    +title: Winrm4j Client
    +layout: website-normal
    +## Winrm4j parameters
    +Check [org.apache.brooklyn.location.winrm.WinRmMachineLocation](
    +parameters available for WinRM.
    +* host <String>: Host to connect to (required).Default value `null`
    +* port <Integer>: WinRM port to use when connecting to the remote machine.<br>
    +  If no port is specified then it defaults to a port depending on the `winrm.useHttps`
    +* winrm.useHttps <Boolean>: The parameter tells the machine sensors whether the
winrm port is over https. If the parameter is true then 5986 will be used as a winrm port.<br>
    +  Default value: `false`
    +* retriesOfNetworkFailures <Integer>: The parameter sets the number of retries
for connection failures. If you use high value, consider taking care for the machine's network.<br>
    +  Default value: `4`
    +* winrm.useNtlm <Boolean>: The parameter configures tells the machine sensors whether
the winrm port is over https. If the parameter is true then 5986 will be used as a winrm port.<br>
    +  Default value: `true`
    +* winrm.computerName <String>: Windows Computer Name to use for authentication.<br>
    +  Default value: `null`
    +* user <String>: User to connect as<br>
    +  Default value: `null`
    +* password <String>: Password to use to connect.<br>
    +  Default value: `null`
    +* waitWindowsToStart <Duration>: By default Brooklyn will return the machine immediately
after Brooklyn is able to WinRM. Sometimes restart could happen after a Windows VM is provisioned.
    +  This could be because of System Upgrade or other.
    +  By setting this config key to 60s, 5m or other X Duration of time Brooklyn will wait
X amount of time for disconnect to occur.
    +  If connection failure occurs it will wait X amount of time for the machine to come
    +  Default value: `null`
    +If there are location config keys prefixed with `brooklyn.winrm.config.` prefix will
be removed
    +and it will be used to instantiate a `org.apache.brooklyn.util.core.internal.winrm.WiRmTool`
    +## WinRM Connectivity Diagnostics
    +If you are experiencing problems with a windows blueprint against a jclouds location

    +where Apache Brooklyn complains about failing to connect to the IP you should check those
    +1. Apache Brooklyn is using correct username and password
    +1. Apache Brooklyn can reach the IP of the provisioned machine. WinRM port 5985 or 5986
is also reachable from Apache Brooklyn.
    +1. Check whether `WinRmMachineLocation#getDefaultUserMetadataString(ConfigurationSupportInternal)`
is applied on the VM.
    +   This script should be passed to the cloud and executed in order to configure WinRM
according to Apache Brooklyn requirements for authentication.
    +   So far windows startup script are known to be supported on AWS EC2 and VCloud Director.
    +   If your cloud doesn't use this script then tune WinRM parameters accordingly.
    +1. Check whether you use winrm over http or over https.
    +  1. If you are using WinRM over http then make sure WinRM service on target VM has `AllowUnencrypted
= true`
    +If the quick list above doesn't help then follow the steps bellow.
    +To speed up diagnosing the problem we advice to trigger a deployment with the JcloudsLocation
flag `destroyOnFailure: false` so you can check status of the provisioned machine
    +or try later different WinRM parameters with a Apache Brooklyn [BYON Location](../../ops/locations/index.html#byon).
    +After you determined what is the username and the password you can proceed with next
    +*(Notice that for cloud providers which use Auto Generated password will not be logged.
    +For these cases use Java Debug to retrieve ot or provision a VM manually with the same
parameters when using Apache Brooklyn to provision a jclouds location.)*
    +The first step is to find what is the winrm service configuration on the target host.
    +1. If you have RDP access or KVM like access to the VM then check the winrm service status
with the command bellow.
    +   `winrm get winrm/config/service`
    +   If you are using http you should have AllowUnencrypted to false.
    +   Encryption is supported only over https.
    +   Sample output:
    +        MaxConcurrentOperations = 4294967295
    +        MaxConcurrentOperationsPerUser = 1500
    +        EnumerationTimeoutms = 240000
    +        MaxConnections = 300
    +        MaxPacketRetrievalTimeSeconds = 120
    +        AllowUnencrypted = true
    +        Auth
    +            Basic = false
    +            Kerberos = true
    +            Negotiate = true
    +            Certificate = false
    +            CredSSP = true
    +            CbtHardeningLevel = Relaxed
    +        DefaultPorts
    +            HTTP = 5985
    +            HTTPS = 5986
    +        IPv4Filter = *
    +        IPv6Filter = *
    +        EnableCompatibilityHttpListener = false
    +        EnableCompatibilityHttpsListener = false
    +        CertificateThumbprint
    +        AllowRemoteAccess = true
    +Use an Apache Brooklyn BYON blueprint to try easily other connection options.

    I may add that they users test commands preliminary with BYON.
    Such as administrative commands which require CredSSP
