I tried running DSC on my server and got the error:
The client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request. Verify that the service on the destination is runn8ing and is accepting request. Consult the logs and the documentation for the WS-Management service running on the destination, most commonly IIS or WinRM. If the destination is the WinRM service, run the following command on the destination to analyze and configure the WinrRM service: “winrm quickconfig”.
This one is pretty easy to fix. The error message tells me to run winrm quickconfig. I try it and voila. Problem solved.
