Event ID 10140 — Migration of WinRM service configuration

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can migrate WinRM service configuration when performing PC-to-PC migration or upgrades. For example, if a computer is configured to use WS-Management and a user wants to migrate the same configuration to another computer, the issues that can be encountered when doing this migration are modeled in this aspect.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 10140
Source: Microsoft-Windows-WinRM
Version: 6.1
Message: The WinRM service cannot migrate the listener with Address %1 and Transport %2 because the MAC address %3 does not exist on the destination machine. This listener was ignored during migration.

User Action
Create the listener again with the correct MAC address.


Create new listener

The listener from the source configuration could not be migrated because the target computer does not have the matching network configuration, such as an IP address or MAC address. This typically happens if the migration is done from one physical computer to another.

To fix this problem, create a new listener by typing winrm quickconfig at a command prompt.


Use the winrm command-line tool to create a request to the WinRM service to verify that the service is listening on the network.

To create a request, type winrm get winrm/config -r:<computer>, where computer is the name of the remote computer where the Winrm service is running.
