The following error message appears in Mobile Admin while trying to remote the node.

Detected RestrictedLanguage Mode on Target Server.


  • Mobile Admin v8.2 
  • Mobile Admin v8.1


This issue is caused by an application configuration.


  1. Go to the specific server where the error message appears.
  2. Launch IIS Manager (Start > Run > then type "inetmgr")
  3. In IIS manager, Go to Connections Pane > Server > Expand "Sites" > Expand "Default Web Site" > then select PowerShell.
    In the middle pane under ASP.NET, right-click and select "Application Settings" > Open Feature > Right-click PSLanguageMode > Edit. In the new window, change the value from RestrictedLanguage to "FullLanguage" then click OK.
  4. Go to Application Pools, right click MSExchangePowerShellAppPool, then right-click Recycle.
  5. Try to remote the node again via Mobile Admin.
  6. If the error message still appears, restart both the Exchange and MA servers
