RSA Product Set: SecurID
RSA Product/Service Type: Authentication Agent for Web
RSA Version/Condition: 8.0
The Microsoft Exchange Management Console or PowerShell is unable to connect to the exchange server and shows the following error:
Connecting to remote server <server_name.domain_name.com> failed with the following error : The WinRM client received an HTTP status code of 403 from the remote WS-Management service.
The Microsoft PowerShell directory is protected by SecurID authentication. The Exchange Management Console/PowerShell does not handle the HTTP response from RSA agent to prompt for passcode.
The work around to this issue is to disable protection of the PowerShell directory under the website being protected.
From the IIS Manager,
- Navigate to <name of the server> > Sites > Default Web Site > PowerShell.
- Uncheck the option to protect this resource with RSA SecurID.
