Access Denied error is thrown sometimes when connecting to an Exchange Server 2003 SP1 server. The cmd-let used to connect is:

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
$sessOpt = New-SessionOption -SkipCACheck -SkipCNCheck -SkipRevocationCheck
$credent = Get-Credential
$session = New-PSSession -SessionOption $sessOpt -Credential $cred -Authentication Kerberos -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionURI http://ex1/Powershell


System.Management.Automation.Remoting.PSRemotingTransportException: Connecting to remote server ex1.domain.com failed with the following error message : Access is denied. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic

The above error is thrown for few attempts and after sometimes it works. The same cycle repeats. Unable to find why the Access is denied for few attempts. Tested in different machines with same result.

  • Can you start the Cmdlet with the -Verbose parameter and post back the results? – Johan de Haan Apr 1 '15 at 10:59
  • @JohandeHaan Sorry for delayed reply. There are not Verbose prints found in the result. – Santron Manibharathi Apr 6 '15 at 10:08
