To configure hosts for PowerShell remote communication:

  1. Configure WinRM to accept remote requests on each host running an VMware Smart Assurance product (for example, Failover Manager, Service Assurance Manager, Domain Managers, Trap Exploder, and Trap Adapter). Type the following command:

    powershell enable-psremoting
    
  2. Add the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) for the Failover Manager host to the TrustedHosts list on each VMware Smart Assurance Manager host. For example, type the following command as one line:

    powershell Set-Item wsman:\localhost\Client\TrustedHosts itops-qa-148.lss.emc.com -Concatenate -Force
    
  3. Add the FQDN for each VMware Smart Assurance Manager host to the TrustedHosts list on the Failover Managers host.
