The aboutRemoteTroubleshooting topic needs to be updated for 2012 (R2). The group policy setting name has changed:
Allow automatic configuration of listeners (2008 R2)
Allow remote server management through WinRM (2012 R2)
The policy name appears twice in the help text:
-- To configure listeners for remoting, enable the "Allow automatic
configuration of listeners" group policy. For instructions, see
"How to Enable Listeners by Using a Group Policy" (below).
HOW TO ENABLE LISTENERS BY USING A GROUP POLICY
ERROR: ACCESS IS DENIED
- or -
ERROR: The connection to the remote host was refused. Verify that the
WS-Management service is running on the remote host and configured to
listen for requests on the correct port and HTTP URL.
To configure the listeners for all computers in a domain, enable the "Allow
automatic configuration of listeners" policy in the following Group Policy
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components
\Windows Remote Management (WinRM)\WinRM service
Enable the policy and specify the IPv4 and IPv6 filters. Wildcards (*) are
Product Studio item created by Connect Synchronizer due to creation of feedback ID 1186090 (http://connect.microsoft.com/PowerShell/feedback/ViewFeedback.aspx?FeedbackID=1186090).
On a 2012 R2 server, edit a group policy and browse to Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Windows Components \ Windows Remote Management (WinRM) \ WinRM service.
Expect to find: Allow automatic configuration of listeners. Actually find: Allow remote server management through WinRM.
