WinRM operations to Hyper-V fail on a Windows 7 SP1-based or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based computer that has Windows Management Framework 3.0 installed

Consider the following scenario:
  • You manage a Hyper-V host from a computer that is running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
  • You install Windows Management Framework (WMF) 3.0 on the computer.
  • You use Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) to manage the Hyper-V host and virtual machines.
In this scenario, "PUT" operations between Windows Remote Management (WinRM) and Hyper-V fail. Therefore, SCVMM cannot manage updates to the computer or to the virtual machines. When this issue occurs, you receive an error message that resembles the following:
Error number: -2147024882 0x8007000E
Not enough storage is available to complete this operation.
This hotfix is also available at Microsoft Update Catalog.

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notes
Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM,SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:
    VersionProductMilestoneService branch
    6.1.760 0.16xxxWindows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2RTMGDR
    6.1.760 0.20xxxWindows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2RTMLDR
  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.
  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 R2" section. MANIFEST files and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
