Event ID 10128 on Master Image

Please check out for more of my technical posts, alternately please call us on 01932 268289. 

In my POC environment I was getting the following event id that was stopping me from connecting to a virtual desktop

The WinRM service is not listening for HTTP requests because there was a failure binding to the URL (http://+:80/wsman/) in HTTP.SYS.
No remote requests will be serviced on that URL.
User Action
Please use "netsh http" to check if ACL for URL (http://+:80/wsman/) is set to Network Service.
Additional Data
The error code received from HTTP.sys is 5: Access is denied.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at

Once I ran the below command on the golden image, shut it down and took a snapshot and updated the catalogue to the updated image I could connect to the virtual desktop without any problems.

winrm set winrm/config/Service @{EnableCompatibilityHttpListener="true"}
