Exchange 2010 Management Console Initialization Failed: The WS-Management service cannot process the request

Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP2 Update Rollup 6

I recently ran across a small problem while trying to open the Exchange 2010 Management Console. I received an initialization failure error message.

 

The full error message is below:
“The attempt to connect to http://server/Powershell user ‘Kerberos’ authentication failed: Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message: The WS-Management service cannot process the request. The system load quota of 1000 requests per 2 seconds has been exceeded. Send future requests at a slower rate or raise the quota for this user. The next request from this user will not be approved for at least xx milliseconds.”

To resolve the problem, I opened a command prompt and ran iisreset.

Command Promotp - iisreset

    Thanks for the command. It works for me but you will need to have
    administrator rights to run the command.
