To issue remote Shell commands from the UEM Console server, Windows environment must be installed and configured with PowerShell. By default the execution policy on Windows 2008 is set to the Restricted script execution mode.

Note: If your deployment consists of an on-premises Workspace ONE UEM server with Office 365, you must configure the Set-ExecutionPolicy on the Workspace ONE UEM server.

Note if VMware AirWatch Cloud Connector is not in use, then, both the UEM console and the Device Services server requires PowerShell connectivity to the Exchange server.


  1. Change the script execution mode from Restricted to RemoteSigned using the following Set-ExecutionPolicy command.
    PS C:\Windows\system32> Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
  2. Test the configured PowerShell by connecting to the server-side session.
