Assume that you separately install a Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Mailbox server and an Exchange Client Access server in a non-English Exchange environment. When you run Exchange Management Shell (EMS) on the Client Access server, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
VERBOSE: Connecting to Domain
New-PSSession : [Domain] Processing data from remote server Domain failed with the following error message: The request for the Windows Remote Shell with ShellId FA5D7860-6E29-491B-B1A0-7C73C236B786 failed because the shell was not found on the server. Possible causes are: the specified ShellId is incorrect or the shell no longer exists on the server. Provide the correct ShellId or create a new shell and retry the operation. For more information, see the about_Remote_Troubleshooting Help topic.

This issue occurs because the Time and Date strings for EMS connection cookies are in a non-English format. Therefore, Exchange cannot identify the strings.


To resolve this issue, install the following cumulative update:
