The issue I am having is with this sensor. I get the following error: Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : The WinRM client cannot complete the operation within the time specified. Check if the machine name is valid and is reachable over the network and firewall exception for Windows Remote Management service is enabled. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

I ran the WinRM quickconfig on 3 servers and only one is giving me an issue. I verified that the firewall rules are in place and when attempting to run the config again I get the message that everything is already working. Any ideas?

Issue resolved. I supplied the device with the fully qualified domain name vs the IP address the the senor pulled through.
