Attempting to open Exchange Server 2010’s Exchange Management Console throws the error: “Initialization failed - The following error occurred while attempting to connect to the specified Exchange server ‘exchangeServer.FQDN’: The attempt to connect to http://exchange.domain.com/PowerShell using "Kerberos" authentication failed: Connecting to remote server failed...”

Problem

You attempt to open the Microsoft Exchange On-Premises node in the EMC (Exchange Management Console) but receive the following error:

Initialization failed

The following error occurred while attempting to connect to the specified Exchange server ‘exchangeServer.FQDN’:

The attempt to connect to http://exchange.domain.com/PowerShell using "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 system quota. The next request from this user will not be approved for at least 1381355264 milliseconds. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

Unable to open Exchange Server 2010’s Exchange Management Console with the error: “The attempt to connect to http://exchange.domain.com/PowerShell using "Kerberos" authentication failed: Connecting to remote server failed...”
