Hi I'm getting this powershell error when trying to connect exchange mailbox sensors

Last Message:

The Sensor can not connect to the Device using Remote-PowerShell. Ensure that remote management is enabled on the Exchange Server and the user-name and password is correct.

Hi there,

Have you checked the suggested points in the error message?
Ensure that remote management is enabled on the Exchange Server and the user-name and password is correct

Best regards.

Hi,

Yes, actually PRTG does in fact, every now and again, manage to connect. But shortly after successfully connecting the ActiveRunSpaces reaches the max allowed and the sonsors drop off again.

Hi there,

Have you tried to increase the amount of allowed Runspaces?

Best regards.

We got the same error code: Fail to create a runspace because you have exceeded the maximum number of connections allowed : 18 for the policy party : MaxConcurrency. Please close existing runspace and try again.

MaxShellsPerUser is set to 2147483647

Is there another setting to check?

Hi there,

You can try the following commands on the target system and PRTG system:

cd WSMan:\localhost\Plugin\microsoft.powershell\Quotas 
set-item MaxConcurrentUsers 100 
set-item MaxProcessesPerShell 10000 
set-item MaxShells 1000 
set-item MaxShellsPerUser 1000 
restart-service winrm 

Best regards.

Thanks for the fast answer. Every option got the value 2147483647.

I think the problem is the ThrottlingPolicy.

PowerShellMaxConcurrency and PswsMaxConcurrency got the value 18.

Could this be the problem? Is it safe to change this values?

Hi there,

You can surely change that, all that it does is to limit the amount of concurrent connections (as the options name indicates). If you set it not too high (like 100-200), then you shouldn't run into an issue.

Best regards.
