Enable WSMAN Remotely

Currently with the WMI information feature, you can connect to the host Microsoft Windows WMI namespace to monitor the system hardware. The WMI interface on the host is enabled by default and you can access it remotely. However, if you wish to access the WMI interfaces using WINRM’s WMI adapter, you have to enable it manually as it is not enabled by default. Using this feature, you can access the WINRM WMI namespaces remotely by enabling it during installation.

This feature can be accessed using PowerShell commands. The commands used are as follows:
