Configuring WinRM

4 posts in this topic

Posted

I'm trying to connect to my VM via WinRM, I can successfully, but only if it's name is in my TrustedHosts settings as it is not on a domain.

Is there a way that I can configure WinRM to not care what is in my TrustedHosts without it being a security risk? I have a lot of VMs, and I don't want to add each one into TrustedHosts.

When I try to use HTTPS instead, it tells me that I need a certificate with the CN as my own hostname installed. Is there a way to force it to use HTTP?

Regards,
David.

When you are connecting to your host from anywhere without being part of the domain or TrustedHosts list or using https, you are basically sacrificing security to a degree.

You may choose to use TrustedHosts = * which will allow anybody, but ensure only the privildge ones are members of that group. On the other hand, if "Domain" is not an option, consider https with a certificate your company already maybe using for VPN purpose. Just a thought ..
