I'm trying to get EasySync Configurator to sync our AD with Live@Edu but I cannot get it to work. I hit "run EasySync" which tries to connect and I get this eror message:
I have ran "winrm quickconfig" and still no joy.
[ps.outlook.com] Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message : The client cannot connect to the
destination specified in the request. Verify that the service on the destination is running and is accepting requests.
Consult the logs and documentation for the WS-Management service running on the destination, most commonly IIS or WinR
M. If the destination is the WinRM service, run the following command on the destination to analyze and configure the W
inRM service: "winrm quickconfig". For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.
+ CategoryInfo : OpenError: (System.Manageme....RemoteRunspace:RemoteRunspace) , PSRemotingTransportExc
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : PSSessionOpenFailed
I have also tried these commands in powershell:
and I get the same error as above.
$LiveCred = Get-Credential
<Type in the credentials of an account in your tenant>
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic –AllowRedirection
As I didn't configure Live@Edu and enroll the school I'm a little unsure of what's wrong.
I'm using our networks systemadmin account credentials when I type "$LiveCred = Get-Credential." Is this correct or is there another account I should be using?
It is a possibility SWGFL is blocking ps.outlook.com as it needs access to port 443. Can anyone clarify this one way or the other? (We do use Smoothwall [G3] but I'm bypassing this so that shouldn't be blocking access.)
Anyone encountered this error before?
Any help is much appreciated
