Error opening Exchange Management Console (EMC) "The client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request."

Last week I ask by my client to create mailbox on mail server, we are using Exchange server 2010 for mail server, so I remote to the server to doing the request but I have problem when I opening EMC and connect to the server, I can’t connect to the server via EMC even I can’t connect to exchange server using shell, bellow is the screen shoot of error message;

Error Message 

“ The following error ocured while attempting to connect to the specified Exchange server ‘servername.local’:

The attempt to connect to http://nameserver.local/PowerShell using “Kerberos” authentication failed:

Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message “ The client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request. Verify the 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 WinRM. If the destination is the WinRM service, run the following command on the destination to analyze and configure the WinRM service : “winrm quickconfig”. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic. “

So I try to run “winrm quickconfig” suggested by error message but unfortunately I’m no luck with the command.

Then i try to searching for sollution on the internet and I have any suggestion, that’s problem with IIS server Configuration so I try to check all service on windows services check if IIS service, Windows Wide Web Publishing service not running or any exchange service not running but everything running, try to restart all exchange service and IIS Service but no luck.

I check the IIS configuration by using IIS manager because on the internet I found one solution that explain to me that we can get an error message because EMC can’t connect to "http://nameserver.local/Powershell" that’s main “http” not running so I check the bindings Default server on IIS and that’s right no “http” available. So I create a binding for http on port 80 like picture bellow

After that I try to connect to the server by using EMC then everything back to normal, I can solve the problem then can create some mailbox to finish the request

Hope this help for anyone who have same error like that.
