Product: Puppet Remediate
Version: All versions
Puppet Remediate can’t communicate with WinRM servers that have
Message Level Encryption (MLE) enabled. MLE is enabled by default in most WinRM configurations. In the following steps, you’ll create a registry key to disable MLE and fix the issue.
Before you complete these steps, ensure that:
Valid WinRM credentials were added to Remediate.
WinRM is running on remote nodes.
You don’t have networking issues.
Create the following registry key to enable unencrypted messages, which disables MLE.
Registry Hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Registry Path Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WinRM\Service Value Name AllowUnencryptedTraffic Value Type REG_DWORD Enabled Value 1 Disabled Value 0
On the impacted Windows nodes, restart the WinRM service.
