The following warning may be present in the Application Event Logs on the SMBR server:
Provider Health: WinRM cannot process the configuration request. The hostname pattern "*" is invalid. Hostname patterns must contain one or more patterns. A pattern can contain at most on wildcard ("*"). The special pattern "<local>" can be used to indicate all hostnames that do not have a ".". To trust all hosts use "*" as the only pattern.
