Any Release


There might be various reasons why this issue arises. The manner to troubleshoot this issue would be to follow each point mentioned in the resolution section.


  • Enter inside the MID Server folder looking for the ExecuteRemote.psm1 file and confirm that this is OOTB.  - KB0791120
  • Windows Discovery Probes that use Remote Execution framework may be blocked by Antivirus software or ExecutionPolicy  - KB0727945
  • The MID Server service might be running using a Local System account. The MID Server log with debugging indicates that the test it's failing when performing the check to see if "ExecuteRemote" existed using Get-Module -List command.  If missing it means that the user account probably did not have enough privileges to list the modules. Please see below:
Worker-Interactive:CommandPipeline-e196a9fcdbd00810c339b04ffe961963 DEBUG: execute($env:PSModulePath = $env:PSModulePath + "C:\MID_SERVER\\agent/scripts/Powershell/WinRMAPI")
Worker-Interactive:CommandPipeline-e196a9fcdbd00810c339b04ffe961963 DEBUG: execute($SNC_modList = Get-Module -List; $SNC_modExists = $false; forEach($SNC_module in $SNC_modList) { if ($SNC_module.Name -eq "ExecuteRemote") { $SNC_modExists = $true } } if (!$SNC_modExists) { Write-Host MI8D_COMMAND_FAILURE })
  • If the path has a special character for instance: "MID Server für DEV" you might experience this issue. The solution is to create a new MID Server folder without any special character, for instance: "MidServerDev".
