Using Fully Qualified Names in Remoting

by Feb 13, 2014

When you try PowerShell Remoting, you may run into connection errors just because your machine name was not fully qualified. Kerberos authentication may or may not needs this, depending on your DNS configuration.

So maybe you get errors when you try and connect like this:

Enter-PSSession -ComputerName storage1 

When that happens, try and ask DNS for the fully qualified name:

Then, try this name instead. If remoting is enabled and set up correctly, you should now be able to connect.
