. They are both Domain Controllers.
A disk on Server2 suffered a disk error - and the RAID1 configuration was set up incorrectly - thus leaving me to reimage a new disk (hooray for inherited job roles). Note: The disk error will progressively get worse. The server can still function from it, but we cannot perform backups from it due to disk errors.
So I have performed a Bare Metal Recovery from the last backup we have to a new disk. My problem is now that Server2 will no longer connect to Server1 - however - when I log on to Server2 (from an older image) I can log in with the Administrator account's new password - which leads me to believe the servers can indeed talk to each other.
So when I open the Exchange Management Console it tells me there is an error:
The attempt to connect to http://Server2.local/PowerShell using "Kerberos" authentication failed: Connecting to the remote server failed with the following error message: The client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request. Verify that the service on the destination is running and is accepting requests. Consult the logs and documentation for the WS-Management service running on the destination to analyze and configure the WinRM service: "winrm quickconfig". For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
So I performed
winrm quickconfig and it returns:
WinRM already is set up to receive requests on this machine. WinRM already is set up for remote management on this machine.
I was also under the impression that performing a bare metal recovery would simply restore the entire system to how it was in the image. Have I misunderstood this method of backup? I have performed a Google search and that has yielded many different problems, but none that seem specific to my scenario (and a lot of them seem to be outdated).
So what should I do to enable my Exchange Server to get online again? Am I missing something blindingly obvious?
Edit: System times are the same (kind of - they are within about a third of a second of eachother)
Update - I now have a new issue:
The following error occurred while attempting to connect to the specified Exchange server 'Server2.local':
The attempt to connect to http://server2.local/PowerShell using "Kerberos" authentication failed: Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message: Access is denied. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
I am stumped here. Thoughts?
