Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You run Windows Remote Management (WinRM) commands against a destination computer that is running Windows Server 2012 in a WinRM session.
  • The WinRM service on the destination computer restarts after the commands finish.
  • You run some more commands against the destination computer in the same WinRM session.

Cause

This issue occurs because of the interaction between a mechanism in WinRM that provides robustness to short-term network issues and the Microsoft Windows HTTP Services (WinHTTP) layers. �

Resolution

If rerunning the commands has no unwanted side effect, rerun the commands. Otherwise, check whether the commands were run on the destination computer. If they were not run, rerun the commands.�
