Powershell Plugin, HTTPS, and domain credentials

Jump to solution

Has anyone been able to make this work?

I've configured WinRM on my powershell host and it appears to be working correctly.  I can connect via negotiate and kerberos just fine over HTTPS w/ domain credentials.  However, I cannot get the powershell plugin to authenticate w/ a domain service account, it will only connect w/ basic authentication turned on using credentials local to the powershell host. 

I've tried the following syntax for username:

domain\username

username@domain

I did happen to notice that I cannot connect to powershell host forcing basic authentication using the enter-pssession cmdlet either which leads me to the conclusion that basic authentication cannot do domain credentials.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

>that basic authentication cannot do domain credentials.

Yes. The first version of the plugin supports only basic authentication and not with domain credentials.

The good news is that in about 2 weeks, an update release of the plugin would be released that would provide support for kerberos.

Thanks.
